ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW IN JUNE

 

 

June 's films

Nomadland by Chloé Zhao (today in your movie theaters)

 

Review 

 

 

June 's films

 

Playlist, by Nine Antico

 

Synopsis

 

Sophie (Sara Forestier) is a young woman of 26 who dreams of breaking into comics. She accepts a fixed-term contract in a publishing house known for its elitism in order to build a network.

At the same time, on a personal level, her love affairs are getting tangled up and nothing goes as planned with her lovers.

 

The  film

This black and white comedy talks about love, freedom and passion with a quirky humor between Denis Podalydès and Almodovar. 

Sara Forestier and Laetitia Dosch play two free-spirited young women who seek to make a living from their passion, and have unlikely encounters.

Sophie listens to Daniel Johnston, who sings that “True Love will find you in the end” and Nana Mouskouri who sings “Les yeux pour pleurer” composed by Serge Gainsbourg and wanders from man to man without really knowing what she is looking for.

Bertrand Belin’s voice-over reinforces the tragi-comic aspect of Playlist.

This light comedy will make you smile and put you in a good mood if you need it.

It is a real success in this very rich cinematographic season and with The Father, Young Promising Woman, and Nomadland, it is my fourth favorite. 

 

Music by Lispector.

 

To watch and listen since June 2nd in movie theaters

 

 

June 's films

 

Lisey’s Story, by Pablo Larrain

 

Synopsis

Lisey (Julianne Moore) is the widow of a famous writer (Clive Owen) who inspired generations. She is unable to grieve, and constantly delves into her past life with this man, whom she discovers after his death.

She must relearn to live and compose while one of her sisters has suicidal tendencies (she regularly slashes her wrists) and a psychopath seeks to recover her husband’s unpublished writings.

The series

Lisey’s story is a series adapted from the novel by Stephen King and he also participated in the script. For the first time the adaptation is very close to the novel.

The border between real and imaginary almost invisible, madness, the past and the secrets of a couple are all themes dear to the great writer that we find in this series both scary and fascinating directed by Pablo Larrain and produced by J.J. Abrams.

Very polished, very colorful too, red and green are mixed wonderfully, this series plunges us into the atmosphere of Stephen King’s novels. 

Julianne Moore wonderfully embodies this lost woman, tested by grief and who no longer trusts anyone. As for Clive Owen, it is without a doubt one of his greatest roles.

 

The novel

 

Stephen King wrote this story after returning from a month in the hospital with pneumonia.

When he came home, his wife had repainted and transformed his office.

Thinking that this is what the room would look like when he died, he began to reflect on all that his wife, Tabitha, would have to deal with after his passing and wrote this book, dedicating it to her.

The writer would consider this novel to be his best book. Critics have called it his most personal and powerful work.

 

With Julianne Moore, Clive Owen, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Joann Allen, & Dane DeHaan

 

On Apple TV now (two episodes online, one by week, 8 episodes) 

 

 

June 's films

The Outpost, by Rod Lurie

Screenplay by Eric Johnson & Paul Tamasy, adapted from The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor by Jake Tapper

Synopsis

 

2006. In the U.S. Army in Afghanistan, captains come and go at the Kamdesh outpost.

Located at the bottom of a valley, at the mercy of the Taliban, the soldiers are shot at every day.

And three days before the post was to close, 400 Taliban attacked them, even though there were only 53 of them.

 

The film

 

The Outpost is a real war film. It shows the absurdities of the army (like the fact of installing military bases as the first targets of the Taliban) and the “outposts” were removed afterwards, finally recognizing the danger they represented for the soldiers who were supposed to pacify with the Afghans and were an easy target for their enemies.

Directed by Tod Lurie, Israeli-American director, we follow these soldiers in their daily life and in their fight. The director dedicated it to his son Hunter Lorie who died at 28 years old of a heart attack.

Filmed undoubtedly from the shoulder, the film is sadly breathless as these men who were being shot at had little chance of survival.

It is a very good movie, with very good actors including Scott Eastwood, Caleb Landry Jones, Orlando Bloom, available since June 4 on Prime Video.

At a time when the Western coalition is literally abandoning this country to the Taliban, this film also reminds us of the fragility of democratic regimes.

 

To watch now on  Prime Video.

 

 

June 's films

Alex Rider, adapted from Anthony Horowitz’s novel, series created by Guy Bert

 

Synopsis

Alex (Otto Farrant) is resourceful. Raised by his Uncle Ian (Andrew Buchan), he does his best friend, Tom (Brenock O’Connor), every favor he can in high school.

But one night, while returning from a party, he learns that his uncle died, according to the police, in a car accident.

He investigates and discovers that his uncle was an MI6 agent. The MI6 agents realize that Alex is talented and can help them solve Ian’s murder.

Driven by a quest for the truth, Alex must pretend to be a rich and rebellious teenager and spend a few months in a kind of punitive school in the Alps: Point Blanc.

 

The series

Despite a few inconsistencies in the storyline that are easy to live with, Alex Rider is a fast-paced, breathtaking series that hooks us from the very first episode.

The actors are quite good on the whole and the mix between generation loss and espionage is quite good.

The main actor, Otto Farrant is for much in the success of this series.

 

First three episodes are available on Canal Plus and OCS since June 8.

 

 

June 's films

Raya and The Last Dragon, by Don Hall & Carlos López Estrada

 

Synopsis

While the people of the land of Kumandra lived in harmony with the dragons five hundred years ago, a plague turned men into stones and the dragons sacrificed themselves to save the human beings and created a stone that keeps the Drunn away.

From now on, the people are divided into five tribes. Each of them has a piece of a magic stone that keeps the Drunn away.

One of their chiefs, Benja and father of the young Raya, dreams of bringing them all together to live in peace and summons them for a fraternal meal.

But nothing happens as planned…

 

The cartoon

If the first twenty minutes are rather classic, the continuation is quite simply grandiose.

We find all the usual Disney characters but also a tasty mixture of adventure to the Indiana Jones, and Game of Thrones (without the violence) with always in the heart, the friendship, the confidence and this time a real turning point already begun with The Snow Queen, in the female empowerment.

The facial expressions are so real that the acting and the story are strengthened.

Raya and The Last Dragon is funny, moving, and dreamy.

 

Co-directed by Paul Briggs and John Ripa who are making their directorial debut.

Written by Adele Lim and Qui Nguyen from an original story by Paul Briggs, Adele Lim, Kiel Murray, Carlos López Estrada, Dean Wellins, Qui Nguyen, Don Hall and John Ripa.

Raya and The Last Dragon stars Kelly Marie Tran and Awkwafina in the original version.

 

Available since June 4 on DISNEY PLUS

 

 

June 's films

 

Sweet tooth, created by Jim Mickle, series adapted from  Jeff Lemire’s comics.

 

Synopsis

In a future decimated by a virus and where chaos reigns, babies are born, hybrids, half human half animal.

A father takes his son to live isolated in a park to avoid death and experiments.

The little boy dreams of finding his mother.

 

The series

 

Between tale and dystopia, the first two episodes are very successful.

Played by Orville Wills, Nonso Anozie and Christian Convery, Sweet tooth speaks to us of love, tolerance, viruses and cruelty.

So far, thanks to James Brolin’s voiceover, this is the most original series I’ve seen on Netflix in a long time.

 

Since June 4th on Netflix
