Cannes 2016: Captain Fantastic review

17 May 2016 8:16 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Captain Fantastic review: Matt Ross brings this Sundance favourite to the south of France. Viggo Mortensen leads an impressive cast.

Captain Fantastic review from the Cannes Film festival, 2016.

Captain Fantastic review

Captain Fantastic debuted at Sundance back in January, but this week receives its European premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, and goes up for the prizes in the Un Certain Regard programme.

This slightly off-beat American drama, revolves around Ben (Viggo Mortensen), a devoted father of six who has raised his children rather unconventionally; in a self-created environment deep in the wilderness. Home-schooling the kids through an extremely rigorous physical and intellectual education, Ben is suddenly forced to bring them into civilisation following a tragic incident, and the children are introduced to a world they do not know and situations they may not be ready for.

Our Kind of Traitor review – Ewan McGregor gets smart in Le Carré potboiler

12 May 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This is meat-and-potatoes Le Carré given a generic spy-movie treatment, but still it reels you in

The insecurity of the modern world has brought John le Carré back out of the shadows. Following Tinker Tailor redux, A Most Wanted Man and the crackerjack hokum of TV’s The Night Manager, this mid-list potboiler finds the author trading shamelessly on western suspicions about Mother Russia, tossing troubled couple Naomie Harris and Ewan McGregor into the geopolitical cut-and-thrust after they befriend vodka-gulping heavy Stellan Skarsgård during a make-or-break Moroccan getaway.

Director Susanna White favours a generic spy-movie look: those chilly blue filters surely need resting now. Yet she works smartly with her actors: while Skarsgård wolfs down great handfuls of scenery, McGregor effectuates a thoughtful transformation from ineffectual tourist to man in the field. Not even the gifted adaptor Hossein Amini (The Two Faces of January) can convince us it’s anything »

Film Review: ‘Our Kind of Traitor’

2 May 2016 6:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In British television director Susanna White’s Cold-War-rekindled thriller “Our Kind of Traitor,” Ewan McGregor plays a character named Perry Makepeace, whose moniker is only slightly more subtle than those of classic Bond girls Pussy Galore, Plenty O’Toole and Xenia Onatopp. A tweedy college professor roped into brokering the defection of Russia’s “No. 1 money launderer,” Makepeace would appear to be making good on his name, were this not the latest espionage thriller from cynic extraordinaire John le Carré, who might have done better to christen his unwitting protagonist Patsy McGullible.

Makepeace is vacationing with girlfriend Gail Perkins (Naomie Harris) in Marrakesh, when he takes the bait, accepting the invitation of boisterous Russian oligarch Dima (Stellan Skarsgård) to attend the sort of party where revelers dance among the fireworks and high-dollar prostitutes roam the halls on horseback. This is pretty much the lifestyle taxpayers figure Gerard Depardieu left France to enjoy, »

Midnight Special movie review: let the children use it

8 April 2016 7:17 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Intensely gripping drama full of smart, thoughtful, personal twists on some familiar sci-fi ideas. Hums with the hope that a better world is within reach. I’m “biast” (pro): love Michael Shannon; big sci-fi geek

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There’s some very good storytelling advice that applies no matter what medium you’re telling your story in (film, novel, comic book, whatever): Jump into the action as late in the game as possible. And wow, did Jeff Nichols take that advice to a delicious extreme with Midnight Special. We are dumped right into the middle of what would be, in a more conventional movie, the third act — that is, the final sequence that is racing the story toward its resolution. There is no setup here because we don’t need it: we’ve seen enough stories »
