Continuation of the great trilogy

George Miller’s first Mad Max thirty-five years ago heralded a renaissance in the Australian film industry and transformed Mel Gibson into a superstar. The place of the gray-haired Gibson was taken by Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, who was shaved like a boy, chases and shoots off heads in the post-apocalyptic desert for a company with him. Miller had been hatching the idea of ​​the fourth film for the last twenty years; the script was written back in the early 2000s, but it only came to fruition in the mid-2010s; however, Fury Road was expected to be the beginning of a new trilogy. Purists, of course, will howl, but judging by the trailers, not for long. May 14, 2020 marks five years since the release of the cult action movie.

 2011 Cannes Film Festival Winner

Jack (Hunter McCracken) was born and raised in a paradise in the 1950s in Texas – a spacious house with a white porch, trees, streams, paved roads, lawn sprinklers twice a day raised a rainbow over the lawns. Using childhood memories as a prism, Malik, with the leisurely pace of a university lecturer (who is in his first profession), formulates through them a universal model of the universe: father and mother quarreling in the kitchen are like yin and yang, civilization and nature, dogma and faith at the same time. A plug-in reportage about the creation of the world with the participation of multi-colored bacteria, cosmic bodies and a pair of charming dinosaurs (it has become a commonplace to compare it with the prologue of “A Space Odyssey”, although if without guile it looks more like the Discovery channel) is the most controversial part of the “Tree” in an aesthetic sense , but at the same time it is a necessary counterpoint that sets off a purely cinematic paradox: “The Tree” is an epic of a cosmic scale, the action of which is most of the time limited to the kitchen and the lawn in front of the house.

Slow Gay Drama About Finding Oneself

Childhood, adolescence and adolescence of Chiron – a black guy from the ghetto district of Miami, who is painfully experiencing his homosexuality. The film is divided into three chapters, in each of which the hero is played by different actors – moreover, Trev ante Rhodes, who got the adult and brutal version of Chiron, in the third act brilliantly plays confusion. Moonlight is an easy target for attacks, the film can easily be accused of the speculative nature of the chosen theme (black gays!), But Barry Jenkins soars above the opportunistic agenda and creates a drama of pauses and innuendo, tectonic inner experiences of the characters, played, however, without strain. As a result, he gets a story about the fact that a person needs light, and not only blue, but also the moonlight – the warmest light, as is known from the film “Life of Adele”.

Richard Linklater’s Outstanding Film – Chronicling a 12-Year Boy Growing Up

A chronicle of the growing up of a little boy (Ellar Coltrane), who is raised by a divorced couple (Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke), and the story of his relationship with his parents. Prior to this, Texas director Richard Linklater had already filmed the novel by Ethan Hawke and Julie Deeply for nine years (the trilogy Before Sunset, Before Dawn and Before Midnight), and then he aimed to cover 12 years in the life of a young man: from first grade to coming of age. The experiment was a success: in “Adolescence” you can feel the real life, because time is capable of what no make-up artist is capable of. For almost three hours we have been observing the transformation of a boy into a man from some intimate and trusting distance, so that by the end of the film all the characters become like family. The film won several prizes at the Berlin Film Festival, Golden Globes and BAFTA (Best Picture), and the incredible Patricia Arquette won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, because her selfless heroine always has children in the foreground.

Facebook founder biography

On October 28, 2003, squeezed Harvard sophomore Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) tried to tell his girlfriend (Rooney Mara) what he wants out of life. The girl immediately dumped him, calling him … AK. Zuckerberg got upset, drank low-alcohol beer, wrote nasty things about the girl in LiveJournal, then hacked the university network and posted portraits of all Harvard students on the Internet. A year later he became a millionaire, after another three – a billionaire. A year later, overlaid with expensive lawyers, the 24-year-old hero will testify through clenched teeth in two lawsuits, the purpose of which is by and large the same as that of a fateful conversation with a girl – to find out if he is all the same or not … The documentary book “Reluctant Billionaires” indicated in the credits as the original source answers this question more or less in the affirmative: Zuckerberg stole the Facebook idea, threw his best friend for money, looked at other people’s photos without asking – in general, he did everything that a twenty-year-old billionaire should do to it was easier for humanity to . Fincher’s film, on the contrary, avoids categorical conclusions, and, it seems, not at all because of the fear of prosecution – his relationship with reality is built thinner and smarter than it would seem possible with such a fried texture.
