North Atlantic (2010)
Blackfish, The Act Of Killing - we celebrate the great documentaries distributed by the UK's Dogwoof...
Did you know that around 20 percent of the films released in the UK are documentaries? It’s a surprisingly large figure. I think the reason behind it might be that ‘documentary’ is considered to be a genre in and of itself. “And the Academy Award for best documentary feature goes to…”. They're all lumped into the same bracket. Also, they're relatively cheap to make and can be assembled independently by a team of only a few people. Success at the box office is often down on the priorities list for creators wanting to spread a message, tell a story or get a point across and, when they only need to recoup that small amount to be considered successful, documentary cinema becomes fertile ground for ambitions to grow in.

Ken Sturdy, a native of Wales who currently lives in Calgary, Canada, donned a suit jacket adorned with medals when he headed to Calgary’s Westhills Cinemas on Friday to watch the World War II drama that he lived through nearly 80 years ago.
“I never thought I would see that again,” Sturdy told Canada’s Global News. “It was just like I was there again.”
The film tells the story of the historic battle that took place between

“It didn’t have a lot of dialogue. It didn’t need any of the dialogue because it told the story visually and it was so real,” he continued. “Dunkirk” is light on conventional plotting and dialogue, as Nolan opted for an experiential, you-are-there approach that favors action over words. Sturdy, who was 20 at the time, served as

Trump caused a social media stir when he tweeted, “Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” on Tuesday night. The post remained up for several hours before it was deleted early Wednesday morning and replaced by another one about the faux word.
“Who can figure out the true meaning of “covfefe” ??? Enjoy!” he wrote.
Twitter attempted to figure out the meaning of “covfefe” as the word began trending, with celebrities, journalists and authors weighing in and taking a stab as they attempted to decipher Trump’s now-deleted tweet.

Gauthier Destenay, the husband of Luxembourg’s Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, joined Trump and other spouses for a dinner while their significant others attended a gathering as part of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (Nato) conference in Brussels, Belgium.
Prime Minister Bettel, 44, and Belgian architect Destenay entered a civil partnership in 2010 and married in 2015 after Luxembourg’s legislators approved gay marriage. Bettel became the first

From The Curse of the Black Pearl all the way up to 2011’s On Stranger Tides, this featurette is perhaps the perfect primer for Dead Men Tell No Tales, which opens at a time when Johnny Depp’s erratic anti-hero is couped up in hiding. That self-imposed exile doesn’t last terribly long, though, particularly when Javier Bardem’s Salazar claws his way out of the Devil’s Triangle seeking revenge.
The other two, according to The Hollywood Reporter, have set up shop across Universal and Warner Bros., though with Raimi now in talks to helm the mystery thriller, it seems Skydance’s movie is the furthest along even at this early stage in development.
Centering on the infamous stretch of sea between Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda, the Bermuda Triangle (Aka the Devil’s Triangle) has a long history of aircraft and ships venturing into its waters, only to disappear without a trace. Estimations are all over the place, and ever since the phrase Bermuda Triangle was first coined in 1964, that relatively small channel in the North Atlantic has become something of a worldwide phenomenon among conspiracy theorists, with potential
British Prime Minister Theresa May has joked about the size of President Donald Trump’s hands at a fundraising event in London.
May made the crack at the Black and White Ball after being applauded by guests, The Telegraph reports. “I don’t think I have received such a big hand since I walked down the colonnade at the White House,” she said in response, apparently referencing a photo of herself and the U.S. president walking hand-in-hand during her visit to Washington last month.
As a candidate, Donald Trump called the North Atlantic Treaty Organization “obsolete.
Ralitza Petrova’s Godless has won this year’s Golden Puffin, the top award at the 13th Reykjavik International Film Festival (Riff)
The jury, comprised of Goteborg artistic director Jonas Holmberg, Rams director Grimur Hákonarson and bestselling Icelandic novelist Yrsa Sigurðardóttir, said, “The Golden Puffin goes to a bleak but beautiful film with poignant acting and atmospheric cinematography. The film combines the downbeat suspense of an medicalised crime story with a subtle portrayal of the agony in a post communist society where redemption is only glimpsed in the sacral world of music.”
Godless, which is a Bulgarian-Danish-French co-production, previously won the Golden Leopard in Locarno and the Special Jury Award and the Heart of Sarajevo for best actress (Irena Ivanova) at Sarajevo Film Festival. It also won five national awards at the Golden Rose National Film Festival in Bulgaria.

IndieWire’s own David Ehrlich describes “American Pastoral” as a “disaster,” calling McGregor’s direction “competent but uncreative,” and his fidelity to Roth’s text “asphyxiating:”
“As it stumbles towards its hero’s decline… ‘American Pastoral’ increasingly feels like
And so it proves for first-time director Ewan McGregor, whose “American Pastoral” tackles the greatest of Roth’s late-period works with obvious admiration and attempted fidelity, only to see the beating heart of the book slip further and further from his grasp with every scene. Groping for grand tragedy and finding only actorly melodrama, shooting for political contrarianism but landing instead on reactionary conventionalism, “American Pastoral” is as flat and strangled as its source is furious and expansive.
In addition to directing, McGregor also stars as the ill-fated protagonist Seymour “Swede” Levov,

End of the world, for real. No heroes to save the day. No reprieve. A big-ass meteor has hit in the North Atlantic, and Australia has 12 hours before the planet-scouring firestorm hits. (There may be some scientific problems with this scenario: an Earth-killing strike would perhaps wrack even the other side of the planet instantly with unendurable quakes and the like? But never mind.) Everyone has known for quite a while that this has been coming, and James (Nathan Phillips: Snakes on a Plane) has plans: to be as wasted as possible when armageddon hits, because “it’s
