Paris, 13th District

0 0
Read Time:18 Second

Jacques Audiard’s dramatic romcom has passion, laughs, and real tears. “Paris, 13th District” is about one man and three women. Unlike “The Other Woman,” it’s not dumb or degrading or miserable. It’s a smart and often whimsical French comedy with the kind of spark that Noah Baumbach or Whit Stillman would enjoy. Matter of fact, […]

Messy sketchy satire from France “Bloody Oranges”

0 0
Read Time:20 Second

A satire of interconnected vignettes — sketches — tied together in a loopy, bloody-minded State of France farce of a story, “Bloody Oranges” won’t be to most tastes. Discerning its meaning and what the filmmaker and his uninhibited, Comedie Francaise-spangled cast had it mind for their “targets” isn’t always obvious. But if you’re down for […]

Horror and social media (or the technological world of pop culture) have intertwined for many years now. Go back to the days where television was the big picture – “sucking the souls” of the viewer.
