Synopsis:

Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to ‘Sparrow School’ a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. But her first mission, targeting a CIA agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations.

Red Sparrow backs the ideology that all humans are a puzzle piece and that once one comes to understand what an individual is missing, a significant other can fill that void and make them whole, attaining full control in the process. In other words, this game of espionage involving Russians and American is more fascinatingly about the psychological

Clean Hands review – drug-dealing goes Dutch

A laudable lead performance and some good action sequences elevate this heavy-handed drugs thriller by director Tjebbo Penning

Surely, there must be some contractual reason why this punnet of greasy genre junk-food cinema from the Netherlands is getting a theatrical release in the UK. After all, it’s highly doubtful there will be more of handful of punters interested in seeing it here, unless perhaps a fleet of buses containing Dutch holiday-makers decide to camp next to a multiplex showing it and find themselves with nothing else to do on a rainy Saturday afternoon. Should that happen, they would be rewarded with a committed, laudably nuanced performance from Thekla Reuten as the see-no-evil wife of Jeroen van Koningsbrugge’s middle-management drug dealer. After years of trying to look the other way, Reuten’s Sylvia finally admits to herself that her husband is a violent psychopath whose line of work is

Film Review: ‘Atlantic.’

Film Review: ‘Atlantic.’
Brief plot descriptions are often deceptive, which is why categorizing “Atlantic.” as a windsurfing movie, or even an immigration drama, fails to capture the sensitivity and lyricism that sophomore helmer Jan-Willem van Ewijk and d.p. Jasper Wolf bring to this engaging, generally restrained pic. Beautifully shot on the Moroccan coast, the film tells of a local windsurfer whose frequent association with Euro travelers adds a highly charged pull to the already palpable draw of departure. Atmospheric, at times impressionistic while still firmly tied to a discernible plot, “Atlantic.” is sailing smoothly in fest waters, and could see a small Euro release.

Perhaps there’s too much whispered voiceover from Fettah (Fettah Lamara), and the introduction of choral voices into Piet Swerts’ sweeping music is definitely unnecessary. Yet tangible rewards come from the way van Ewijk evokes the tug-of-war tension between a connection to place and a yearning for what lies beyond.

Top 10 “One Last Job” Scenes

With November Man out, excitement for Pierce Bosnan’s return to spying is at an all-time high for many James Bond fans. November Man, based on the seventh installment of Bill Granger’s book series called There Are No Spies, is about ex- CIA agent Peter Devereaux (Pierce Bosnan). While living a quiet life in Switzerland, Devereaux is ejected out of retirement for one last mission. Although the concept of the “one last mission/job” is not a new concept for Hollywood, it definitely has its place in cinema history, branching out to a wide range of reasons why our beloved characters are being pulled back into their past lives. From a retiree’s last gig, to the bad-boy-gone-good-and-then-bad-again mission, to the revenge premise, mythology of the ex-professional can surely delight and excite us to champion our heroes for one last fight. Here are scenes from ten incredible “one last job” films,
