Manchester by the Sea – review from Lee Adams

10.2.2017

It was a bitter February afternoon when we laid my great grandmother to rest with her husband who’d died over fifty years earlier. She never remarried or even looked at another man as far as we knew, so we took comfort in the romantic notion that she was finally reunited with the love of her life on Valentine’s Day. Více

Paterson – review from Lee Adams

18.1.2017

Not everyone gets to have their dream job. Those who don’t often keep little passion projects on the go whenever they can, to make something special out of the day and keep the hope alive. You’re reading one of mine – I love to write about movies, and one day I’d like to make a living from it. In Jim Jarmusch’s latest film, Paterson (Adam Driver) is a poet, and fervently jots down his own poems in a notebook whenever he gets a moment. For the rest of the day he is a dutiful bus driver in his hometown of Paterson, N.J., overhearing the conversations of his passengers and watching city life through the windshield of his bus. Více

Nocturnal Animals – review from Lee Adams

6.12.2016

A film about a woman reading a book shouldn’t be as gripping as Nocturnal Animals, but somehow sophomore director Tom Ford pulls it off – until the finale. Ford previously made a living designing fancy togs for Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, and as you’d expect from a film by a former fashion designer, his second feature is dressed to kill. It is artfully composed, beautifully shot, crisply edited, sleekly designed, evocatively scored, and benefits from three superb performances by Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Shannon. And yet for all its expertise, Nocturnal Animals is flawed conceptually, leaving the audience with such a shrug of an ending that it’s hard to grasp why we’re supposed to care about the preceding two hours.

Přízrak z minulosti

3.11.2015

23 oficiálních filmů, 2 neoficiální, 1 televizní film, 12 originálních románů, 2 povídkové sbírky a 40 románů na pokračování od dalších autorů. I po 63 letech své existence James Bond stále ovlivňuje a reflektuje populární kulturu. Tento měsíc se dočkáme již 24. bondovky. V té agentovi s povolením zabíjet, poprvé od roku 1983, pořádně zatopí úhlavní nepřítel Blofeld a jeho slavná zločinecká organizace. Proč ale v bondovkách tak dlouho absentovala?

Doba sdílených filmových vesmírů

6.5.2015

V průběhu poměrně krátké historie kinematografie se v Hollywoodu vystřídalo velké množství narativních, stylistických a produkčních trendů v rámci vysokorozpočtových filmů (blockbusterů). A právě zatím posledním produkčním trendem se budu zabývat v tomto textu. Vítejte ve světě sdílených filmových vesmírů. Více
