The long-awaited film of the DC universe, the great drama of Soviet cinema, a thriller about fiber optics and rotten inside of capitalism, a cartoon about the clash of miracles and materialism, a Russian soul-saving tragicomedy, a rum with a touch of aerophobia and a biopic of the most famous Italian on the planet - what will you watch this weekend?
The Canadian film by Todd Phillips about the most odious antihero of the DC universe will definitely turn your attitude towards film comics. This story does not resemble the usual extravaganza with super-villainous delights, because the director decided to focus on the formation of the character.
The plot is surprisingly close to the classics of Russian literature: barely making ends meet, the hospital clown Arthur Fleck, living in a hut with a sick mother, reminds me of an eternally suffering little man
whose troubles spit the mighty of this world. Even Thomas Wayne, who stands for general well-being, is eager for the mayors of Gotham. The life of the unfortunate Arthur collapses, brings to the edge and throws into the abyss of madness. However, he turns out to be not just a “trembling creature”: a combination of circumstances and several extravagant decisions - and now he is already a symbol of all destitute and desperate people. Joker at the forefront of the struggle against social injustice - I guarantee, you have not seen this before. And it’s really worth a look! Read the review of the film here
Viburnum red (1973)
The only film by Vasily Shukshin, shot on color film, can again be seen in the movies, although the premiere took place back in March 1974. However, really great paintings do not have an expiration date, so we boldly recommend enjoying the classics on the big screen: this tape penetrates to the core, captures and amazes with amazing sincerity and strength.
The plot is quite relevant now: after being released from prison, Yegor Prokudin, nicknamed Gore, leaves for the village where he lives only by Lyubov’s letters. At first, the man sees as his goal only to wait a little outside and look around, but then he decides to break with the past and start a new life with his beloved woman and normal work. But the dark past does not want to let Yegor go ...
Operation Hummingbird (The Hummingbird Project)
16 milliseconds is a flap of a hummingbird's wing. It would seem an insignificant small period of time, but it was he, according to cousins-traders Vincent and Anton Zaleski, who separated them from the realization of the American dream. They decided to stretch the cable across the country and get quotes a little earlier than the rest. This is just enough to cut millions! However, in order to realize the scam of the century, you need to cope with their former boss, the ingenious and unprincipled Eva Torres, and agree with the owners of the land along which the optical fiber should pass, because to implement the plan, the line should be absolutely straight.
From a rather lively and fascinating spectacle, the tape gradually turns into a sermon that the goals imposed by an unprincipled capitalist society are the essence of decay and filth. The main thing is love, friendship, family values: for example, like the Amish
, with whom the main characters have to deal. This, of course, is correct and all that, but the viewer does not expect this from a similar tape.
A little girl named Lu discovers in her secret shelter on the roof of a yeti baby. It turns out that this amazing beast is not just kind and sweetheart, but also has amazing abilities, because of which he was caught by special services, but fled. Lou and her friends decide to help their humanoid friend, nicknamed Everest, get home to the highest mountain in the world.
The brainchild of Jill Calton, though childishly naive and full of assumptions characteristic of children's cartoons, was created not just to amuse the baby. It becomes a real reproach for adults who are trying to catch, subjugate and destroy almost everything wonderful that is in our world. The tape is not very suitable for an older audience, but watching a company with children will not be boring and sometimes instructive.
Popular in the past, rock musician Fima has long flown out of rotation, thumps, rides a bike and does not see the point in life. Suddenly, a mysterious businessman Roman Yuryevich turns to him, who promises an impressive reward for playing guitar lessons. It soon turns out, however, that the businessman is actually a shy Roma schoolboy suffering from cerebral palsy (albeit really well-off). He wants to perform at the graduation the favorite composition of his classmate Masha, the main beauty and activist of the parallel, to win her heart. And Fima should help him with the implementation of the plan.
Mikhail Morskov turned out to be a surprisingly sweet soul-saving tragicomedy, which is perfect for inspiring and crawling out of the autumn blues. Or maybe a deep depression and a life impasse.
Can you keep secrets? (Can You Keep a Secret?)
Elise Duran is a film adaptation of the best-seller of the same name by Sophie Kinsella, who has been somewhat forgotten since 2003 and has become a very suitable basis for a modern successful romkom. Moreover, the horror of flying unites many modern people. So, Emma, after an unsuccessful business trip, gets on a plane, gets drunk to calm her nerves ... And, having suffered fear in turbulence, she spreads all her ins and outs on a chair neighbor, like a psychotherapist. He turns out to be the main boss in her company. And it seems that the young people are starting a completely successful romance, but only the boyfriend, unlike Emma, is in no hurry to share personal.
In general, it turned out not a bad, albeit excessively “pinky,” melodrama. Under the mood and a large can of ice cream, the girls will go fine. In addition, this film can be an interesting excursion into the mores and relationships between the sexes that now reign in the Western world.
Leonardo da Vinci. Unknown Worlds (Io, Leonardo)
Italian Jesus Garces Lambert took up the difficult task of filming a biography of one of his greatest compatriots, Leonardo da Vinci. It’s not easy, because this man, in addition to creating masterpieces and devising amazing mechanisms, was a noble intriguer, homosexual and, they say, a murderer.
The tape pleases with the idea (after all, a biography of a genius is not an entertaining slag for you) and a caste, however, it does not reach its goals with scope and financing. The result was not a movie, but a program for some Discovery. But fans of da Vinci's creativity or, for example, students of creative specialties will be interested to go to the show.
