Locarno Film Review: ‘Floride’

9 August 2015 6:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nearly four decades after winning his first Cesar, French star Jean Rochefort (whom Americans may recognize as the man Terry Gilliam intended to play Don Quixote) is still working steadily, though hardly ever in films of note. Simply put, projects like “Floride” — based on Florian Zeller’s prize-winning play “The Father” — rarely come his way anymore. Boasting a lead role as juicy as a sun-ripened orange, this late-career blessing may as well be Rochefort’s “Nebraska,” allowing the beloved character actor to adapt his persona — in which venerability leaves room for an almost childish streak of mischief — to that of a once-proud patriarch suffering from dementia. Sensitive without lapsing into sentimentality, “Floride” marks the sort of gently irreverent French film that elderly arthouse auds seem to love best, blending humor and pathos to crowd-pleasing effect.

‘Fury’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Brad Pitt, Shia Labeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña, Jon Bernthal, Jim Parrack, Brad William Henke, Kevin Vance, Xavier Samuel, Jason Isaacs, Anamaria Marinca, Alicia von Rittberg, Scott Eastwood, Laurence Spellman, Daniel Betts | Written and Directed by David Ayers

After End of Watch and now Fury writer/director David Ayer has shown a knack for depicting the bond that forms between people when they face death on an endless basis. Fury  falls in line with similar World War II films, like Saving Private Ryan, that do not shy away from the inhuman brutality of war. Fury will fully engage audiences with its intense battle sequences and solid performances, but what it lacks is a consistent thematic message. The weight it builds becomes cheapen as it enters into an over simplification of the glory of war.

When the film begins it appears as if Ayer is content on illustrating the futile »
