Touch

The film, “Touch,” is by the Icelandic director Baltasar Kormákur and it is about a broad subject matter over many years, across different countries, continents and cultures; thus memory, ageing, loss and love constitute its themes. However, this has an exquisitely tender sensibility like a butterfly wing beating. Kristófer (Egill Ólafsson) is a widowed old …

Sisi & I

First things first, we have definitely had a feature Sisi & I film on the Empress Elisabeth of Austria, known to most people as Sisi, not too long ago. This was Marie Kreutzer’s film titled “Corsage” (2022), which starred Vicky Krieps who never really smiled and always looked serious throughout the movie to suit her …

June Zero

When it comes to the Holocaust or Israel’s creation, there is no lack of films. But rarely do you witness these two areas being so intensely interwoven as in “June Zero.” It may be a unique idea to put all that in an anthology of interlinked short movies. American filmmaker Jake Paltrow (brother of actress …

Kalki 2898 – AD

Nothing original or very surprising about Kalki 2898 AD, a highly polished, expensively shot but not particularly original Telugu-language Indian sci-fi adventure. This big-budget fantasy film draws from elements of the Mahabharata and American science fiction like Star Wars and Mad Max, making it reminiscent of other recent Indian spectacles such as Brahmastra Part One, …

Daddio

The dialogue lies, but the faces do not. Faces tell stories. This takes a lot of trust by a director to let this happen, leaving most of the acting to be done by faces only.”Daddio,” a film about faces written and directed by Christy Hall, is quite amazing considering it is a two-character piece with …

Space Cadet 

The elevator pitch is almost audible: Blonde Legally Blonde in Space Cadet , a highly underrated airhead who doesn’t dress or talk like snobs with golden resumes but demonstrate that she has the right stuff. Then perhaps a little bit of “Kingsman,” for some action, and voila. Rex here is played by Emma Roberts and …

Kill

Definitely, a theater would be the greatest place to catch “Kill,” an Indian action film set on a train to New Delhi. It was directed by Nikhil Nagesh Bhat, with fight scenes brilliantly choreographed by Se-yeong Oh and Parvez Sheikh (“Fighter,” “War”), and captured on film by Rafey Mehmood. However, despite its threadbare plot and …

Last Summer

In Last Summer Léa Drucker is a fashionable woman who lives in France, her house having been built in the far suburbs of Paris and she has a taste for neutral colors that are always adequately blended. As such there seems to be no way to get into it from the outside. She doesn’t know …
