The Toronto Film Festival is over (I’m writing one today) and the Vancouver International Film Festival starts next Thursday. I suggest the opening video. crow bone, is required. I mean, I want to see a powerful, accurate, and angry movie about the history of our shameful boarding school. The film, by Marie Clements, shows one woman’s experiences from childhood to old age, up until her meeting with an indigenous leader visiting Ottawa and the Pope. The film will also premiere on her August 4th.

Environmental Films, History of Protests in the United States, Best Director Award at Cannes (Decision to move out), Brendan Fraser whaleVicky Krieps as Sisi, the tragic Empress of Austria, and even Gérard Depardieu as the detective Maigret.

Notice the Vancouver movie called. return to homeIt was variety. They had a feature on notable directors. It has its world premiere on Friday and will be rerun on October 2nd, with my grandson playing a key role.

Also note that Avatar I’m back in the theater. The James Cameron-directed blockbuster chronicles a heroic battle to save civilization, and in this context serves as a warm-up for the long-awaited sequel due out in December.

Meanwhile, here is…

Riceboy Sleep: 4

Bandit: 3 ½

blonde: Marilyn Monroe continues to captivate and Ana de Armas plays her brilliantly. she channels her She gets her insecurities and her showbiz style exactly right. But the movie doesn’t go well. It paints her forever as a victim. She was, but not always. She had a rough childhood (her mother even tried to drown her), didn’t know who her father was, and was abused by her Hollywood bosses (a rape early in the film set the tone). That’s according to this film based on the famous novel by Joyce Carol Oates.

Monroe is portrayed as completely alienated from the blonde sex symbol character the public sees. She marries a baseball hero (Bobby Cannavale as Joe DiMaggio), then she marries a literary star (Adrien Brody as Arthur Miller). With him she can show that she’s not a stupid blonde, but the movie doesn’t follow suit with what she’s done, everything that could support the victim angle is unfortunately lacking She has attended her threesome with her two named sons in Hollywood. I don’t know how true it is and how cruel the consequences are. It is the most influential, but excessive. Written and directed by Andrew Dominick, he is known for portraying real people from wacky angles. He took it too far here. (Select a theater now, Netflix next week) 3 out of 5

darling don’t worry: Harry Styles is the big draw in this piece, but it’s actually a Florence Pugh movie. Until you think better and ask what it is? It won’t tell you, and you have to fill it in yourself. Enjoy your style until then.

Harry and Florence play a married couple in a planned community in the desert. This is a suburb, as depicted in many films of the 50’s and his 60’s. Men drive to work in the morning, and women cook, clean and serve drinks. There is an organizer, played by Chris Pine, who holds meetings to celebrate their life virtues. There’s no hint of “chaos,” he calls it, “pure unlimited potential.” He is modeled after Canadian lifestyle guru Jordan Peterson. This place is part of something called ‘The Victory Project’ which was never defined and to the community he claims one woman is built on lies and domination. It drives Florence’s character, asking questions and doing things that are forbidden. She goes outside the community to a mysterious building on top of a hill, and you do well in her search. She and Pine are very effective and Stiles is good enough. (In Theater) 3/5

eternal spring: Canada’s pick to send to the Oscars is a must. The story is not ours, but was made here by director Jason Loftus. about the efforts of “Falun Gong is great,” says many protest signs in the film, and is also the message broadcast by the group when it hijacked national television one night 20 years ago. The film details how they planned it. But the oppression that befell them proved that they had great influence.

Based on the work and memories of comic artist Daxiong, the story is told in a hybrid way, much of it with vivid animation. When he recounts what happened, it plays like a heist movie and a thriller. . He fled China (to New York and Toronto), and it was later when he reunited with one of the key participants known as Mr. White that he changed his mind. They talk about characters like Liang, who came up with the idea, and Big Truck, who brought the muscles. The film doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about Falun Gong, but it relates very well to this one incident of his.

rice boy sleep: This is one of the most authentic depictions of the immigrant experience I have ever seen. It’s not about any culture that I know of, but the impact it has proves this: The film’s portrayal is universal. Big important events, learning languages, job searches, job achievements. But we also experience small daily difficulties. A Korean boy in this story is stuck in an answer in class and has a name that other children find strange, so he has to choose a simpler name. In a typical scene, he was teased by other children for the strange food his mother sent him for lunch. Writer-director Anthony Shim draws his own life in South Korea and Vancouver into the reality he portrays. He won an award at the Toronto Film Festival recognizing “a bold directorial vision.”

In the film, Choi Seung-yoon is a single mother from South Korea who currently lives near Vancouver with her son. He was played by Do-hyun Noel Hwang as a boy and later by Ethan Hwang as a teenager. He dies with blonde hair, smokes drugs with his best friend (played by the director), and asks embarrassing questions like why he doesn’t have a father. It’s a delicate story from home in Korea. Joined by a medical story here in Canada, her mother decided her upstart son needed to connect with his past, so she took him to South Korea to meet her grandparents. increase. Emotional flare-ups before they go. There’s a genetic connection there, and it made for a very satisfying film. (at his VIFF tonight and Monday, at festivals in Calgary and Sudbury soon, and in theaters next year) 4/5

bandit: A refreshing romp perfect for summer is still here. Taken from a novel, but lighthearted and possibly true. Josh Duhamel plays a newspaper criminal called The Flying Bandit because he flew across Canada to rob a bank. His talent was his charming personality and strict protocol at the counter. At least as Canadian director Alan Unger has spun it, there’s a cheeky, almost comic tone to it when he pulls off a heist.

Gilbert Galvan Jr. escaped from a prison in Michigan, came to Canada, met a woman (Elisha Cuthbert) from a church shelter in Ottawa, and occasionally took off on bank trips. Though visually unconvincing, there’s an extended sequence in which she claims she’s in Vancouver, and she hates banks, so he’s okay with his robbery. One took her family’s home. He becomes greedy and approaches a loan shark (Mel Gibson) for help with a bigger job. The police follow in his footsteps and the film proceeds to a classic “last job” situation. This movie is full of details, but it’s still a bit of a story. But fun. (select theaters) 3 ½ out of 5
