Firstborn kingdom come review
“We must move on for the country to go on,” Carmen explains, then trotting out an extra oldie-but-goodie used for waving away historical atrocities: “The past is in the past.” La Llorona knows that sentence is a convenient lie, and knows that viewers probably know it too. The past is always here, sitting right beside us, and so are its ghosts — a concept that Bustamante brilliantly mines for slow-burning dread and a sense of chickens finally coming home to roost. A native of Guatemala who grew up in the mountains and later studied moviemaking in France, the writer-director has said that he makes “activist films in the sense that they show what people don’t want to see,” whether it’s the prejudices faced by the country’s Kaqchikel-speaking Mayan population (2015’s Ixcanul) or its repressive view of homosexuality (2019’s Tremors). Here, he and co-writer Lisandro Sanchez bend the supernatural genre to bring to light … [Read more...] about ‘La Llorona’ Review: Dictatorships, Denial and the Spirits of the Dead
Plot A young Gunjan Saxena (Riva Arora) is sky-struck when she steps in the cockpit for the first time while travelling on a flight. 'Dada, mujhe pilot banna hain', she tells her elder brother who dismisses her ambition and tells her to become an air-hostess instead. Thankfully, Gunjan has a supportive father, Lieutenant Colonel Anup Saxena (Pankaj Tripathi) who understands her romance with planes. … [Read more...] about Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl Movie Review: Janhvi Kapoor’s Film Gives Wings To Your Dreams
And you definitely don’t need a Ph.D in proper Menga Gengar training techniques to get the near-universal appeal of Pikachu, that furry yellow Pokémon who’s so preternaturally cute he can rot your teeth on sight, in a tiny little Sherlock Holmes hat and blessed with Ryan Reynolds’ sense of humor. We’ve all seen Deadpool so we know the Canadian’s tall-snark-and-handsome game is tight; letting him do his wiseacre riffing thing in the form of an adorably mischievous, coffee-addicted li’l guy feels so ideal for the vibe the seven credited writers (let’s assume the actual number of scribes involved is at least twice that) are going for that you wonder which came first concept-wise — making a live-action Pikachu movie or getting the star to voice him. … [Read more...] about ‘Pokemon Detective Pikachu’ Review: Gotta Fan-Service ‘Em All
In his debut as director and screenwriter, actor James D’Arcy (Jarvis the butler in Avengers: Endgame) resorts to familiar soap-opera beats that tend to ring false as the dramedy loses its lightness. A big help is the Tuscan scenery, shot with a poet’s eye by Mike Eley, that even grinding plot mechanics can’t spoil. Neeson plays Robert, a once promising artist who lost the will and talent to create after an accident claimed his wife Raffaella. Preferring the distraction of drink and one-night stands, Robert is no comfort to Jack (Richardson), the son he shut out of his pain and consequently his life nearly 20 years ago. It’s money that pushes Jack, faced with the break up of his marriage, to reach out to his dad. Raffaella has left both an equal share in the Tuscan house and Robert could use the money to buy an art gallery owned by the parents of his ex. But he’s on a deadline and dad is a drag. … [Read more...] about ‘Made in Italy’ Review: Father-Son Bonding, Under the Tuscan Sun
