BEATRIZ AY DINNER – review
"Destroy life is easy, but maintain it…"
The film Beatriz at Dinner is a magic trip. What the director Miguel Arteta makes is a one way trip into place where you realize life itself. Arteta previous works are not as ambitious as Beatriz at Dinner is. Starting from what is serve for dinner you will end very satisfied.

The movie is a plane and simple meal. However, the work delivered from the cast is as hilarious as breathe-taking. Salma Hayer plays the main character Beatriz. Biggest moment in the film: Salma Hayer can sing! John Lithgow is the “bad” guy. The trans-parents Jay Duplass and Amy Landecker are working together. Also, two actors part of American Horror Story, Connie Britton and Chloë Sevigny. Part of the cast already had work before, and the chemistry is a proving fact.
The dark humor in the film is deliciously serve for all. Duplass and Landecker coming from a comedy (Transparent) that touch all types of comedy make all the ingredients cook to the point where you can enjoy it even do it’s dark comedy and a little soul-taste.

Hayer’s character fits her well, however, I want to see her taking risks.
“Snow and Silence”
Let’s be honest the director Taylor Sheridan knows how make a savage but full of true feeling films. This time he did again! Coming from two big and powerful hits, Sicario (2015) and Hell or Hight Water (2016), where both films where claimed at the Oscar… Sheridan knows how to play right within chance to loose.
Watch Wind River – Official trailer
Wind River is an ambitious breath taking. A eighteen-year old girl is found frozen in Wyoming’s Wind River reservation by the wildlife agent Cory Lambert. Lambert ask for help to solve this scene which looks like a murder crime. Jane Banner an FBI agent is sent for help. But, the low temperatures make Banner’s work looks basic. Lambert and Banner team up to “track” the scene.
In a small cold town where everybody know everything and everything is far, old ghost are hunting feelings of the present.

Wind River has a super duo. The main characters are portrayed by Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen. Renner’s work is just brilliant. He delivers a cold but joyful interpretation. Also, Olsen plays a friendly work. See these two out of their characters of superheroes (Avengers) is a lemonade in summertime. They bring the chemistry they already have made on Avengers. Well play by Sheridan.

Sheridan knows how create horror scenes into an amazing landscape of possibilities. The recreation of the murder scene is a landscape where you could get lost. The twist. The twist Sheridan makes is something we should consider as a great work. Also, how the director portrays the actual situation of Native Americans.
A new James Bond Rises
I was not expecting to go and watch this Atomic Blonde. Atomic Blonde was my second option for the night. But, as people always say, “when you aren’t expecting nothing… life surprises you the most”. This time the director David Leitch, Charlize Theron, and an amazing soundtrack made it all the work.
To watch Atomic Blonde trailer
The movie is devised on three parts: the beginning, a present where teh British agent is narrating what happened on the begging, and the end.

While Berlin is battling the Cold War on his on land for freedom, another war is taking part on the underground, an atomic blonde is feeling Bond, James Bond. A savage blonde agent part of the British secret service is sent to Berlin to get some information that is precious for the British.
Beside you may think by the effects at the beginning of the movie… Atomic Blonde starts high: well and strong acts server with rough soundtracks. There isn’t a low nor slow acst. All the characters work together to keep the audience entertained (a thing that many directors and writers forget) the whole 140 minutes.
Theron makes an powerful work-group with James McAvoy (which early this year gave us a major performance on Split) and Sofia Boutella. Theron’s script is savage and smart. The action scene are full adrenaline and blood. Rough blood. Also, McAvoy’s work as a mean sexy Berlin lover is as important as Theron work.

Atomic Blonde is a fancy smart move from the direction. Leitch took risks that are visible (which I thanks) on the direction. Make a combination of thriller, comedy, action, and fashionable is not a easy work. But, Leitch did it!
