A disturbing dissection of the current state of the Western society. Why is it so difficult for people to face reality? How did politics become what it is today? The movie doesn’t give answers but stimulates thinking in a fun way. Only if you like and are able to understand satire.
Director: Adam McKay
Cast: Cate Blanchet, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep and Jonah Hill
It’s a delicious comedy about fighting the incompetent. Matthau is a field CIA agent who gets transferred to a desk job by his incompetent boss. As revenge, he starts writing his memories exposing how the security services really work and how the incompetent take wrong decisions for the despair of his boss. Glenda Jackson is wonderful as his girlfriend and accomplice.
Director: Ronald Neame
Cinematography: Arthur Ibbetson and Brian W. Roy
Cast: Walter Matthau, Glenda Jackson, Sam Waterston, Ned Beatty, Herbert Lom
The world is so beautiful, but also so sad. One has to find happiness in small things. The movie is about the life and work of the Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado, who has spent forty years documenting deprived societies in hidden corners of the world, including Africa and Latin America.
Directed by Wim Wenders and Juliano Ribeiro Salgado
Written by Wim Wenders, Juliano Ribeiro Salgado and David Rosier
110 minutes (it seems longer, as it is a dense movie).
