Need to catch up? Check out last week’s Quantico recap here.
Now, it’s entirely possible that the headline for next week’s Quantico recap will be: “Sorry, TVLine Readers, But I Had as Tough a Time as You Did Telling Who Was and Wasn’t Lying on This Show, So Here’s the Really Real Terrorist For Real.” But, absent any more left turns from the ABC drama, it looks like Liam — and not Drew, as the last episode led us to believe — is the mastermind behind all the bombings, voices and Alex-mind-effing that’s gone down this season. »
The Cannes Film Festival 2016 array is almost complete with the unveiling earlier today (19 April) of the line-up for the Directors’ Fortnight celebrating its 48th edition with 18 features, including Paul Schrader’s crime thriller Dog Eat Dog with Nicolas Cage as the closing film.
The sidebar will open with Marco Bellocchio’s Sweet Dreams which has Berenice Béjo as a woman coming to terms with the mystery surrounding her mother’s death a few years previously. Béjo also features in Belgian film-maker Joachim Lafosse’s drama about a relationship break-up, L’economie Du Couple.

The choice of the Bellocchio as opener demonstrates a commitment to Italian cinema which was ignored in the official selection. Other Italian titles »

Two For The Road screens at 10:30am Saturday morning, January 30th at The Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117). Admission is $10 and this is a fundraiser sponsored by the St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society Alliance.
Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn star in director Stanley Donen’s Two For The Road, which uses multiple parallel flashbacks to chronicle a couples’ 12-year marriage. The marriage in the present is falling apart as their love for one another dissolves. As they drive through the back roads of France they relive two other times in their lives when the same trip was made under much better circumstances. The cinematic trick of jumping from one road trip to the other is expertly handled. Hepburn and Finney are both terrific in the film. And the movie, released in 1967, captures the mood of the 60s before Nam, the Counterculture, and radical politics so altered the landscape. »
