MOVIE REVIEW: THE KILLING OF A SECRET DEER

  Though shrouded in enigmas, Yorgos Lanthimos’ disturbing new film leaves a simple question lingering in the mind: Why, of all things, is it called “The Killing of a Sacred Deer”?

CRITIQUE DU FILM: INGRID GOES WEST

  Juste comme la série TV Black Mirror de Charlie Brooker, Ingrid Goes West (Matt Spicer, 2017) est un portrait sardonique de l’obsession actuelle par des réseaux sociaux. Son protagoniste, Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) est une fanatique de Instagram qui se nourrit d’illusions d’amitié avec des femmes glamour qu’elle suit. Pleine de ressentiment quand elle […]

ÉCU THROWBACK REVIEW – BOYHOOD
