Re: “In Mommy, Canadian wunderkind Xavier Dolan sides with a parent and son who face the impossible

Mommy was extremely well received at Cannes and Oscar nominalozat is one of those rare moments when he spontaneously applauded frantically. Critics were very enthusiastic and they said the young director Quebecois (25) together with Godard and Almodovar, Mommy tells the moving story of a mother and her son, a hyperactive teenager and big problems adjusting to society, 15 years old. "In a fictitious Canada in 2015, the government amended the law of health services" - as they say at the beginning of the film - a woman of 46, widowed and unemployed, have a choice whether to live with her boy "more special" crisis assuming its effects, or to hospitalized in a sanatorium, under the effect of newly introduced laws.

Re: “Belcourt brings back a fleet of current Oscar nominees and more

Michael Keaton in the film Birdman is extraordinary role sixties obsessed actor not to impress the masses, who are still loyal to the decades after the success of films with Birdman and would continue to see a sequel, but the public "that counts" critics and the rest of the guild Emmanuel Lubezki Filmed as if made of a single sequence plan, Birdman is helped by an excellent set design and choreography true to the characters. Most of the interactions taking place in the theater on Broadway where it mounts Thomson's play, the actors and the director uses booths, the long and the dark corridors, backstage and theater roof to circumscribe a territory where egos face, generation and dreams, and popularity prestige, real imagery. González Iñárritu is the place offers a sample of cinema that should not be missed Oscar-nominated film is unique, watching

Re: “With Jupiter Ascending, the Wachowskis descend to exposition-clogged space opera

Glad to see that this and the latest YA adaptation, SEVENTH SON, bombed over the weekend. Maybe audiences are tired of the same old "melodramatic sci-fi schlock."

I'm not sure why the Wackowskis keep getting huge budgets to make these turkeys. They haven't had a hit since the MATRIX trilogy. Maybe their movies are hits in Asia, which seems to be all that matters to studios these days.

Re: “A Most Violent Year cheats to tell you about honesty

Don't you mean,. but still got it most right? Sure, Chandon cheated in the script, but to me he seemed to have written a story about a self-righteous blowhard who uses "integrity" as just another sales tool, and the person he has to sell the hardest is himself.

Re: “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night: not your usual Iranian vampire Western

Iranian Vampire Spaghetti Western, to quibble a bit.

I liked the movie, but thought it was a victory of style over substance in the end. The film is gorgeous to look at, and the characters all seem to have potentially interesting backstories, but rather than fleshing those out, as it were, we are left trying to figure out what Hossein and Shaydah's relationship really was about, or about The Girl's transition to vampire.

I am so disappointed to learn it was filmed in Bakersfield, though.

And Elena, your "reviews" read like spam sometimes. And "Fellini, Lynch and even a bit of John Hughes sprinkled through music and dialogues?" No. Not even close. Ennio Marricone? Yeah. Leone? Yeah. But absolutely not Fellini, and certainly not Hughes.
