Drama Movies Newsletter 1/7/17
This week's newsletter contains additional info about actor Stellan Skarsgard and his film "In Order of Disappearance". I also preview the 2017 Golden Globe Awards.
In Order of Disappearance Film Review
A typical revenge thriller is the cinematic equivalent of fast food: comforting, predictable, and instantly forgettable. “In Order of Disappearance”, a violent winter tale set amidst endless expanses of white, is more substantial fare.
Sunrise Film Review
As a child, filmmaker Partho Sen-Gupta was the victim of an attempted kidnapping. He explores the subject of missing children and the devastating effects on their parents in his rain-soaked, neo-noir film "Sunrise".
The Measure of a Man Film Review
Vincent Lindon excels in his role as an unemployed factory worker trying to maintain his dignity. Lindon earned two major awards for this film, Best Actor at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and Best Actor at the 2016 French Cesar Awards.
The Last King Film Review
A 13th century tale with biblical overtones, "The Last King" is actually based on true events that are commemorated in Norway even today. Two loyal soldiers brave the elements and enemy forces as they protect Norway's child heir to the throne.
The Meddler Film Review
Susan Sarandon plays Marnie Minervini, a warmhearted widow who decides to make an adult daughter living in Los Angeles her new hobby. Writer-director Lorene Scafaria scores with this life-affirming film based on her own experiences.
Downstairs Film Review
"Downstairs" proves that silent star John Gilbert had the ability to adjust to the new sound medium and the cynical zeitgeist of Depression-era America. A conniving chauffeur profits by exploiting women both financially and sexually in this 1932 film.
Hunt for the Wilderpeople Film Review
A misunderstood 13-year-old foster child finds love and acceptance in this comedic gem from Down Under. Written and directed by Taika Waititi, this sleeper hit is the biggest box office success from New Zealand to date.
Rams Film Review
"Rams", set in a remote corner of Iceland, transcends cultural boundaries as it tells the story of two estranged brothers who spend forty years living side-by-side without speaking.
