Do you remember that amazing Stephen Dorff “Behind the Scenes” infomercial for Blu-E Cigarettes? The one that was six minutes of rambling, apparently unedited footage of actor Stephen Dorff (Blade, FeardotCom, Space Truckers) wearing a silly hat and playing piano in someone’s beach bungalow while taking e-cig breaks during a commercial for the Blu-U brand?
Well, one e-cigarette company decided to take it to the next level. Meet White Cloud Electronic Cigarettes’ newest spokesperson … Stephen DWARF.
Brake is both the title of a new thriller that will leave you breathless, and the one thing you’ll be yelling for to survive it. Directed at break-neck speed by Gabe Torres, it’s a movie so original and terrifying that to even attempt to tell you what it’s about would ruin the fun of discovering it for yourself. Suffice it to say, you will not be bored.
The star is Stephen Dorff, an unpredictable and always interesting actor who eschews the big bucks and easy fame of mainstream movies to devote his career to more challenging and transformative roles in quirky, low-budget independents—68 of them so far—ranging from good (Public Enemies) to bad (Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere) to downright unspeakable (Cecil B. Demented). He prefers risks to even bets, and he has proved himself fearless. (Don’t forget, he once played drag queen Candy Darling in I Shot Andy Warhol.) In Brake, he comes closest to leading-man status as he is likely to get, and the crackerjack results are well worth the 90-minute investment.
