Jurassic World-A Fallen Kingdom: Tyrannosaurus, Baryonyx, Indoraptor, Pterosaurs Carnotaurus, Mosaurus, Thesaurus and some human

Jurassic%20World%2C%20Fallen%20Kingdom.jpg
Jurassic World-A Fallen Kingdom: Tyrannosaurus, Baryonyx, Indoraptor, Pterosaurs Carnotaurus, Mosaurus, Thesaurus and some humans You’ve got to give it to them. Since the film is about dinosaurs, they filled the screen with myriad variations on the thematic anima/bird. Problem is, they all do almost the same thing, except with the handler, and that too when he pretends to be sad. The ‘same thing’ is making ferocious calls, and then getting into the seek-and-destroy anything ...

Dad’s Girl-friend, Play review: Giggles, chuckles and a tear for your tissue It’s not as shocking as it seems. Dad’s a widower. He is an acclaimed novelist and the girl- friend is someone who begins as a protégée and ends up being her mentor’s soul-mate.

फेmous, Review: Nothing famous infamous Some fellow critics, when emerging from the screening of a film that tests your patience and insults your intelligence, often mutter quite audibly, “Why do they make such films?” The context, quite obviously, is not existentialist, as codified by Jean Paul Sartre and other European scholars in the 1930s and 40s. Rather, it is angst that is vented out at being taken for a royal ride. A few of those who have seen such films do not review t...

TAIPEI by Jason Lester Romance under influence - USA, first feature film 96 minutes

"Think Romeo and Juliet meets Trainspotting" - Filmfestivals.com Bruno Chatelin

Taipei%20Still%207.jpeg

Taipei is an adaptation of Tao Lin’s critically-acclaimed, cult favorite novel of the same name.

Two young New York writers fall in and out of love amidst a whirlwind of drugs, parties, technology, and travel. As one relationship collapses, another blooms for Erin, swept into the world of Paul Chen, a mysterious, charismatic author. When he proposes documenting every aspect of their new romance in an epic laptop-filmed “documentary”, the couple enter into a performative bad romance, fueled by substances and sleepless nights. Tracking the pair through a shotgun Niagara Falls wedding, an LSD trip in a New Jersey mansion, and to Taiwan, the country of Paul’s birth where the couple comes to confront their individual alienation, Taipei is a visually stunning, extremely contemporary portrayal of what it means to be young, alive, and in love in a digital world.

MOVIES THAT MATTER

Vivre (Ikiru) d’Akira Kurosawa (1952, Japon)

341px-Ikiru_poster.jpg
      Vivre est un film magnifique, le préféré de Kurosawa, dans la veine du néoréalisme des années d’après-guerre. Un vieux fonctionnaire, Kenji Watanabe (Takashi Shimura) vient consulter un médecin sur ses maux d’estomac. Dans la salle d’attente, il rencontre un autre patient qui lui décrit les symptômes du cancer de l’estomac et les réactions des médecins qui, dans ce...
 

Ray de Taylor Hackford (2004, USA)

imm.jpg
Je ne vais pas présenter l’ensemble du film sur le célèbre jazzman Ray Charles, film qui a valu à l’acteur principal, Jamie Foxx, un oscar. Il faut dire que son interprétation était très convaincante. Mais une séquence m’a particulièrement touché (à 1h 06’), comme il arrive parfois lorsqu’on regarde un film, et je dois préciser qu’il s’agit d’une interpr&e...
 

La Tempête qui tue (The Mortal Storme) de Frank Borzage (1940, USA)

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS9OX_inAz2QhZNeP6byU6UshPjXBZgzxWHC77cQug_PVdt1g9Guw
  Frank Borzage (1894-1962) est un cinéaste qu’on a parfois qualifié de romantique et de spiritualiste. Avec The Mortal Storme, il signe un film qui montre la montée du nazisme dans une petite ville universitaire du sud de l’Allemagne, sans autre précision, à la frontière de l’Autriche. C’est un des films les plus antinazis avant l’entrée en guerre des États-Unis. Il adapte le roman de Phyllis Bottome d...

Le Sacrifice (Offret) d'Andrei Tarkovski (Suède, 1986)

sacrifice.jpg
C’est peu après le festival de Cannes de 1983, que Tarkovski, venu présenter Nostalghia, signe avec Anna-Lena Wibom (directrice à l’époque de la Cinémathèque de Stockholm) un contrat sur un film qui devait s’intituler : La Sorcière. Il en changera rapidement le titre pour : Le Sacrifice. Comme le dira Larissa Tarkovski, son épouse, le scénario final est issu de la fusion de deux scénarios origina...
