Film - Dog Eat Dog


Willem Dafoe, Nicolas Cage and a lot of violence and humour in the trailer for Paul Schrader's new film Dog Eat Dog...

Carved from a lifetime of experience that runs the gamut from incarceration to liberation, Dog Eat Dog is the story of three men who are all out of prison and now have the task of adapting themselves to civilian life. The California three strikes law looms over them, but what the hell, they're going to do it, and they're going to do it their way. Troy (Nicolas Cage), an aloof mastermind, seeks an uncomplicated, clean life but cannot get away from his hatred for the system. Diesel (Christopher Matthew Cook - The Walking Dead) is on the mob's payroll and his interest in his suburban home and his nagging wife is waning. The loose cannon of the trio, Mad Dog, is possessed by true demons within, which lead him from one situation to the next. One more hit, one more jackpot, and they'll all be satisfied. 

An adaptation of Edward Bunker's crime novel of the same name, the film is written and directed by Paul Schrader, who was also responsible for the screenplays for Martin Scorsese’s Bringing Out the Dead, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and The Last Temptation of Christ as well as writing The Mosquito Coast and American Gigolo. Schrader also co-stars in the film along with Louisa Krause (Billions). Dog Eat Dog, which closed the Director's Fortnight at Cannes this year, is still looking for a distributor so has no scheduled release date as yet but we hope that it won't be long.
