Radcliffe has come a long way from his days as The Boy Who Lived and he branching out as far as he can to secure his career in film beyond his wizard character. In the directorial debut of Daniel Ragussis who also wrote the film about real life FBI agent over his head Nate Foster. The tension is so thick you’d need a chainsaw to break free and what makes it all the more confirming that the people Foster infiltrates are nuts is that he himself is clearly white!
Radcliffe is not shying away from the bold roles in recent years and seems to be embracing the indie film world one role at a time. From his disappointing book adaptation of Horns to recently becoming a farting corpse in the much anticipated Swiss Army Man, Radcliffe is finding his niche in the film world. He seems genuinely concerned and scared for his life in the film and the part that got me the most wasn’t that final scene, but the fact he has to get a tattoo to confirm his allegiance to these white radicals.
It looks terrifiying in ways I’d hope none of you learn on your own and it’s scariest because these are real people in the real world we are talking about. The film comes out August 16th, 2016.
