Before “BABYLON”: Top 5 Paterson Joseph Movies and TV Shows

This BABYLON star’s appearances run the gamut from his award-winning stage work with the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company, to TV appearances in UK scifi institution Doctor Who and cult sketch comedy series That Mitchell and Webb Look. Seemingly never playing the same type twice, this chameleon-like performer modulates each character’s confidence, gravitas, integrity and inner turmoil to create a perfectly unique and memorable figure for any occasion. Don’t take our word for it — check out these five examples:

1. Æon Flux
This effects-laden scifi actioner stars Charlize Theron as the title character, a deadly freedom fighter on a mission to kill the leader of the corrupt, walled-in, stronghold of humanity’s postapocalyptic remnants known as Bregna. Joseph plays Giroux, a principled higher-up who opposes Æon Flux and her group of radicals despite his good intentions. Joseph manages the tricky feat of imbuing the misguided obstacle with sympathetic, even noble qualities that allow the character to serve as a representation of a whole segment of the tortured society.

2. The Beach
Joseph’s first project with BABYLON producer/director Danny Boyle, The Beach stars Leonardo DiCaprio…

Review Revue: SNOW WHITE's GREATER GLORY

Review Revue: SNOW WHITE's GREATER GLORY

Going to the movies should never, ever be stressful (unless, of course, you’re planning on seeing the latest Lars von Trier flick). You want to see something new and relevant so that you can talk it up with your know-it-all friends. But you don’t want to sit through the one film that everyone thought would be great, but…isn’t. So here is our formula, simplifying the should-you-see-it conundrum: 5 new releases x 2 critical samplings = what you should go see. Simple enough, right? This week we have a kickass fairytale, some stoners in high school, Mexican rebels, an animated Parisian cat and a closeted country crooner.

James Cameron with his wife Suzy Amis on the red carpet before the Oscars

Maybe I’m just getting too old and cynical for the Oscars. Heh. When you see Joan Collins out every night, you do start to wonder – what the sam hell is going on? This post will be briefer than the lasts as, well, baby is hungover. Yes, I know. AGAIN. There does seem something so wrong about Oscar week in LA. The abundant narcissism and back slapping is fricking hilarious (“Good Job! That movie you made was awesome! Forget curing cancer – you are the best person alive! Especially because you are so rich and pretty!”).

THE ROAD

THE ROAD

Don’t let the action-packed trailer lead you astray; THE ROAD is true to the book. All the details of Cormac McCarthy’s barren, burnt out landscape are fully realized by director John Hillcoat (THE PROPOSITION), who you can tell took great pains to do right by the author. Instead of creating a street of abandoned, weather-beaten houses in a studio, for example, or hiring a big team of CGI experts to imagine what a decaying, post-apocalyptic shipyard would look like, Hillcoat and his crew actually sought out those environments, mainly in post-Katrina New Orleans.
