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 […]

Movie Review: The Killing of a Chinese Bookie

  The Killing of a Chinese Bookie is an American film directed by John Cassavetes from 1976. As a crime film, this one stands out from its genre.

Spanglish

 Français Movies have tried to explain upper-middle class domestic suffocation for a while. Sam Mendes’ American Beauty and the hit prime time TV series Desperate Housewives are a few of Hollywood’s projects that well-captured a portrait of what it meant to be comfortable and bored.
