ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT CURRENT FILMS & SERIES

IN THEATERS AND AT HOME

 

James Bond, No Time to Die, by Cary Foji Fukunaga

Synopsis

 

In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

James Bond

Created in 1953 by the writer and former British spy Ian Fleming in the novel Casino Royale, following his meeting with Dušan Popov.

No Time To Die

Co-written and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga

stars Daniel Craig as James Bond for the fifth and final time

Screenplay: Cary Joji Fukunaga, Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Music: Hans Zimmer

Theme song: No Time to Die performed by Billie Eilish, orchestral arrangements by Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley

With Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch , Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz, Ben Whishaw , Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright , Ana de Armas

Review

Danny Boyle and John Hodge had started to work initially on the film. Then Cary Fukunaga took over because Daniel Craig didn’t like the story. Paul Haggis who worked on Casino Royale was hired and then fired. Finally it is the version of Scott Z. Burns and Cary Fukunaga who will be kept.

In spite of the beginnings faithful to the saga, No Time To Die is finally a sub-James Bond.

Daniel Craig, who couldn’t stand this macho and impassive character, wanted to be given some emotion. But the result looks like water and oil, the mixture does not take. The film is reminiscent of the Taken saga where Liam Neeson, tough and emotional, goes after the bad guys who kidnapped his child.

We get a little martini, a little chase and mostly a lot of boredom. 

The only one who gets away with it is of course Rami Malek (Mr. Robot, Bohemian Rhapsody) who is still extraordinary.

 

Phoebe Waller-Bridge

The only good idea of Daniel Craig is to have chosen Phoebe Waller-Bridge (creator and actress of Fleabag) to make the female characters stronger.

And the actress we remember is obviously not Lea Seydoux but Ana de Armas (seen in Blade Runner 2049 and Knives Out (nurse Marta Cabrera earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy), in the role of a beautiful and funny James Bond girl (that recognizable Phoebe Waller-Bridge humor). 

But there too a false bickering between the new 007 and James Bond makes the saga sad and banal, the dialogues are of a distressing poverty.

With James Bond, we expect dreams, extraordinary stunts, and an imaginary James Bond. By wanting him to be real, Daniel Craig killed him. For good.

James Bond places to visit

Deceit, by Emilia di Girolamo

Synopsis

Based on the true story of a controversial undercover operation conducted by the Metropolitan Police in 1992. 

Five months after the murder of Rachel Nickell, the police are still unable to catch the suspected killer they have identified. 

In desperation, they turn in a colleague who has a history of infiltrating the criminal underworld and agrees to act as sex bait for the killer.

 

The series

During four episodes, we discover with amazement how far the police were able to go in the indecency and disrespect of women to find the main suspect, Colin Stagg, and guilty of the murder of Rachel Nickell.

The investigation begins with exchanges of letters to trap the alleged killer who has violent sexual fantasies. Difficult to hear, Lizzie has to answer them by getting caught up in the game. But the letters don’t work. She must then meet him “in real life”.

The series, written by Emilia di Girolamo, denounces the actions of the investigators and shows the life of a woman who is almost alone in this world of policemen who deliver an investigator into the hands of a suspected killer only to prove that they are right.

Niamh Algar (MotherFatherSon, Raised by wolves, Pure) is extraordinary in the role of this woman who wants to be strong but in reality is scared to death. And so are we.

Chilling and strong.

With Niamh Algar, Eddie Marsan, Sion Daniel Young, Harry Treadaway.

Killing Eve, by Phoebe Waller-Bridge

SYNOPSIS

The series is an adaptation of the literary series Codename Villanelle by Luke Jennings

Eve Polastri is an MI-5 agent in charge of investigating and arresting the terrible and talented Villanelle, a psychopathic assassin. But the two women start to become obsessed with each other. A dark game of cat and mouse begins.

 

THE SERIES

Written by the famous Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, and writer of the female characters in the last James Bond movie No Time to Die), this detective series is a pretext to talk about women, whether they are killers or investigators.

Very funny, often sarcastic and with the deadpan humor of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Killing Eve shatters all the prejudices we can have about women.

Jodie Comer in the role of the killer is sensational and Sandra Oh (seen in The Chair on Netflix, recently) is always right in this role of investigator who is bored in her couple.

The awards

Golden Globes 2019: Best actress in a drama series for Sandra Oh.

Emmy Awards 2019 : Best actress for Jodie Comer
