Watch: John Hawkes Seduces With Song From ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’

Written by on October 25, 2011 

For those still without the opportunity to experience Sean Durkin‘s entrancing, disturbing Martha Marcy May Marlene in theaters (as it should be seen), here’s a taste of what to expect from one of the film’s stand-out performances. John Hawkes has been around for years and years and years, from kind performances in blockbusters like The Perfect Storm, complicated ones in stuff like Me and You and Everyone We Know and, finally, evil ones in recent fare like Winter’s Bone and Martha. And though his filmography be large, Hawkes has perhaps no one more memorable scene than the one this song below accompanies, Hawkes’ cult leader slowly, steadily wooing his young followers.

Check out today’s Daily Distraction below [via First Showing] and read our interview with Hawkes on Martha Marcy May Marlene at the link.

Durkin won the Drama Directing Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The film also includes a breakout performance from Elizabeth Olsen, who can next be seen in Rodrigo Cortes Red Lights opposite Robert De Niro and Josh Radnor‘s Liberal Arts. Her one-take horror film Silent House also just got scheduled for a March 2012 release date.

Martha Marcy May Marlene is now in limited release and you can see its expansion schedule here.

What do you think of the song? Would you join his cult?
