Aquaman Aquaman review: 'It’s silly stuff, awash with clumsy CGI, daft beyond compare' Paul Whitington With all due respect to the DC cinematic universe, it’s very much the poor relation of the Disney/Marvel behemoth, and while its films always cost a lot of money, they rarely seem to make much.

'Crucified in Cannes': Dillon has teamed up with controversial director Lars von Trier for his latest film, The House that Jack Built I literally thought, 'I'm not sure if I can do this' - actor Matt Dillon on his serial killer role in one of 2018's most extreme films Tim Robey In 1983, critic Roger Ebert interviewed Matt Dillon at the apex of his teen-idol celebrity. The 18-year-old had just made a hit of Francis Ford Coppola's The Outsiders, luring in hordes of hyperventilating female fans. Ebert found him puffing on a cigarette, in a leather jacket, in Santa Fe's old town square. With his brooding, all-American sex appeal, Dillon could hardly avoid the comparisons to James Dean that were falling all about him, from Ebert and everyone else.
