Even in a year overloaded with cool things, it’s going to be hard to top Duncan Jones’ mystery/thriller Mute for coolest thing of the year. Good? Bad? Who knows? Cool? Yep.
The film stars Alexander Skarsgård, Justin Theroux, and Paul Rudd, and there’s absolutely no telling what it might be about. In a somewhat “Blade Runner-y” future, a mute goes after gangsters to try to discover what happened to his partner, but what that might mean as far as narrative development is a very wide world where Duncan Jones is concerned.
