The decides with the prosecution of the two suspects charged Detective (Chadwick Boseman) to block until five o'clock in the morning all the bridges to / from Manhattan.

This dramatic narrowing is the great strength of the film: A nocturnal Hatz under time pressure, on a game field, which decreases rapidly claustrophobic. If the end of the movie, a new day dawns, revealing the "21 Bridges" unfortunately, however, as a too streamlined police film. (foe)

The mountain chain (which means "cordillera") of the Andes takes up 80 percent of Chile's surface. But earlier he had ignored them, says Director Patricio Guzmán. It is only Chile's history has interested since the presidency of Allende and the coup by Pinochet. Now, however, Guzman turns to the mountains as a Symbol of imperturbability.

The images from the Andes are breathtakingly beautiful -- in contrast to the recordings from the Chilean everyday life, made by the documentary filmmaker Pablo Salas since the eighties, part of which is under danger to life. The contrast of these images worlds guzmán's lives-winning Film, thanks to which, you will understand why Chileans go today on the street. (bod)

The Good Liar

Thriller from Bill Condon, USA, 2019; 110 min.

Betty (Helen Mirren) and Roy (Ian McKellen) learn about a Dating platform for older people. A first Meeting will follow soon. However, Roy is a ruthless fraudster, who has it in for Betty's savings.

Mirren and McKellen are a terrific occupation. Particularly McKellen shines in a role in which he can be extremely charming, but also completely obnoxious to be. The story can't quite compete – Director Bill Condon and screenwriter Jeffrey Hatcher ("Mr. Holmes") obviously had difficulties to adapt to the specific narrative structure of Nicholas Searle's novel for the cinema.

From a true story has made Scafaria a lesson about capitalism: All must sell what is available to you. "Hustlers" is a kind of female Version of a Heist movie, and not a Casino or a Bank, but the exploitative System is cracked. The magic of the film arises from the study of intense-woman relationships. (msw)

His supervisor is a son of a bitch (Willem Dafoe), who bullied him to the hilt. As the detachment fails and the two get stuck on the island, happened more and more strange things.

The expressionist, black-and-white images are beautifully disturbing, and Pattinson not reflected't so bad in addition to the outstanding Dafoe. Only The more the two figures, the madness, the more sheer randomness is out of the surreal Horror. Finally, if a mermaid POPs up, this is hardly a shrug value. (ggs)

Something very introspective, and sometimes a explains the Director of the Off things that would be self-understood. But she also has a exciting perspective, beautiful images, and amazing this is, perhaps, As in the city of Zurich, the Appenzell appears to be a similar foreign like the Chinese Hinterland. (ggs)
