Today we have the first footage from the "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman," starring Shia LaBeouf, Evan Rachel Wood, Rupert Grint, Mads Mikkelsen, Til Schweiger, and Melissa Leo.
In the movie, a man (LaBeouf) falls in love with a woman (Wood) who's claimed by a violent crime boss. It's directed by Fredrik Bond and already premiere at the Sundance Film Festival last month.
LaBeouf previously revealed that there's a scene in the movie in which his character is high on acid. To make the scene seem realistic, the actor actually took acid. The result ended up being intense. "Sometimes, it does get real," said LaBeouf of the day he shot the scene. "Too real for a [director] who's trying to keep a diplomatic set."
I didn't mind Shia until all his f*ckING STUPID comments about his "method" started appearing everywhere. "I madea sex tape with my girl for a director, I'm going to f*ck on film, I tripped balks on film, blah, blah, blah." He sounds so desperate to prove he's a serious actor that he comes off as a self-obsessed little kid living in his insular acting wirld. He does things because he read somewhere that "Brando this" or "Brando did that". I'm sure when he gets around to reading Brando took a womans finger up his ass for "Last Tango in Paris", he'll immediately get someone to pop a digit in his bunghole, just so he can have that experuence to pull from for his "method."

Shia "Le boeuf is redefinind the method actor alright. But to be honest, shia is trying something more serious than just being in the middle of giant robots and therefore he could end up getting some credits eventually. At least the guy is trying, I'll give him that.
No other French director has its equal than Léos Carax and his even weirder actor Denis Lavant. So expect something "different" with holy Motors as I think it's worth watching just for the sake of having something "original" from the usual blockbusters where you don't to think too much.

This kid has only had one good performance in his entire career and the was in Wall Street 2. Other than that he's been nothing but a complete disaster imo.
I had no desire to see this until they threw a midget in at the end of the trailer. Now I have to see it :-)
You hit the nail on the head, my friend. He's not a good actor so he overdoes things in an attempt to show people how mature he is and how serious he is.
Like makes sex tapes for Lars von Trier even though von Trier never asked him to. Or drank moonshine for Lawless even though his character rarely drank in the film. Or does acid and sends a tape of it to Evan Rachel Wood.
Also he said he beat up Tom Hardy. TOM. HARDY.

One movie I will never, never, never ever f*cking watch. I hate this f*cking little faggot.
I've never had a bad trip on acid. I bet he'd be the worst person to be around on that sh*t.

They put Rubert Grint in this to make Shia look more attractive.

So gay the happy running scene and is out of fashion this days! Anyway, this scene is a total ripoff of Meet Joe Black setup plot point, isn't?

I had watched it and completely agree that in a weird way its quite refreshing. It is weird as f*ck but you just can't look away, and the graveyard scene is one of the funniest/weirdest scenes ever. He definitely beats Gaspar Noe on the strange stakes.
