ABOUT 

 

 

One Night in Miami

by

Regina King

One night in Miami

 

Regina King’s first film is a hit.

The meeting of these four characters supposed to celebrate the victory of Cassius Clay in a hotel room gives place, as it is the room of Malcolm X, to a debate on the cause of African Americans, their struggle and the means employed. 

Sam Cooke is accused by Malcolm X of giving up  his talent for the benefit of whites instead of singing for the cause (this is before the song A change is gonna come), Jim Brown is about to leave the NFL to make movies (he is still alive) and played in “The Dozen Dirty”, Cassius Clay and Sam Cooke declare to have loved Kennedy..

The debate, rich, obviously and unfortunately topical, puts the question of commitment back at the heart of the debate. 

This film, almost theatrical, remarkably acted (we also find the charismatic Lance Reddick, the chief of police in the Harry Bosh police series), is superbly directed.

The great jazzman Terence Blanchard (composer of all the scores of Spike Lee’s films) composed the music and the voice of Leslie Odom Jr., the actor-singer who plays Sam Cooke is sumptuous. 

 

In the end

Sam Cooke was murdered at the age of thirty-three in circumstances never elucidated, Malcolm X in 1965, he was only thirty-nine years old.

Mohamed Ali was imprisoned for not wanting to participate in the Vietnam War.

As for Jim Brown, he is 88 years old.

Wandavision

 Created by

 Matt Shakman & Kevin Feige

your movies and series

 

If you have seen Bewitched by Sol Saks with Elizabeth Montgomery and Dick York, and you liked this style of humor then you will love Wandavision. 

The story is about a witch, Wanda Maximoff, (red witch in Marvel) married to a man who is none other than a robot superhero, Vision. But of course he changes his appearance when he goes to work.

The sketches are in the same vein of Bewitched  but a mystery hovers in this suburb.The characters evolve in a black and white setting and Wanda perceives color at times. 

Funny, this light-hearted series is easy to watch. I was a little embarrassed by the laughter recorded at the beginning but it is quickly forgotten. 

Produced by Marvel Studios, we are expecting discoveries in the next episodes (there are 9 in all). 

Both actors are sensational.  

Currently on Disney+ (9 episodes) – Every Friday at 9. A.M

With Elisabeth Olsen et Paul Bettany

Mystery Road

 by

Ivan Sen

your movies and series

 

Mystery Road was created in 2018, and follows two feature films by Ivan Sen, Mystery Road and Goldstone.

An Aboriginal detective, Jay Swan, is in charge of solving investigations in the Australian desert. 

Performed by Aaron Pedersen, (the same film/series actor), Mystery Road is the quintessence of a detective series: we discover the Australian landscape, the history of the Aborigines and their painful past and a mix of western and film noir that reminds us of Tony Hillerman‘s novels (where this time the vigilante is a Navajo Indian).

Jay Swan is a “black” detective and suffers racism from white people and from his own people who consider him a traitor.

But he is a determined, violent man, ready to do anything to discover the truth and render justice. 

The first season directed by Rachel Perkins will be broadcast this Thursday evening on Arte.

Jay Swan investigates the disappearance of two young ranch workers, a white man and an Aboriginal man.

Sent as a backup in a town where a woman is in charge of the police station, Emma James, played by Judy Davis (the extraordinary nurse Betsy Bucket from Ratched, a series on Netflix directed by Ryan Murphy, spinoff from One flew over the cuckoo’s nest . This sensational actress steals the show from Aaron Pedersen. 

She had three Emmy Awards, two Golden Globes and an Oscar nomination for A Passage to India. 

She also played Judy Garland in Life of Judy Garland, Me and my shadows for which she received a Golden Globe.

To know everything about it.

This original CANAL + series tells the story of Didier Mathure, played by Melvil Poupaud, a French space engineer who is asked to lead a secret group in charge of UFOs, the Gépan, a group that really existed and was created in 1977.

Anthony Cordier directed the twelve episodes of this zany series, obviously a tribute to Steven Spielberg’s Encounters of the Third Kind.
But there are many others and I can’t tell you about them without spoiling the series.

Multi-referenced, this hilarious, well-written and brilliantly acted series is a must-see.

The end is incredible !
