Island Spirits by Martin McDonagh (2022)
On Disney+, Mediaset Infinity, Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, Rakuten TV
In a rural village on an Irish island, about a hundred years ago. A civil war rages in the distance. Colm (Brendan Gleeson) and Padraic (Colin Farrell) were lifelong friends. One day, the first tells the second that he is no longer going to talk to him and that his former friend will have to do the same. The second asks for an explanation, but the other does not seem to listen to the arguments. Indeed, despite his insistence, Colm makes it clear to Padraic that if he continues to talk to him, he will cut off his finger on his hand with every word addressed to him. Soon it will move from words to deeds …
Funny, eccentric, exciting and poetic work. A metaphor (never a “manifesto”) of the promiscuity of hatred. Martin McDonagh (Three billboards in Ebbing, Missouri) explores once again the beauty, ugliness and dark folds of the “human beast”.
Volpi Cup Colin Farrell at the Venice Film Festival and Osella for Best Screenplay. Nine Oscar nominations and no awards.
Maigret by Patrice Leconte (2022)
On Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Rakuten TV, Google Play, eventive.org
Paris, 1950s. Inspector Maigret (Gerard Depardieu) is busy investigating the murder of an unnamed girl. Apparently, the young woman died from a series of stab wounds. No element allows her to be identified, neither her past nor her possible motive. In his research, the commissioner stumbles upon a young offender who closely resembles the victim in face and appearance. The meeting turns out to be the first step towards the truth, but it also awakens personal traumas from Maigret’s past…
From a novel Maigret and the Dead Girl (ed. Adelphi). Patricia Leconte (The Man from the Train) creates an essential and powerful work, like a story about Georges Simenon. There is a slow and growing development in the film, like a heavy and tired inspector in the center of the scene. Extraordinary Depardieu in one of his best recent interpretations. He often plays with alcohol-clouded eyes (Maigre’s indulgence in this tale in which he quits smoking).
Do not miss.

After Kenneth BranaghBelfast) and Steven Spielberg (Fabelmans), an autobiographical account of the director’s childhood James Gray (Little Odessa, hosts of the night). Unlike the other two authors, Gray is not talking about “cinematic shocks” and cinephiles, but rather about his personal life preparation. In America, where Ronald Reagan is about to take office (next year), the distinction between rich and poor is getting more and more dire.
An American filmmaker manages to capture the faces, environments, identity and injustices of 1980s USA in a magnificent digital camera. An era that has affected our present …

A horror reimagining of classic cinema – not just musicals – of the past. From Stanley Donen’s Technicolor Cinema Wizard of Ozto the western wild trails by Ford. One of the most interesting, imaginative and imaginative films of 2022. Good, graceful and disturbing my goth as the main character.
