‘The Whistlers’ Review: A Quirky Crime Drama That Echoes Alfred Hitchcock and Guy Ritchie [Cannes]

When even fans of contemporary Romanian cinema describe the films that achieved global appreciation from a wide swath of cineastes, “funny”, “action packed”, and “plot heavy” are not usual talking points. It’s a country that for decades has generated films that are precisely constructed by often being narratively spare, reveling in character beats and the ennui of boredom in works that stretch hours and hours. This “new wave” was embraced by the same fickle arthouse crowd that now just might f...

Parasite review – creepy invasion of the lifestyle snatchers

Bong Joon-ho’s bizarre black comedy about a rich Korean family and a poor one in a modern-day Downtown Abbey situation gets its tendrils in youBong Joon-ho has returned to Cannes with a luxuriously watchable and satirical suspense drama. It runs as purringly smooth as the Mercedes driven by the lead character, played by Korean star Song Kang-ho. Parasite is a bizarre black comedy about social status, aspiration, materialism and the patriarchal family unit, and people who accept the idea of havin...

‘The Climb’ Review: One Part Bro Comedy, One Part ‘Touch of Evil,’ All Hilarious [Cannes]

The Climb begins, as most Sisyphean tasks do, with a schlepp up a hill. Instead of rolling a boulder up like the original myth, here we meet tragic figures of a different kind. Two Americans, a svelte and athletic Mike (writer/director Michael Angelo Covino) and Kyle (co-scribe Kyle Marvin) biking in the mountains of Southern France. In a comically long tracking shot that sets the film’s aesthetic, we soon learn between the huffing while velocipeding that Mike has slept with the fiancé that Ky...

‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Review: Quentin Tarantino Has Made a Profound, Silly, and Sublime Masterwork [Cannes]

It’s more challenging than usual to talk about Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood , without spoiling a lot of the power of the film. It’s a work that generates much of its power from surprise, and how it’s willing to diverge from the historical record in ways some may find daring and others disturbing. After all, the Manson murders were real, the events took place and no film, as broad or as manic as this one, can in anyway erase that fact. Yet in three glorious ho...

A Starbucks Cup, 2 Water Bottles & Dany's Style — All The Things That GoT Got Wrong In The End

Fact: Game of Thrones fans are not happy. Aside from the petition demanding a rewrite (of which, Sophie Turner's not too thrilled), Twitter is blowing up with GoT -related grievances. Shit first hit the fan when viewers noticed a not-so-sly Starbucks cup. Oops. Then there were the water bottles spotted at the feet of Westeros's most highly ranked lords and ladies. Oops.

‘The Lighthouse’ Review: Robert Pattinson and the Director of ‘The Witch’ Explore Maritime Madness and Mayhem [Cannes]

Robert Eggers smashed onto the indie scene with his 2015 Sundance hit The Witch . A highly stylized, theatrical film with dialogue drawn from the 17 th century and a diabolic edge, the film made ten times its budget and garnered carte blanche for his follow up film. In the interim, iconic actor Willem Dafoe approached Eggers and said he’s do anything the director wrote. Thus was born The Lighthouse , an acerbic, haunting film of maritime madness and mayhem. Shot in black and white ...
