The weekend is close, and that implies that you might have a chilled weekend, and also new films for you to see.
However, which is a perfect requirement watch, and are there any you ought to maintain a strategic distance from?
- “You could go see “Hardcore Henry” — or you could gulp down a pint of vodka, load in “Grand Theft Auto,” then strap the TV to your face and throw yourself down the stairs.” – nydailynews.
- “Billed as the first-ever action movie filmed entirely from the hero’s first-person viewpoint, Hardcore blasts along like a supercharged computer-game shoot-em-up, bursting with sick humor and splatterpunk violence.” – Hollywood Reporter.
#HardcoreHenry is a movie you watch when you’re too lazy to play POV video games… I didn’t say that was a bad thing.

- “It all sounds terribly murky, but few filmmakers are as gifted at making you want to peer through the murk.” – Boston Globe.
- “What started with a gripping premise slackens and goes limp.” – Globe and Mail.

- “A sympathetic, inquisitive portrait of the immigrant experience in Europe.” – Time Out.
- “Though it takes a jarring left turn at the end, this bears the same immaculate plot construction and tonal consistency of Audiard’s previous films, augmented by sensitive, superlative performances from Jesuthasan and Srinivasan.” – Chicago Reader.
There’s a new French/Sri-Lankan film coming out called Dheepan, and the title just makes me think of pizza. 🍕

My name is Emily
- “There’s a poetry to My Name is Emily. Not just in the words – it permeates the imagery and music as well. That should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Simon Fitzmaurice’s work – his short films won all around them, lauded as lyrical and beautiful. His stream-of-consciousness film-making evokes a response on myriad levels.” – JayConnors.
Just after coming from My Name Is Emily screens in #ADIFF16. WHOA – What a movie. Coming out in April I believe. Go see it.
