THE DEATH OF STALIN UK. 2018. Directed by Armando Iannucci. (106 mins.) Rated R.
From start to finish, THE DEATH OF STALIN delivers an audacious, insightful and ridiculously hilarious sendup reminiscent of MONTY PYTHON or DR. STRANGELOVE!
"Mordant in the extreme, and often hilarious, The Death of Stalin somehow manages to acknowledge the murderous depths of Stalin's regime while rising to the level of incisive, even invigorating, political satire." - Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
In this acerbic, side-splitting send-up of the Soviet dictator and the bootlick Ministers who vie for power after his sudden demise, IN THE LOOP director Armando Iannucci sends a not-so subtle message that Joseph Stalin and his inner circle were a bunch of scheming, self-serving schmucks who wound up at the helm of a Cold War. After Stalin is found belly-up on the floor of his office following a stroke in spring of 1953, there is a plotting and jostling for control by the cluster of clumsy connivers who had cowered under his command. All of the top lackeys are in contention — milquetoast Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), wiseguy Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), bewildered Molotov (Michael Palin), thuggish Zhukov (Jason Isaacs) and depraved Beria (Simon Russell Beale). THE DEATH OF STALIN is a tart, timely, scabrously funny farce about unscrupulous, unfit leaders that make a mockery of government.
ISLE OF DOGS United States. 2017. Directed by Wes Anderson. (101 mins.) Rated PG-13.
with Bill Murray, Bob Balaban, Bryan Cranston, Courtney B. Vance, Edward Norton, F. Murray Abraham, Fisher Stevens, Frances McDormand, Greta Gerwig, Harvey Keitel, Jeff Goldblum, Kara Hayward, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton
ISLE OF DOGS, the winsomely charming tale from cinema auteur Wes Anderson, is an immensely imaginative tribute to dogs and a poignant political fable!
"FOUR STARS! With the dark and enchanting animated parable 'Isle of Dogs,' Wes Anderson raises his little personal world to new, finely detailed heights." - Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
Creating a whimsical, meticulously detailed stop-motion animated universe which functions according to its own unique realities and laws, director Wes Anderson (GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS, MOONRISE KINGDOM) delivers a uniquely clever, quirky, creative tale filled with canine adoration. ISLE OF DOGS tells the story of 12 year-old Atari Kobayashi’s epic journey to Trash Island after all the dogs from Megasaki City are exiled. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends (voiced by Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Murray and Bob Balaban), he sets off in search of his beloved pooch, Spot. Populated by wonderfully waggish characters, it is a delightfully visual feast that cunningly thumbs its nose at the absurdity of a power-hungry government.
FINDING YOUR FEET UK. 2018. Directed by Richard Loncraine. (111 mins.) Rated PG-13.
FINDING YOUR FEET, with its heart on its sleeve, a twinkle in its toes and with enchanting performances from a remarkable cast, is truly the feel-good film of the year!
"The cast unlocks moments that are so intimate and naturally detailed, you would swear that the actors had no idea the cameras were rolling." - Scott Marks, San Diego Reader
Filled with grand, old British charm and a sterling cast, director Richard Loncraine (5 FLIGHTS UP) crafts a hysterically heartwarming romantic comedy about self-discovery and starting over. When Lady Sandra Abbot discovers that her husband of 40 years is having an affair with her best friend, she packs her designer bags and flees to the shabby flat of her estranged, bohemian sister. It is here that a colorful, motley group of friends and neighbors attempt to coax Sandra out of her shell and teach her that it’s never too late to change and grow and grab a new lease on life. FINDING YOUR FEET will have you dancing in the aisles!
THE LEISURE SEEKER United States/Italy/France. 2018. Directed by Paolo Virzi. (112 mins.) Rated R.
Golden Globe Nominee!
Best Actress - Helen Mirren
THE LEISURE SEEKER is a beautifully told story full of compassion, grace, tenderness and humanity with outstanding performances from veteran actors Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland!
"The main reason to see The Leisure Seeker is the same reason Mirren chose to make it: her character, she has said, 'is not someone withdrawing from life. This is someone rushing headlong into life.'" - Tim Apello
Oscar winner Helen Mirren and two-time Golden-Globe winner Donald Sutherland absolutely shine in THE LEISURE SEEKER, a rewarding tale about embracing life at any age. John (Sutherland), a retired English professor whose memory is deteriorating, lights up whenever he looks at Ella (Mirren), his devoted, firecracker of a wife. Foregoing the concerns of their doctors and grown children, the pair impulsively run away on an adventurous whirlwind, cross-country escapade. Experiencing equal moments of elation and frustration, the pair weave their way down the East Coast in their beloved vintage Winnebago, rekindling their passion for life and their affection for one another in a journey full of humor and heartbreak.
