Movie Review – The Hummingbird Project (2018)

The Hummingbird Project, 2018.

Directed by Kim Nguyen.

Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Alexander Skarsgård, Salma Hayek, Michael Mando, Sarah Goldberg, Frank Shorpion, Johan Heldenbergh, and Kwasi Songui.

Synopsis:

Vincent Zaleski (Jesse Eisenberg) and his cousin, Anton Zaleski (Alexander Skarsgård) leave their jobs as high-frequency traders to lay a fibre-optic line across America that could make them millions.

Although at times it might lull the audience into a sense of ‘based on a true story’, The Hummingbird Project is surprisingly a work of fiction written by the film’s director, Kim Nguyen. Maybe it’s the social political commentary, or that it deals with trading and finance in a way that both The Wolf of Wall Street and The Social Network looked at in their own unique visions. If DiCaprio’s riotous Jordan Belfort was at the top of the money-making chain, the Zaleski cousins are somewhere near the bottom. As the pair

‘The Kleptocrats’ Review: Dirs. Sam Hobkinson & Havana Marking (2019) [Sydney]

The Kleptocrats Review: A case of life imitating art and art imitating life in this gripping documentary about Malaysia’s 1Mdb scandal and the Oscar-nominated film at its centre.

If you have watched Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street and/or downloaded music tracks owned by Emi publishing – think Queen, Calvin Harris, Drake just to name a few – you have inadvertently contributed money to the world’s largest white-collar heist ever uncovered. A scam so pervasive that it spans from its origin in the highest echelon of the Malaysian government to international money laundering endeavours on the other side of the world.

The film begins at Red Granite’s Cannes Lions World Wide Event Management launch party in 2011, where celebrities such as Leo DiCaprio and Pharrell Williams watch on as Kanye West and Jamie Fox belt out their hit Gold Digger to an eager crowd. As one reporter states

Sundance London 2019 Review – Animals

Animals, 2019.

Directed by Sophie Hyde

Starring Holliday Grainger, Alia Shawkat, Fra Fee, Dermot Murphy and Amy Molloy.

Synopsis:

Resisting the building urge to grow up, 30 year old Laura rockets between her old party animal lifestyle and her newly found, more mature, love affair.

Laura and her flatmate Tyler live from one night out to the next, barely making it out of bed in between. They are presumably the “Animals” from the title of Sophie Hyde’s film. But with the realisation that the last 10 years have been spent in this manner, and with nothing concrete to show for it, Laura begins to worry about the direction her life appears to be taking. Change brings new romance and conflict with Tyler, but you know what people say about what happens the more that things change?

From the off, Animals sets up two characters that seem so easy to fall into step with.

The Wolf Of Wall Street: 10 Quotes We Can All Relate To

Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street is a darkly comic crime epic that tells the true story of stockbroker Jordan Belfort’s rise to power and fall from grace. While the movie opened to positive reviews, it was criticized by some viewers who felt that it glamorized Belfort’s white-collar criminal lifestyle.

It took a while, but Paramount Pictures, Martin Scorsese's Sikelia Productions and Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way Productions have finally prevailed in a defamation lawsuit over Wolf of Wall Street brought by former Stratton Oakmont general counsel Andrew Greene. A summary judgment on Thursday takes up the issue of issue of "libel in fiction" and what plaintiffs need to show in dealing with movies that are based on real events but also dramatized.

The case has been pending for more than four years, after Greene sued over the Scorsese-directed movie about the rise and somewhat fall of Jordan Belfort, convicted ...

Matthew McConaughey ‘Making Noises’ Supercut May Be the Best Thing You See All Day (Video)
Matthew McConaughey is essentially a human soundboard.

The actor’s verbal habits and smooth, sibilant ‘s’s have produced many impersonations. However, without uttering a word, McConaughey’s voice is recognizable even through his grunts, laughs and guttural hums.

YouTube channel “Owenergy” has collected clips of the actor just “making noises,” and mashed them together into a video totaling more than 10 glorious minutes of the actor. From his low, gravelly hums to his wailing screams, McConaughey showcases his vocal range beyond his signature catchphrase “Alright, alright alright” — of which the YouTuber has also created a compilation.

Movie Review – Sorry to Bother You (2018)

Sorry to Bother You, 2018.

Starring Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Jermaine Fowler, Steven Yeun, Armie Hammer, Danny Glover, David Cross, Terry Crews, Omari Hardwick, Michael X. Sommers, Kate Berlant, Robert Longstreet, Lily James, Patton Oswalt, Rosario Dawson, Shelley Mitchell, and Forest Whitaker.

Synopsis:

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe.

If Sorry to Bother You feels like a music video/concept album approach to peering into a wide variety of relevant themes ranging from race relations, the underclass of America (specifically centered on minorities), bottomless corporate greed, the juxtaposition between fruitlessly creating meaningful art and working an unsavory but lucrative job, some rather inhumane treatment of working-class citizens, and a whole lot more, all with a scattershot approach that yields varying levels of effectiveness and success, it’s due

Patrick Melrose Review

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Four years removed from his award-worthy turn as Alan Turing in Morten Tyldum’s The Imitation Game, and finally, Benedict Cumberbatch has made the laborious journey back to meaningful acting. With three McU appearances during the interim, Cumberbatch, who has said that his only two bucket list roles are Hamlet and Patrick Melrose, having fulfilled the former in 2015, gives perhaps his strongest performance to date as the titular drug addict.

Written by David Nicholls (Starter for 10), with Edward Berger (The Terror) at the helm, Showtime and Sky Atlantic’s five-part miniseries, Patrick Melrose, adapted from the semi-autobiographical novels penned by Edward St. Aubyn, is a harrowing, if not familiar diamorphine-driven drama elevated through distressingly believable thespianism.

Each chapter of Patrick Melrose is formed around a single entry in Aubyn’s roman à clef anthology, comprised of Never Mind, Bad News, Some Hope,

Doc NYC Review: ‘Maddman: The Steve Madden Story’ is a Lively Look at the Man Behind the Shoe

Functioning in the mode of a lifestyle documentary like Dogtown and Z-Boys, Ben Patterson’s Maddman: The Steve Madden Story tells the sweeping take the shoe impresario, a self-made man who started from the bottom as a shoe salesman, worked his way to the top, fell from grace, and came back leading his Long Island City-based design house. It’s a lively, energetic story that only occasionally veers into that documentary gray area called Branded Content. In the opening random shoppers are asked, “What do you know about Steve Madden?,” and evidently nobody knows much about the man.

Told through interviews with Madden, his brother John, his ex-wife Wendy, and several key employees, many from the old days relay the story of how a fashion brand with one SoHo store grew into a billion dollar business. After a modest success with his signature Marilyn shoe, his company goes public via
