if you want THE HOTTEST NEW TITLES

THE KILLER

Vincent Georgie: The Master of Precision director David Fincher returns with a cool-looking, cold-hearted and immaculately made crime thriller. You will marvel at the impeccable craftsmanship on display. Michael Fassbender is at his most enigmatic here. 

Synopsis: Solitary, cold, methodical and unencumbered by scruples or regrets, a killer waits in the shadows, watching for his next target. Yet, the longer he waits, the more he thinks he’s losing his mind, if not his cool.

Available on Netflix.

if you want TO BE INSPIRED

NYAD

Vincent Georgie: Anchored by award-worthy performances from Annette Bening and Jodie Foster, this film is a thrillingly dramatic debut from the makers of the Oscar-winning doc Free Solo. You will be happy you checked this one out. 

Synopsis: Sixty-four-year-old marathon swimmer Diana Nyad attempts to become the first person ever to swim from Cuba to Florida.

Available on Netflix.

if you ENJOY A TRUE CRIME CAPER

VJERAN TOMIC: THE SPIDER-MAN OF PARIS

Vincent Georgie: Take a chance on this entertaining snapshot of an infamous art thief. An under-the-radar film that is most interesting. 

Synopsis: In his own words, the burglar behind the 2010 robbery of the Paris Museum of Modern Art tells how he pulled off the biggest art heist in French history.

Available on Netflix.

DOUBLE FEATURE

THE GREAT JAMES L. BROOKS

He gave us both the Oscar-winning film Terms of Endearment and the TV classic “The Simpsons”. And somewhere along the way, he cornered the market in funny, intelligent, humane dramedies that showcase very appealing ensembles. Both of these films are high watermarks for smart, enjoyable entertainment. 

BROADCAST NEWS

Intelligent satire of American television news. A highly-strung news producer finds herself strangely attracted to a vapid anchorman even though she loathes everything he personifies. To make matters worse, her best friend, a talented but not particularly telegenic news reporter, is secretly in love with her.

Available on iTunes, Disney+, YouTube, Crave and Amazon Prime.

AS GOOD AS IT GETS

Melvin Udall (Jack Nicholson) is an obsessive-compulsive writer of romantic fiction who’s rude to everyone he meets, including his gay neighbour Simon (Greg Kinnear), but when he has to look after Simon’s dog, he begins to soften and, if still not completely over his problems, finds he can conduct a relationship with the only waitress (Helen Hunt) at the local diner who’ll serve him.

Available on iTunes, Amazon Prime and YouTube.
