ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT
Inception, Interstellar, Mémento, Dunkerque…All the movies directed by Christopher Nolan are cult today. He is the best directif of the Batman, he directed the best actors and aged 50, has already his name in front of the TCL Chinese Theater. His movies brought 4,7 billions of dollars worldwide. He writes almost of his scripts with his brother Jonathan. He saw Star Wars when he was seven and decided at that time to shoot movies. And it is as an autodidact that he learns cinema. His wife, Emma Thomas, whom he met at university, produces all his films.
His stories are about time manipulation, time inversion, distorted memories…The British actor Michael Caine plays in almost all his films, including his latest one, Tenet.
He is an fierce defender of cinema and refused to let his film be released directly on platforms, as was the case for many of them because of the Covid.
His cult films can all be seen on the platforms:
– On Canal+ :
- Insomnia, (2002) with Al Pacino ,Robin Williams, Hilary Swank…
- Le Prestige, (2006),with Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Scarlett Johansson, Michael Caine et David Bowie

WHAT TO STREAM NOW
A young and gifted driver, Baby, is forced to participate in robberies to pay off his debts. One more robbery and he is free. Baby is not a young man like the others, a victim of tinnitus, he listens to music all the time. One evening, he meets a young waitress named Debora. But the last robbery must take place the next day…
Directed by Edgar Wright, Baby Driver has been a worldwide success in 2017, with 217 millions of dollars worldwide.
Its original script, its casting, and a fast and furious direction make this film a total success.
The clever mix of genres, between thriller, romantic comedy, and musical comedy contribute to give the film a dynamism that is totally in line with spectacular car chases, which I’m not usually a fan of.
Ansel Elgort plays perfectly, as well as Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Jamie Foxx. Even when it is exaggerated, it doe not matter. On the contrary, it enhances the comedic part of the movie.
The score is amazing, with great tunes by Queen, The Commodores and Jon Spencer Blues. La musique a été réalisée par Steven Price, compositeur de la musique marquante de Gravity, d’Alfonso Cuaron.
With Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx
