As a lover of all things Marvel, women, and Rachel Weisz, “Black Widow” called to me from the quiet realm of the local AMC theater in Harahan. I just knew that I had to experience this film in a theatrical setting. All in all, I would say that this highly-anticipated film definitely ranks in my favorites from Marvel’s series of films focusing on the backstories of individual characters.

I’ll be honest: going into the film, I wasn’t the biggest fan of Black Widow’s character, and I wasn’t a Scarlett Johansson enthusiast by any means. What I did know was that starring alongside Johansson was the icon of queer films Rachel Weisz, surrounded by the beloved David Harbour and the recent fan favorite Florence Pugh, so they really couldn’t go wrong. Personally, I’m not super picky about the logistics of a film as long as it’s got a great story and is told by a great performance. I like to think that the most successful films are the ones that I immediately want to watch again right as I am finishing the movie, and “Black Widow” is one of those films.

“Black Widow” follows the story of Natasha Romanoff (Johansson), a former spy and member of the Black Widows, and her sister Yelena Belova (Pugh) as they confront their broken past in order to navigate their future. Alongside the sisters is their mellow mother figure Melina Vostokoff (Weisz) and their misunderstood father and ex-big shot, the Red Guardian (Harbour).

The film contained the perfect balance of drama and comedy; it was serious when it needed to be while allowing Pugh and Harbour to break the tension without overdoing the jokes. With the mention of Russian names, you may be wondering where the recently trending Tiktok soundbite of the heartbreaking voice with a Russian accent pleading: “Don’t say that. Please don’t say that. It was real. It was real to me” came from. Well, it came from this movie. All in all, “Black Widow” was a perfectly paced film focusing on the meaning of family and personal redemption.

The one aspect that I thought this film fell short on was the background of Weisz’s character. We see a lot of the Red Guardian throughout the film, which creates his very own subplot and highlights his relationship with himself and with the girls, but we only see Melina at the very beginning, a little in the middle, and towards the very end. “Black Widow” is ultimately Natasha’s story, and the way Melina’s character is revealed in the short segments she is present in gives the audience enough to understand her role in the film. However, I feel that if we were given just a bit more, we would see more of the family dynamic, and her character’s story and essence would feel stronger and more convincing.

Overall, my only real criticism for this film is that Weisz’s character is missing a little something and didn’t quite hit home, but I feel that this film otherwise succeeded in everything it was trying to achieve. There were moments of heartbreak and realization, there were light comical moments, and there were many, many fight sequences. Being a Marvel film, the score supported setting the mood of the scenes, and cinematically, the visuals and sets were stunning.

Watching “Black Widow” is a great way to unwind and clear your mind from the stress of the outside world. The conclusion of the film leaves you with that same satisfying feeling of finishing a great book. I would definitely recommend checking out this film if you haven’t already, and as always, don’t forget to stay for the end credits scene!

Although John Williams is the best-known composer for the Star Wars franchise, Kevin Kiner rivaled and expanded on Williams’ work in The Clone Wars.

The Star Wars saga has some of American cinema’s most iconic music, but 2008’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars rivals and expands on it. John Williams is largely responsible for the celebrated score of the Star Wars films, often using leitmotifs (musical themes for characters and concepts) to express the often intense emotion and drama of the saga. Kevin Kiner, another talented composer uses many of the same strategies as Williams in The Clone Wars, often quoting his work, but making it his own.

Outside of the famous Star Wars main theme and Imperial March, Williams has crafted numerous memorable pieces for the series. A New Hope’s “Wookiee Prisoner – Detention Block Ambush” perfectly depicts the swashbuckling heroics of Luke, Han, and Chewbacca on their mission to rescue Princess Leia. In the prequel trilogy, Williams used the high-intensity “Zam The Assassin and The Chase Through Coruscant” to portray Anakin and Obi-Wan’s frantic pursuit of a bounty hunter, while “Anakin’s Dark Deeds” to evoke the melancholic turmoil and emotional devastation of Anakin’s murders upon becoming Darth Vader.

Williams is most famous for his use of leitmotifs, with the Star Wars main theme representing Luke Skywalker throughout the original trilogy or the Imperial March being used for both Darth Vader and the Empire. In The Clone Wars, Kiner did a phenomenal job of crafting memorable new themes for some of the animated series’ key characters. The most notable of these are for Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex, two original characters who debuted with the 2008 movie and grew beyond The Clone Wars. Kiner also quoted Williams’ work on occasion, bringing new context and his distinctive style to the classic pieces.

The fan-favorite former Jedi padawan Ahsoka debuted in the 2008 film, and Kiner included a hopeful, heroic theme for her. This played throughout The Clone Wars and was included in Star Wars Rebels during Ahsoka’s appearances in season 2. Although Kiner didn’t compose the music for The Mandalorian, his theme for Ahsoka nevertheless appeared in her live-action debut, showing how resonant the composer’s work is throughout the franchise. In season 1 of The Clone Wars, Kiner introduced a theme for Captain Rex and the Clone Troopers. This theme blends mournful, melancholic notes with a heroic military march, a fitting combination for the clone heroes whose existence is rife with tragic irony. Like Ahsoka’s theme, the clone leitmotif reappeared in Rebels season 2, when Rex joins the fledgling Rebel Alliance.

Kiner also made use of recontextualized Williams quotes. In season 1 of The Clone Wars, Kiner reused the bounty hunter chase score for Rex and Cody’s battle with the traitorous Clone Trooper Slick, using the theme to evoke memories of Jango Fett, their template. Kiner frequently used the Imperial March during various moments that foreshadowed Anakin’s turn to the dark side. Perhaps most tragically, Kiner re-used “Anakin’s Dark Deeds” when Rex turns against Ahsoka against his will during Order 66, re-framing the sinister directive as a tragedy for the clones as much as the Jedi. Kiner expanded on the work of Williams, creating new themes for characters who, while not appearing in the saga films, were nevertheless important to the franchise. Kiner’s work is renowned among fans, building on the foundation of the films in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Shutter Island is considered a modern classic for many reasons. For starters, it is a product of Martin Scorsese’s brilliant filmmaking. He isn’t a director who makes psychological thrillers often but when he did, he hit the bullseye. Shutter Island boasts an unforgettable performance by Leonardo Dicaprio in the lead role. Besides DiCaprio, this movie also features a stacked ensemble cast including Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Emily Mortimer, Patricia Clarkson, and Max von Sydow, among many others.

Based on Dennis Lehane’s novel of the same name, the psychological thriller follows the story of U.S Marshal Edward “Teddy” Daniels (DiCaprio) and his partner Chuck Aule (Ruffalo), running an investigation into a psychiatric facility on Shutter Island, where a patient has gone missing. After a series of disturbing events, Teddy realizes that there’s more to the institution than meets the eye.

When Shutter Island was released in 2010, it blew the audience’s mind and became one of the most twisted, nerve-wracking thrillers of the late-aughts, something fans haven’t forgotten to date. With a mind-bending plot, peppered with horrifying moments, it is a heavy watch and yet it’s also thoroughly entertaining. This movie has a haunting vibe that sticks with you, even years after you have seen it. It encourages the audience to get involved and solve the mystery and seek the truth, which can only be a result of masterful filmmaking. So, it’s obvious that fans of Shutter Island would seek something similar. While there are many movies made with similarly intense storytelling and incredible direction, we have a few favorites that are must-watch films, if you like movies that seriously push the limits of your mind. With conspiracies, layered characters, super twisted plotlines, and eerie atmospheres, here are the seven best psychological thrillers like Shutter Island that you cannot miss.

Secret Window

You can never go wrong with a Stephen King story. And when it’s a movie based on his story, you know that it’s going to drive you crazy (in a good way!). 2004’s Secret Window is one such psychological thriller, penetrating and provocative. Directed by David Koepp, the movie features Johnny Depp in the lead role as Mort Rainey, a writer struggling with writer’s block while dealing with his wife’s infidelity.

Things start getting interesting when he retreats to his lakeside cabin and tries to work on his latest novel. A lot of unsavory details from his past comes to light and eventually lead to very disturbing experiences for Mort. The reason Secret Window relates to Shutter Island is that both stories see the protagonist fighting their minds to come to terms with their past and present. Watch it for Stephen King or Johnny Depp; either way, this movie will not disappoint you.

Jacob’s Ladder

The ’90s was an era of very dark, gory, and super-psychological horror thrillers. Jacob’s Ladder is among the top of that list. But be warned, this is not for the weak-hearted. The psychological drama, starring Tim Robbins, Elizabeth Pena, and Danny Aiello, follows the story of Vietnam war veteran Jacob Singer (Robbins) and his PTSD. Singer is haunted by his wartime experiences with frequent hallucinations and struggles to navigate them.

Jacob’s Ladder is a story of a man trapped in his own mind, quite similar to what Shutter Island also explores. But this ’90s thriller does not go much deeper into Singer’s psychology. Instead, it deals with his current state – stuck in a place between reality and his imagination. It’s an underrated movie but very well-made and mind-bending.

A Scanner Darkly

This 2006 adult animation movie covers a lot of genres in one story – psychological thriller, sci-fi, and crime drama. Based on the 1977 eponymous novel by Philip K. Dick, A Scanner Darkly is set in a near-future, dystopic society, where Bob Arctor/Fred (Keanu Reeves), an undercover agent, investigates the drug trade. But soon he gets too invested in his role and gets involved with a new drug in the market that changes everything for him.

Besides Reeves in the lead role, the movie also features Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson, and Winona Ryder. What’s most interesting about this movie is the way it is made. Digitally shot, it used rotoscope animation, which gives it a surreal look that only enhances the bizarreness of the movie. Whether it’s because of the ensemble cast, the distinctive style, or the blend of sci-fi and psychological horror, A Scanner Darkly is a great watch and will leave you with questions, just like Shutter Island did.

Changeling

Directed by Clint Eastwood, this psychological drama thriller has some elements in common with Shutter Island. From the classic noir environment to doubtful perceptions and the protagonist’s questionable state of mind, there’s a lot of puzzles to solve in both. Changeling follows the story of a mother in 1928 Los Angeles whose son gets kidnapped. Though she eventually finds her son with help from the LAPD, there’s a problem: it’s not her son. That’s when things take a dark turn.

The chilling story also explores a woman’s fight against police corruption and a mother’s search for her son’s reality, while dealing with her own trauma. The award-winning movie boasts an ensemble cast led by Angelina Jolie as Christine Collins, along with John Malkovich, Michael Kelly, Jeffrey Donovan, Amy Ryan, and Colm Feore, among others.

Fight Club

Image via 20th Century Fox

Dark, disturbing, and gut-wrenching, Fight Club is based on Chuck Palahniuk’s debut novel of the same name. It would be an understatement to call Fight Club a movie. It is a walk through a man’s mind, making you live his life with him. Starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, it’s a story told by the unnamed Narrator (Norton) – an automobile recall specialist and an insomniac, with a mundane, work-home-work life. And he is frustrated, no doubt. Then he meets Tyler Durden, a soap maker, and things start to change.

The two men become friends and create an underground fight club to unleash all the pent-up anger and anguish they have towards life and society at large. But it’s not as simple as it reads or sounds. Fascinating performances by Norton and Pitt and a shocking revelation at the end will make you want to go back and watch it all over again. The challenge is whether or not you’ll figure out what exactly happened at the end!

Mulholland Drive

Do you like movies that shake you to your core? Then you probably should have watched Mulholland Drive already. The neo-noir mystery thriller directed by David Lynch is surreal, to say the least, and very thought-provoking. It follows the story of Betty Elms (Naomi Watts), who goes to Hollywood with the dream of becoming an actress. Soon, Betty meets Rita (Laura Elena Harring), a car-crash survivor suffering from amnesia, and the two women connect instantly. Betty tries to help Rita find out about her past but her discovery only leads Betty to dark and strange places. There are many reasons why Mulholland Drive and Shutter Island have some shared DNA – identity crisis, escapism, guilt, and truths that would rattle you. But where Mulholland Drive changes lanes is with its dark satire of Hollywood life and the unique female relationship at its heart.

The 2001 thriller film also stars Justin Theroux, Ann Miller, Mark Pellegrino, and Robert Forster. It’s colorful, sexy, feminine, and makes you feel like you are in a bizarre dream. And just a warning: it will make you think twice about your own mind!

Black Swan

Directed by Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan follows the story of Nina (Natalie Portman) who gets the lead role in a production of Swan Lake. But there’s a lot for her to deal with – her bottled-up emotions, her manipulative mother, her career – all of which she must navigate while performing in the role of a lifetime. The Academy Award-winning 2010 movie is like watching a darker version of the Swan Lake ballet. Or is it just the darker side of the life of a ballerina?

Cinematic and poetic, this dark, psychological drama almost blends reality with the story of Swan Lake. But how it relates to Shutter Island, that’s something you’ll have to watch Black Swan to fully understand.

Dick, A Scanner Darkly is set in a near-future, dystopic society, where Bob Arctor/Fred (Keanu Reeves), an undercover agent, investigates the drug trade. But soon he gets too invested in his role and gets involved with a new drug in the market that changes everything for him.

Besides Reeves in the lead role, the movie also features Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson, and Winona Ryder. What’s most interesting about this movie is the way it is made. Digitally shot, it used rotoscope animation, which gives it a surreal look that only enhances the bizarreness of the movie. Whether it’s because of the ensemble cast, the distinctive style, or the blend of sci-fi and psychological horror, A Scanner Darkly is a great watch and will leave you with questions, just like Shutter Island did.

Changeling

Directed by Clint Eastwood, this psychological drama thriller has some elements in common with Shutter Island. From the classic noir environment to doubtful perceptions and the protagonist’s questionable state of mind, there’s a lot of puzzles to solve in both. Changeling follows the story of a mother in 1928 Los Angeles whose son gets kidnapped. Though she eventually finds her son with help from the LAPD, there’s a problem: it’s not her son. That’s when things take a dark turn.

The chilling story also explores a woman’s fight against police corruption and a mother’s search for her son’s reality, while dealing with her own trauma. The award-winning movie boasts an ensemble cast led by Angelina Jolie as Christine Collins, along with John Malkovich, Michael Kelly, Jeffrey Donovan, Amy Ryan, and Colm Feore, among others.

Fight Club

Dark, disturbing, and gut-wrenching, Fight Club is based on Chuck Palahniuk’s debut novel of the same name. It would be an understatement to call Fight Club a movie. It is a walk through a man’s mind, making you live his life with him. Starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, it’s a story told by the unnamed Narrator (Norton) – an automobile recall specialist and an insomniac, with a mundane, work-home-work life. And he is frustrated, no doubt. Then he meets Tyler Durden, a soap maker, and things start to change.

The two men become friends and create an underground fight club to unleash all the pent-up anger and anguish they have towards life and society at large. But it’s not as simple as it reads or sounds. Fascinating performances by Norton and Pitt and a shocking revelation at the end will make you want to go back and watch it all over again. The challenge is whether or not you’ll figure out what exactly happened at the end!

Mulholland Drive

Do you like movies that shake you to your core? Then you probably should have watched Mulholland Drive already. The neo-noir mystery thriller directed by David Lynch is surreal, to say the least, and very thought-provoking. It follows the story of Betty Elms (Naomi Watts), who goes to Hollywood with the dream of becoming an actress. Soon, Betty meets Rita (Laura Elena Harring), a car-crash survivor suffering from amnesia, and the two women connect instantly. Betty tries to help Rita find out about her past but her discovery only leads Betty to dark and strange places. There are many reasons why Mulholland Drive and Shutter Island have some shared DNA – identity crisis, escapism, guilt, and truths that would rattle you. But where Mulholland Drive changes lanes is with its dark satire of Hollywood life and the unique female relationship at its heart.

The 2001 thriller film also stars Justin Theroux, Ann Miller, Mark Pellegrino, and Robert Forster. It’s colorful, sexy, feminine, and makes you feel like you are in a bizarre dream. And just a warning: it will make you think twice about your own mind!

Black Swan

Directed by Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan follows the story of Nina (Natalie Portman) who gets the lead role in a production of Swan Lake. But there’s a lot for her to deal with – her bottled-up emotions, her manipulative mother, her career – all of which she must navigate while performing in the role of a lifetime. The Academy Award-winning 2010 movie is like watching a darker version of the Swan Lake ballet. Or is it just the darker side of the life of a ballerina?

Cinematic and poetic, this dark, psychological drama almost blends reality with the story of Swan Lake. But how it relates to Shutter Island, that’s something you’ll have to watch Black Swan to fully understand.

– Marcello Sannino makes his fiction debut with a film about a woman fighting for her and her daughter’s survival in Naples, moving between precarious jobs and immigrant exploitation

Ivana Lotito in Rose Stone Star

A beautiful, rebellious, proud and tenacious alpha female is at the heart of the first fiction film by documentarian Marcello Sannino (winner of the Special Jury Prize at the Turin Film Festival 2009 with Rope), a tale of life lived on the margins, set between the populous town of Portici and Porta Capuana in Naples, a veritable immigrant hub which Sannino previously explored in his homonymous documentary (Porta Capuana, 2018). Presented in a world premiere in the Voices line-up of the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Rose Stone Star [+see also:

film profile
]
follows in the footsteps of a young woman without resources, hardened by life and struggling for her own survival and that of her daughter, who gets involved in illicit trafficking in an attempt to win respectability and a real place for herself in the world.

(The article continues below – Commercial information)

“I can do anything”, insists Carmela (Ivana Lotito, previously seen in the TV series Gomorrah in the role of Genny Savastano’s wife) whenever she’s asked her about her skills. We see her posing as a model in an art school, issuing false statements on behalf of a corrupt lawyer, stewarding at conferences… The most lucrative activity, however, turns out to be providing speedy residency permits to illegal immigrants living in Naples, with the assistance of certain businessmen who are willing to sign false work contracts. Her mother (Imma Piro) and sister (Valentina Curatoli) disapprove of Carmela’s life-style, as well as the fact that she doesn’t have a husband and isn’t looking for a stable job, not even an underpaid one. But it’s first and foremost her pre-teen daughter Maria (Ludovica Nasti, Lila from the TV series My Brilliant Friend), whose greatest desire is to go to school and study, who refuses to accept this indomitable and somewhat wild mother. Not to mention social services, who are never too far away…

There are no men in this family: have they run off? Have they been killed? Are they in prison? We don’t know. These are women who are forced to get by on their own, each in her own way, without any form of support. And Carmela will also have to deal with “business associates” running off with the cash, eviction proceedings which are already underway and a priest who, having never seen her at mass, refuses to help her out. Even the possibility of selling her own body will become a viable option in the end.

“Carmela uses the few weapons at her disposal in order to survive”, confirms Sannino, who got his inspiration for the film’s protagonist from a woman he actually knew. “It’s what you have to do in a world where the class struggle has been replaced by an internal struggle between those who live on the margins, in a situation of illegality”. The plot, however, is somewhat on the slim side; it has no impact, and Lotito, in the shoes of the tough and brazen main character, is ill-equipped to shoulder the full burden of the film; a few additional nuances in her character would have helped. The storyline, meanwhile, which sees her develop a relationship with the Algerian Tarek (Fabrizio Rongione), is pretty unconvincing. This is a social work which focuses on the individual and her battle. But even though the wholly female perspective is, indeed, interesting the film struggles to elicit empathy for the fate of its protagonist.

Rose Stone Star is produced by Parallelo 41, Bronx Film and PFA Films with Rai Cinema, with the support of the Campania Region. International sales are in the hands of Rai Com.

IIt’s a story about a freak in Hollywood that looks like a weird movie script. But this true story has left Tinseltown wondering how an unknown fringe player duped millions of out-of-town investors in hopes of making money from the rise of streaming platforms like Netflix and HBO.

Last week, Zachary Horowitz, a B-grade movie actor with a zest for the good life, pleaded guilty to one count of securities fraud, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. But beyond the arid legal action of his argument, something else has been learned, although not necessarily new, about the hunger for content and profit in the perennial world capital of the film industry.

Horowitz, who worked under the stage name Zach Avery, claimed to be in the business of researching and licensing Spanish-language movies and television series to Netflix and HBO. But according to the FBI, he actually ran a five-year, multi-million dollar Ponzi scheme that defrauded wealthy private investors of at least $ 227 million.

Like many before him, including notorious Wall Street con artist Bernie Madoff, the scheme was based partly on the criminal’s criminality and partly on the greed of his investors. Like Madoff, Horowitz promised unlikely returns on investment loans.

But there was something else: the indescribable appeal of Hollywood.

It’s an old story, of course, with institutions and individuals hoping to cash in on the film industry and discover, as always, that Hollywood is a small-town industry, even in an age of globalization and multi-billion dollar streaming services. dollars, working on who you know.

Originally from Indiana, Horowitz graduated from the University of Chicago with a degree in psychology and came to Los Angeles. In the 2019 Swagger cover story, the actor said he moved in “just with his dog, some bags and a big dream” and with the support of stylist Mallory Hagedorn, whom he later married.

Horowitz hired an on-duty trainer AND went to the test track. The portions were meager. But he met a potential producer, Julio Hallivis, and they created a company, 1inMM Productions (“One in a Million”) that planned to fund low-budget sci-fi horror movies with plum roles for “Zach Avery.”

He has appeared in several direct films, including Hell is Where the Home Is, The Last Moment of Clarity (2020), White Crow (2018), Hackers And The Devil Below, And Agriculture (2018) with Kate Beckinsale and directed by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

But some conflicting aspects of Howitz’s life as an actor didn’t add up, including a $ 6 million west side mansion with a showroom, gym and 1,000-bottle wine cellar. Fly in a private jet, enjoy expensive cars and a subscription to luxury watches, and high-speed weekend getaways in Las Vegas. In court documents, his former friends said he often bought court seats at Lakers games and once tried to offer the waitress $ 5,000.

“All Hollywood con artists have a personality,” says Alison Hope Weiner, an investigative journalist from Los Angeles. “It is where you can become what you want to be. Horowitz understood the importance of image. It looked good, people can look like they’re flying and it works really well, and that’s how it works.

The scheme began in October 2014, when investment firms began to subscribe a series of six- or 12-month notes with 1inMM Capital. Each ticket was supposed to provide money to 1inMM Capital for the rights to a particular movie.

In one case, the Chicago group loaned $ 1.4 million to buy the rights to an Italian movie, Lucia’s Grace, and resell it to Netflix for distribution in Chile, Argentina, Brazil and dozens of other countries. Investors promised to repay $ 2 million a year later.

To prevent his investors from suspecting something was wrong, Horowitz filed bogus license agreements, as well as bogus distribution agreements with Netflix and HBO, all of which contain fake or fake signatures.

But the scheme began to unravel in 2019 when Horowitz failed to meet investors’ redemption demands and it became clear that his claim of “strong relationships” with streaming platforms was a lie.

Says Brian Michael, a King & Spalding attorney representing three of Horowitz’s friends in Chicago, who alerted the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Horowitz ran a bank through a respected national firm focused on customer service in the entertainment industry, had a major global law firm representing 1inMM, produced a full set of seemingly original documents and communications between 1inMM, HBO and Netflix and had previously repaid millions in loans. On time, Michael adds.

Federal grand jury indicted Horowitz in May of five counts of securities fraud, six counts of wire fraud and two counts of aggravated identity theft. Under a plea deal last week, he admitted to defrauding more than 250 investors: the Chicago trio, along with his parents, grandparents, brothers and in-laws.

Horowitz was arrested at dawn on April 6, when FBI agents raided the home. His wife Mallory soon filed for divorce, saying in court that her husband was “cheating and manipulating me and everyone around him, and that he is not the person I thought he was.”

According to the SEC complaint, to delay payments to investors, primarily Chicago investors, of $ 490 million, Avery “fabricated email communications with HBO representatives, as well as fake collection accounts that allegedly showed available funds. from HBO and Netflix for distribution ”.

Federal District Judge Jean B. Rosenbluth indicting Howitz: “There’s a lot of money missing here.” “His understanding is that the investigation is ongoing,” says Brian Michael.

Perhaps the most interesting question is not how Horowitz succeeded in the scam, but in the more general conditions of the film and television industry. It might not have worked at all if it was connected to work in some coherent way.

But streaming platforms spend billions on content in a battle to increase subscription, and for every White Lotus or The Squid Game, there are thousands of shows, in every language and for every audience, that never reach algorithmic clients. from Netflix or HBO. Facing the page is there to keep people on the platform.

As estimated, Operator spending on the production and licensing of new entertainment content (excluding sports) increased by 16.4% in 2020 to $ 220.2 billion. The Walt Disney Company alone has spent $ 28.6 billion, and total spending on streaming content is expected to exceed a quarter of a billion this year.

“By misleading his victims, Horowitz took advantage of false documents and communications, as well as the fact that these are sophisticated, reputable, high-money platforms that are known in the market for aggressively acquiring content,” says Michael. .

According to Hope Weiner, the scam was based both on people falling in love with Horowitz’s lifestyle pitfalls and ambiguity around the fast-growing streaming platforms, and the few people who understand how it works.

“It’s like a dot-com boom. There is incredible competition between these services, everyone wants to get in and there is a lot of talk about how much money is being made. Perhaps the global nature of the business has made it easier for people to lie, but people also forget that this is a city, “Weiner said. small.

Several years ago, investor Jho Low entered the city with millions linked to the 1MDB sovereign wealth fund scandal in Malaysia. He financed The Wolf of Wall Street, the three-hour epic of misconduct, with Leonardo DiCaprio. The actor and his friends traveled for a double New Year’s Eve in California and then Australia, buying artwork and settling extensively around the city.

But the latest scandal has little to do with Jho Low’s red carpet criminal skill. “Horowitz was dealing with people who weren’t smart,” says Hope Weiner. “Someone from Los Angeles asks, ‘Who is this guy, what did he produce, who knows?’ Well, he’s an actor. So what?'”

But, this is Hollywood, there is always someone looking to cash in on their embarrassment.

Orson Oblowitz, director of Trespassers, a 2018 Malibu horror film in which the actor writhes on a pool deck with a thick dagger in his stomach, told the Los Angeles Times he was unimpressed by the performance of Horowitz, but he hoped the scandal would worship his film. state.

“It’s amazing,” Oblowitz told the newspaper. “This man does not strike me as the brains of criminals. I’m surprised”.

DC has unveiled the first look at their upcoming League of Super-Pets animated movie, which features an absolutely star-studded cast providing the voices of such beloved superhero pet sidekicks as Krypto the Super Dog, Ace the Bat-Hound, and more.

The new footage was unveiled as part of this weekend’s epic DC FanDome event, which boasted announcements and reveals from a number of much-anticipated films, TV shows, and video games — as well as upcoming animated projects.

The voice cast for DC League of Super-Pets is led by Dwayne Johnson as Krypto the Super Dog, whose casting was announced back in May of this year. He’s joined by long-time co-star Kevin Hart as Ace the Bat-Hound and Marc Maron as Lex Luthor, as well as Keanu Reeves, John Krasinski, Vanessa Bayer, Kate McKinnon, Natasha Lyonne, and Diego Luna in currently undisclosed roles.

When Collider spoke to producer Hiram garcia, he effusively praised the upcoming animated movie, saying that League of Super-Pets will be the official big-screen introduction to many characters who have never made an appearance on such a huge project. In Garcia’s words:

“It’s a lot of fun. As a Superman fan and a huge dog lover, having the ability to tell the story of Krypto and Superman is a dream come true! It’s such a charming story and then in addition we get to introduce the league of Super-Pets and all those wonderful characters. We have such an amazing cast of actors, and anytime you can get Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart together doing what they do, you know it’s going to be a big, fun ride for audiences. This is such a huge project that we’ve been working on for a while so we were thrilled when we finally made the announcement.”

DC League of Super-Pets was first announced in July 2018, but moved forward development-wise when Johnson signed onto the project in May of this year. The film is written and directed by Jared Stern (The Lego Batman Movie) and co-directed by Sam Levine, both of whom make their feature directorial debuts. Producers include Stern as well as Garcia, Johnson, Dany garcia, and Patricia Hicks.

DC League of Super-Pets will fly into theaters on May 20, 2022, with a new trailer coming this November. Check out the trailer below:

As it happened before the parenthesis of 2020, these types of events function as the luxury showcase of the guest trends that first premiere the stars and then hit the streets: from the voluptuous curls that triumphed at the Venice Film Festival for which there is a homemade trick that creates them from home, to the ‘midi’ cut with which Penelope Cruz dazzled in the Donostia contest.

Clara Lago’s carded ‘wet look’

The actress is at the Canneseries Festival presenting the Argentine production series Limbo … until I decide in which he gets under the skin of a influence of turbulent past. For the closing of this fourth edition of the contest, Clara has chosen a dress with a metallic round neck and neckline created from three pieces of fabric in different colors. A very special geometric style piece that ends with an equally groundbreaking hairstyle: a ‘wet look’ mane ultra rejuvenating in which the carding of the upper part of the head helps to add centimeters of height, according to the experts, up to 3 without the need for heels.

From the trend, hairdressers highlight its versatility. Of course, no matter how many different versions it allows, there is a non-negotiable detail that Raquel Saiz, from Salón Blue by Raquel Saiz, talks about: “This hairstyle can be achieved with a bob, but also with manes midi or long. Too we can choose how we separate the hair, to the side or in the middle, but the hair always goes behind the ears “. As a consequence of the condition sine qua non From the ‘wet effect’, the earrings are always visible, as demonstrated by the Madrilenian woman with her delicate gold pieces and fan-shaped diamonds.

This 20-year-old German actress who just shot a thriller with John Malkovich called Shattered, has dazzled with its freshness and naturalness at the Canneseries thanks to a pearl gray strapless dress from Dior and makeup that has also been created by the beauty team of the Parisian firm. Like Clara, Lilly has also opted to collect her mane completely back through a wet look special: “If it is very long, we will get two very interesting textures, one wet on the top and another slightly drier on the middle and ends., since we do not concentrate as much product. The key here is to gel and style. To achieve a certain volume at the roots, it is better that the hair is dry before starting, “says Saiz about the technique that achieves a perfect result.

Regarding looks like Krug’s, Inmaculada García, training director of the Menta Beauty Place salons, also highlights the importance of length: “If it is long hair, the wet effect can be created only on the upper part up to the nape of the neck, leaving the rest of the mane wavy but totally dry “. In addition, the expert explains that “The most important thing to create this effect is to choose the right product to help us give that wet look. Depending on the length of the hair we will help ourselves to distribute the product either with a comb or with our hands “.

Over the past few months, Netflix has made sure we don’t have time to get cold: American Vandal, Stranger Things, Mindhunter, Dark, The Punisher. The platform streaming It has bombarded us with one premiere after another. It is something that is appreciated, but at the same time it is a double-edged sword. With so many star series on offer (I have already read “oversupply”, a relative of the overinformation of our times), it is easy for us to miss something good that does not make so much noise. That’s why I want to vindicate Godless: a western miniseries written and directed by Scott Frank that has passed under the radar, without pain or glory in the meantime and so much front-page product, and that is worth it for how it tries to regenerate a classic genre and adapt it to new audiences.

An outdated genre?

Source: celluloidheaven.com

Talking about western means talking about the origins of cinema. An experimental 12-minute short film called The Great Train Robbery, in 1903, it was probably the first approximation. It’s curious. Unlike the other genres, the western was not adapted from literature. It is the only genre that was born in the cinema, and it is something understandable; It is a space that brings together everything that the cinema of attractions was looking for in those days: something exciting with which to hang out, wrapped in the American ideal. Thanks to Stagecoach By John Ford, in 1939, the genre became popular with John Wayne and lived through its golden age for the next twenty years: High Noon (1952), Shane (1953), The Searchers (1956) the The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), for example.

Over the next several decades, directors like Clint Eastwood revitalized that genre with tapes like Unforgiven (1992), but never with the same force. Little by little, save remakes like True Grift (2010) the The Magnificent Seven (2016), the western has been relegated to hybridize with other genres, to become narrative and aesthetic resources. I talk about movies like Gran Torino (2008), Hell or High Water (2016) the Logan (2017). Serially, except for exceptions such as Deadwood (2004) or less brilliant Hell on Wheels (2011), few dare to build a purely western universe, so they also try to disguise it, as in Westworld (2016).

Logan (2017) showing his reference, Shane (1953). Source: geekengladiators.com

What I want to imply, is that the western genre has gradually become a museum piece. The keys of the genre that was born in the cinema have become outdated, so it is easier to synthesize their formal or narrative keys and mask them in other more popular genres. Being set in a historical period of the 19th century, the western is indisputably macho, for example. It is a real turnip field. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a genre that I adore, and you have to see it knowing its context. However, I understand that certain elements can become a barrier not only for creators, producers or distributors, but also for new audiences.

And here it comes in Godless: a purely western miniseries that puts the most classic of the genre on screen, but at the same time cleverly discards certain loopholes that have become outdated. The result is something that does not reinvent anything, but it does adapt the traditional for new audiences.

Godless develops the most classic theme of the genre, revenge, in seven chapters that move around seventy minutes: Frank Griffin, the famous leader of a group of bandits wanted by the authorities, is hunting Roy Goode, a former member of his gang who has betrayed him in his latest looting. Trying to escape, Roy hides on the outskirts of La Belle, New Mexico, a town mostly inhabited by widowed women because of a collapse at the mine where the men worked.

In its premise, you can already appreciate that combination of the classic and the modern. It is a narrative loaded with timeless elements that we have seen in countless films of the genre, but, at the same time, with a very intelligent twist that introduces modern plots. Because Godless is full of bandits terrorizing towns, living room shootings, idyllic romances, conflicts between whites, blacks and natives and great wide shots that would be nice to see in a movie theater. However, it also has a village inhabited by women, and some of those women are not interested in men, or some of those women seek relationships outside of their race.

In those waters it moves Godless, between the classic and the modern, with a slow but never boring rhythm that will appeal to both the most fans of the genre and those who do not know anything about it.

A good cast full of iconic characters

Despite the fact that the revenge arc between Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels) and Roy Goode (Jack O’Conell) is the trigger for the plot, the narrative places more emphasis on the inhabitants of La Belle who are affected by that duel. It is a success because that way there is room to develop a good amount of interesting secondary characters. And the series has no qualms about giving more minutes to those subplots or everyday spaces than to Griffin’s own threat, which is present from the beginning but does not explode until the end.

The first mention deserves that Frank Griffin, played by a Jeff Daniels very forceful. Griffin is a complex villain. He is aware that he is the bad guy, but at the same time he preaches and acts as if he is saving lost causes. His threat is not constructed from paraphernalia; the most frightening thing is the calm and the knowledge that it demonstrates when acting. And it is that threat against the clock, omnipresent from the first chapter, which is one of the main hooks of the series. Griffin is always in our heads, whether he’s on screen or not, and we know he’s getting closer.

Roy Goode, played by Jack O’Connell, he is a more archetypal character. Orphaned and without much chance, he was adopted and rescued by Griffin, who raised him as his own son and introduced him to the band. He is a brilliant gunman who seeks redemption, and you can tell from the first moment that he is trying to flee from a world to which he does not belong. Roy is a protagonist who complies, but does not enthuse. Perhaps because of being a good guy or falling too much in a formula that we know, or perhaps because of the level of the secondary actors that surround him.

Of those supporting actors, I would highlight Mary Agnes (Merrit Wever), Sheriff Bill McNue (Scoot McNairy) and his assistant Whitey Winn (Thomas Brodie –Sangster):

Mary Agnes is the independent woman of the people, the one who is not interested in men or in following the path that society imposes on her; dress as you like, without seeing practical interest in a corset; he does what he wants, like having relationships with other women; if she is bothered too much (once) she does not hesitate to take out the shotgun to make her see reason. Strong on the outside, moderately tender on the inside. Merrit Wever eats the screen and champions those solid female characters that are so little used in the genre, along with Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery).

Bill McNue, brother of Mary Agnes and sheriff of La Belle, is a character with whom it is impossible not to empathize. Due to a blinding illness, he is aware that his glory days are ending. You feel worthless, and the ladies at La Belle have no problem reminding you. His wife is not waiting for him at home, although he does have two children. Hoping to try to do one last thing right, he decides to go after Frank Griffin armed with that pair of eyes that wouldn’t be able to tell a buffalo from a tree. Scoot McNairy achieves that waste, useless, stubborn and honest character.

His assistant, young Whitey Winn, played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster (you may remember him from Game of Thrones), is probably the biggest surprise. Orphan from a young age, he lives in a hovel dirtier than the worst stable, and eats from tuppers that Mary Agnes prepares for you. Skilled with guns but little educated in letters; more untidy than a pig but more loyal than the best horse; respectful, somewhat arrogant and too brave. I insist, you will miss him. The actor embroiders a character that seems written for him.

With a somewhat more typical ending than would be expected but equally satisfying, Scott Frank reminds us that he does not intend to reinvent the genre, but rather to incorporate modern touches to timeless plots, and achieves his purpose in style.

That you will find in Godless: an intelligent western that discards some loopholes of the genre but that continues to make use of all the places and situations that we know; a space where words weigh heavily, loaded with tense situations where glances are fired; a narrative that takes its time to get from point A to B, stopping in the past of the protagonists and developing several unforgettable secondary characters along the way, and that when it reaches its destination, explodes making all the noise possible in a show of shots, filigree and a lot of blood.

Over the past few months, Netflix has made sure we don’t have time to get cold: American Vandal, Stranger Things, Mindhunter, Dark, The Punisher. The platform streaming It has bombarded us with one premiere after another. It is something that is appreciated, but at the same time it is a double-edged sword. With so many star series on offer (I have already read “oversupply”, a relative of the overinformation of our times), it is easy for us to miss something good that does not make so much noise. That’s why I want to vindicate Godless: a western miniseries written and directed by Scott Frank that has passed under the radar, without pain or glory in the meantime and so much front-page product, and that is worth it for how it tries to regenerate a classic genre and adapt it to new audiences.

An outdated genre?

Talking about western means talking about the origins of cinema. An experimental 12-minute short film called The Great Train Robbery, in 1903, it was probably the first approximation. It’s curious. Unlike the other genres, the western was not adapted from literature. It is the only genre that was born in the cinema, and it is something understandable; It is a space that brings together everything that the cinema of attractions was looking for in those days: something exciting with which to hang out, wrapped in the American ideal. Thanks to Stagecoach By John Ford, in 1939, the genre became popular with John Wayne and lived through its golden age for the next twenty years: High Noon (1952), Shane (1953), The Searchers (1956) the The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), for example.

Over the next several decades, directors like Clint Eastwood revitalized that genre with tapes like Unforgiven (1992), but never with the same force. Little by little, save remakes like True Grift (2010) the The Magnificent Seven (2016), the western has been relegated to hybridize with other genres, to become narrative and aesthetic resources. I talk about movies like Gran Torino (2008), Hell or High Water (2016) the Logan (2017). Serially, except for exceptions such as Deadwood (2004) or less brilliant Hell on Wheels (2011), few dare to build a purely western universe, so they also try to disguise it, as in Westworld (2016).

What I want to imply, is that the western genre has gradually become a museum piece. The keys of the genre that was born in the cinema have become outdated, so it is easier to synthesize their formal or narrative keys and mask them in other more popular genres. Being set in a historical period of the 19th century, the western is indisputably macho, for example. It is a real turnip field. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a genre that I adore, and you have to see it knowing its context. However, I understand that certain elements can become a barrier not only for creators, producers or distributors, but also for new audiences.

And here it comes in Godless: a purely western miniseries that puts the most classic of the genre on screen, but at the same time cleverly discards certain loopholes that have become outdated.
