THE cocooning is in order, here is what the Crave platform offers you.
The world of Barbie imagined by Gerwig is simply fantastic. The aesthetic is splendid, everything is beautiful, smooth… and pink! The ingenious attention to detail is its great strength. We often burst out laughing when discovering how the director (helped with the script by her partner Noah Baumbach) brought to screen this world which only exists in the imagination of millions of children. The film garnered eight Oscar nominations.
My mother’s men
My mother’s men turns out to be a mastered and touching work. A beautiful film (the photo direction and staging are frankly successful), full of music (the soundtrack features Nick Cave as much as Mara Tremblay), which displays its artistic ambitions without ever taking itself for an esthete film . Which we certainly won’t blame him for. Maryse Latendresse and Anik Jean enter the world of cinema through the front door with this film.
Decision to Leave
Admirers of Park Chan-wook’s cinema will find here the singular vision of a filmmaker who, once again, offers a visually splendid work, set with sumptuous framing.
Thanks to this film, filmmaker Blandine Lenoir not only recalls the details of a struggle that women had to wage at arm’s length, but she also very convincingly takes us back into the spirit of an era.
Spider-Man – Across the Spider-Verse
It’s rare that the second part of a trilogy is superior to the first. The Empire Strikes Back, Terminator 2, The Winter Soldier. Maybe The Godfather Part II. We can add Across the Spider-Verse to this list.
Philou by Phil Roy
The gags flow throughout Philou at a rapid pace, except during very brief interludes during which the comedian gives the spectators time to fully appreciate what he has just said. The irony will escape no one: his first show was called Sirbut it is with his second solo that Phil Roy truly becomes one.
Talk to Me
The rumor emanating from Sundance was true. Talk to Me, by twins Danny and Michael Philippou, is one of the most disturbing works of the year, diving into the very heart of horror. It’s hard not to come away haunted.
Martin Gignac, special collaboration
The time of a summer
Yes, it’s a slow film. Contemplative. And that’s perfect. The time of a summer is not a talky film either. Dialogues are never free. And silences often speak volumes. The film also reminds us at times The great seduction (Jean-François Pouliot), through his foray into the region, as well as Nomadland ( Chloé Zhao), through her intimate portrait of the lives of the less fortunate. And even if the finale is as improbable as the preamble, we get caught up in believing it. And to dream about it… the time of a viewing.
A respectable woman
The direction of the actors is very precise. As Rose, Hélène Florent seems to wear a veil of sadness on her face throughout the story, except during brief moments of joy with the little girls. The actress is remarkable. His partner, Martin Dubreuil, is also true and touching in the role of the dark and clumsy husband, but with a good background, as they say.
