11 Dec 2013
John Bolton: The songs from the Rankin-Bass holiday specials. Those shows were such big events when I was growing up in the '70s. If you missed that year's showing of "Rudolph" or "Santa Claus in Comin' to Town" that was it. There were no videotapes. You had to wait a whole year.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
