bunuel in the labyrinth of the turtles review

“How do you change the world?” It’s a question posed to famous surrealist filmmaker Luis Buñuel by a group of intellectuals debating the merits of art or political action to combat the rising forces of fascism in Europe in the opening scene of Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles. Buñuel, inexplicably wearing a nun habit and a smug smile, doesn’t answer. But he doesn’t need to — his art is what speaks for him. In his lyrical animated film, director Salvador Simó also lets the art speak for itself, painting an earthy, dreamlike portrait of the surrealist filmmaker as he overcomes financial and personal challenges to shoot his 1933 documentary Las Hurdes: Tierra Sin Pan.

falling inn love trailer

If the Netflix formula ain’t broke, then don’t fix it. And there isn’t a movie more built to the formula than the streaming giant’s upcoming romantic-comedy Falling Inn Love. Because get it? They fall in love…at an inn! Of course, there’s more to this Christina Milian-starring rom-com than that: the actress and singer stars as a city girl who moves to New Zealand to renovate an inn…and then she falls in love!

the spy first look

Sacha Baron Cohen is nigh unrecognizable in The Spy, and that’s not just because he’s gone undercover. The actor and comedian is giving a rare serious turn in the upcoming Netflix limited series, which tells the story of Israeli spy Eli Cohen, a distant relative of Baron Cohen. While the resemblance is uncanny, The Spy first look photos released by Netflix show a Baron Cohen who is far removed from the outrageous comedy he is known for.

where'd you go bernadette review

Despite its premise, and the jigsaw puzzle of a novel by Maria Semple upon which it’s based, there isn’t much mystery to Where’d You Go, Bernadette? Based on the 2012 comedy novel of the same name, Where’d You Go, Bernadette? follows a picture-perfect family left reeling when the titular mother, an agoraphobic architect, suddenly goes missing. Semple’s novel is a character mystery, driven by Bernadette’s daughter Bee as she investigate’s her mother’s disappearance.

But as directed and co-written by Richard LinklaterWhere’d You Go, Bernadette? lays it all on the table immediately, embodied by Cate Blanchett‘s zippy, mile-a-minute performance that rips through the film like a tsunami. Subtlety and enigma aren’t in the vocabulary of this film, which sees Linklater shedding his more naturalistic directing style in favor of the broad comedy that characterized his major studio films like School of Rock. But the absurd comedy stylings of Where’d You Go, Bernadetteend up clashing majorly with the film’s more understated themes about the power of artistic expression, resulting in a film that loses itself in the weeds.
