“Dune”, Directed by Denis Villeneuve, USA, Canada, Hungary, 2021 (18+)

The most anticipated film of the recent Venice International Film Festival is already in the box office. The fans of the genre began to wait for the release of the new film adaptation of the science fiction novel by Frank Herbert in 2016, when news broke that director Denis Villeneuve was negotiating with one of the American studios. He managed to release the films “Arrival” and “Blade Runner 2049”, while working on the script for “Dune” with Eric Roth and John Spates. After it became known that Timothy Chalamet will play the main role in the upcoming science fiction film, his fans joined the ranks of those waiting for the release of the film.

Chalamet plays in Dune by Paul Atreides, son of Duke Leto Atreides (Oscar Isaac), ruler of the dangerous planet Arrakis, which because of its desolation is called Dune. Arrakis is nothing but melange – in the universe of the film (and the underlying novel, written in 1965), this name hides an extremely expensive substance that prolongs life, helps move at the speed of light and radically improves thinking. Duke Leto knows that his appointment is a trap, but he still goes to Arrakis, taking with him his son, wife of Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson) and those close to him. Tough trials await them: the previous ruler of the planet, the insidious Vladimir Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgard), does not want to leave his post.

This film should not be missed by fans of Leonard Cohen – its plot, mood and image of the main character are based on the songs of the Canadian poet and musician. In the original, the film is named after the 1977 album Death of a Lady’s Man (literally “Death of a Ladies Man”).

The ladies’ man here is University Professor Samuel (Gabriel Byrne), an aging man with an alcohol addiction. Having cheated on his wife all his life, one day he finds out that she too is unfaithful to him, and this fact makes him a little sober. Later, Samuel learns that he is terminally ill – he has brain cancer. He rethinks a life lived at random, regrets a lot, tries to correct the mistakes of the past. And he succeeds in something, despite the fact that the mind is gradually filled with bizarre hallucinations – it seems to the hero that the hockey field is turning upside down, then he sees the ghost of his father, then the monster of Frankenstein, then the woman with the head of a tiger.

Matt Bissonnet’s drama (he also wrote the script) premiered in September 2020 at the Calgary International Film Festival.

This film mixes truth and fiction, documentary and script, comedy and horror. Annie Clarke, aka St. Vincent, in the role of herself, brings stereotyped ideas about celebrities in general and about herself in particular to the point of absurdity.

The film begins with a scene in which the star collides with a man who does not recognize her. Well, Clarke decides to tell everyone who she is by filming a documentary about herself. The singer invites Carrie Brownstein, director, actress and her best friend, to lead the process. What seemed like a great idea at first turns out to be a failure – it turns out that the beautiful St. Vincent becomes just Annie, the most boring person and far from the most interesting hero for the movie. Predictably, the girlfriends quarrel, and then a real nightmare begins.

The long history of the five Macaluso sisters – Maria, Pinucci, Leah, Katya and Antonella – begins in childhood. The girls live together in an apartment on the outskirts of Palermo, completely alone, without parents. They dream of a better life, love the sea and want to see it every day from the window. One day, while the rest of the sisters are spending time on the beach, Antonella tragically dies. This death violates the harmony that existed in the family. Until old age, the survivors will not be able to come to terms with the death of their sister and will think about what happened that day.

The events of the melodrama cover the childhood, youth and old age of the Macaluso sisters – they are played by three cast of actresses of different ages. At the 2020 Venice International Film Festival, all actresses received the Pasinetti Prize, presented by Italian film critics. The film itself was also awarded the Pasinetti Prize for Best Picture.

“The Secret of the Macaluso Sisters” was shot by the famous Italian theater director and playwright Emma Dante based on her play of the same name, full of grotesque humor. As Dante herself says, whose childhood was spent in Palermo, the plot grew out of a story she once heard about one Palermo old woman who woke up in the middle of the night and could not understand whether she was alive or had already died.

“Silence of the Lambs”, Directed by Jonathan Demme, USA, 1990, 18+

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the premiere of one of the most famous thrillers, which won five Oscars and a Silver Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival. The years that have passed have not made it any less impressive. This can be seen from today – “The Silence of the Lambs” is released in Russia. For many, this will be the first opportunity to see a film on the big screen – in the 1990s in our country it could only be watched on a VCR.

FBI cadet Clarissa Starling (Jodie Foster) is forced to communicate with a life sentence cannibal killer, former psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins). FBI agents actually began to practice such conversations since the 1970s, when a terrible rampant of serial killers began in the United States. One of those who helped criminologists to better understand the psychology of criminals was the maniac Ted Bundy. Real conversations with him formed the basis of the film script.

The FBI turns to Lecter because he is the only one who can assist in the investigation of a series of mysterious murders of women. The doctor, slippery as a snake, is not the most sympathetic interlocutor. For help in drawing up a psychological portrait of the killer, he asks Clarissa to become his patient – during dates, tell him, as his psychoanalyst, about the strongest experiences of childhood, relationship with his father and fears.

Working on the image of his hero, Anthony Hopkins studied a lot of materials about the famous serial killers of America, as well as the leader of the bloody cult, Charles Manson, who pushed his followers to brutal murders. While watching videos of Manson’s interview, the actor noticed that he did not blink, and used this feature during filming. Hopkins’ unblinking gaze, combined with a gentle smile, is perhaps one of the most terrifying details in the film.
