American actress and fashion icon Chloë Sevigny is one of Hollywood's boldest and most gifted actors. Known for her many indie film roles, Sevigny has garnered much critical acclaim since her 1995 debut, most recently a Golden Globe for her performance on HBO's Big Love. Sevigny is also widely revered for her sense of style, and recently launched her fourth collection for the hip NY label Opening Ceremony.

More fresh caps today! The gallery has just been updated with 426 1080p Blu-Ray screen captures of Chloë Sevigny as Ingrid in Werner Herzog’s drama/thriller My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done, starring Michael Shannon, Willem Dafoe and Chloë’s Big Love co-star Grace Zabriskie. Hope you like ‘em!
Personally, I’m not really sure how I feel about this one as a movie. I said it’s a drama/thriller, but the movie is not really that easily categorized. I don’t know that I quite understood why and how Brad transformed, but Shannon delivers an incredible, unparalleled performance as the unpredictable Brad, and Chloë is simply terrific as the (by contrast) grounded Ingrid; a subtle yet strong performance as a likable and easily relatable character. Together with Shannon, they really carry the film for me.
According to the Amazon.com and .co.uk product listings, Werner Herzog’s psychological thriller My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done will be released on Region 1 / North American and Region 2 / European DVD on September 14 and September 27 respectively. Both are available for pre-order via Amazon, the Region 1 DVD for $24.98 and Region 2 for £12.99. Be sure to get your copy!

It’s been a while since we last had any movie news to update with. Fangoria now reports, however, that Werner Herzog’s My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done thriller has been picked up for a theatrical release. Chloë Sevigny stars as Ingrid in the film opposite Michael Shannon, Willem Dafoe and Grace Zabriskie. From Fangoria:
Absurda and Industrial Entertainment have announced that their film MY SON, MY SON, WHAT HAVE YE DONE has set a debut theatrical-release date. The movie marks the first collaboration between cinematic mavericks Werner Herzog and David Lynch, who directed and executive-produced respectively.
MY SON, MY SON will open Friday, December 11 at New York City’s IFC Center (323 6th Avenue), with playdates in other cities to follow. Though word from early screenings is that it’s not really a horror film, it does deal with rather twisted subject matter—a man (BUG’s Michael Shannon) who murders his mother with a sword while acting out a Sophocles play—and features a genre-centric cast including ANTICHRIST’s Willem Dafoe, SISTERS’ Chloe Sevigny, Udo Kier and Brad Dourif.
Be sure to visit the film’s official site at MySon-MySon.com if you haven’t already; some small new promotional stills of Chloë in the film have been uploaded from the website to our gallery. Also, check out the trailer for the film below:
As reported earlier, Werner Herzog’s reality-based drama My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done, starring Chloë Sevigny opposite Michael Shannon, Willem Dafoe and Grace Zabriskie, premiered today at the ongoing Venice Film Festival. A festival photocall for the film was also held today, which was attended by Shannon and Herzog as well as producer Giulia Marletta and screenwriter Herbert Golder.
The first photos from today’s premiere are beginning to surface online, none of which feature Chloë, however, and at this point it is unlikely Chloë is in Venice at all. What a shame! Shannon, Werner Herzog and his wife Lena as well as producer Marletta all attended the premiere red carpet.
Variety reports Werner Herzog’s reality-based drama film My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done, starring Chloë Sevigny as Ingrid opposite Michael Shannon, Willem Dafoe and Grace Zabriskie, which surprise-screened yesterday to the press at the ongoing Venice Film Festival. The film will be screened to the festival audience today and tomorrow.
Unfortunately, the review is not particularly encouraging. Excerpt courtesy of Variety:
Following so hot on the heels of Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans that the latter’s shoe leather will be scuffed, Werner Herzog’s My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done, unspooled in Venice as a surprise film, actually repped the lesser surprise, given Lieutenant‘s unexpectedly friendly Lido reception. Teeming with quirky references to Herzog’s oeuvre, My Son will feel like familiar territory for the helmer’s fans, but that doesn’t make it a good film. Though fitfully fascinating, this account of a deranged matricide never gels and will struggle even harder than Rescue Dawn to find an aud. [...]
Even the laziest armchair critic couldn’t fail to spot how Brad reps but the latest in a long line of Herzog protagonists a few sandwiches shy of a picnic, from nearly every character Klaus Kinski played for the helmer through the many eccentrics featured in his docus, right up to Timothy Treadwell in Grizzly Man. However, despite the innate charisma Shannon, with his Andean-range-long stare, brings to the role, common-or-garden schizophrenic Brad McCullum simply isn’t all that interesting. (Although one rather warms to him when he channels Herzog with an anti-hippie rant — “Stop meditating! Come up with a coherent argument!” — in the Peruvian interlude.)
Pic’s other characters are not a particularly compelling bunch, which is even more disappointing given that they’re played by some pretty big names. Dafoe, Sevigny and Kier seem to be competing to see who can give the most arch, knowingly flat perf, putting invisible air quotes around their renditions of “normal” suburbanites. David Lynch regular Zabriskie (Inland Empire), on the other hand, hams it up royally, particularly in a scene in which she smiles creepily at Brad and Ingrid for what seems like a full minute of screen time.
In fact, at times the pic feels like a joshing, good-natured parody of a Lynch movie, given the big deal made of coffee in one scene, the use of spooky underlighting and the comical, nonsensical appearance of a person of restricted growth (Verne Troyer). Of course, Herzog arguably got there first with the creepy little people in Even Dwarfs Started Small. In any event, Lynch is definitely in on the joke; he exec produced the pic, which is billed as “a David Lynch presentation.”
Collider has the first five promotional stills from Werner Herzog’s reality-based thriller My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done, starring Chloë Sevigny opposite Michael Shannon, Grace Zabriskie, Willem Dafoe, Michael Peña and Brad Dourif. To our pleasure, four of them feature Chloë in her as-of-yet untitled role — check them out at our gallery!
Some smaller movie-related updates today. To begin with the main topic of today’s post, Variety reports Unified Pictures will be taking Werner Herzog’s upcoming horror film, My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done to Cannes for a first look. From Variety:
Unified will use Cannes Market to show footage of Werner Herzog’s thriller My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done, with Chloë Sevigny and Michael Shannon. It’ll be the first time buyers get a look.
On another note, ContactMusic cites Chloë Sevigny (presumably) at the 2009 Coachella Music Festival in May:
Actress Chloë Sevigny wants to become the next big female action star, insisting she’s fitter than most people think she is. The Boys Don’t Cry star has made a name for herself in a series of gritty low-budget indie movies, but now she’s keen to be the next Angelina Jolie.
She says, “I would love to do an action movie. I’m actually very physically fit. I don’t think people think of me that way.” [...] “I read a lot of those scripts and audition, but I think I am just not a big enough name – it’s all about figures and what your movies have accumulated and I’ve never been in a movie that made money.”
