Don’t Look Up
Don’t Look Up is one of the best and most recent Netflix original movies. Astronomy student Kate Dibiasky and her professor Randall Mindy discover that a comet is hovering on the outskirts of the galaxy. The problem is that it is on a collision course with Earth. As if that was not enough, no one cares about her. It turns out that warning humanity about the deadly threat of Mount Everest’s size creates many awkward situations.
With the help of Dr. Oglethorpe, Kate and Randall storm the media, starting with the office of the carefree President Orléans and her son Jason, who is also her chief of staff, and ending with the optimistic morning show The Daily Rip hosted by Brie and Jack. Only six months until a comet collides with Earth – what does it take to get the world to look up?
The Hand of God
“The Hand of God” is the latest film by Paolo Sorrentino. It is the story of a young Fabietto Schisa, set in the restless Naples of the 1980s. In the film, unexpected moments of joy, such as the arrival of the football legend Diego Maradona, are intertwined with equally unexpected tragedies.
Fate deals the cards, tears and laughter mingle, and the tangle of events shapes Fabietto’s future. Sorrentino returns home to tell his most personal story, wrapped around a couple of themes: fate and family, sports and movies, love and loss.
The Power of the Dog
The year is 1925 and the main characters in this bitter tale of love and forgiveness are two brothers, Phil and George, wealthy Montana ranchers. Phil is a typical loner and predator who lives in harmony with nature and can find a weak point in every person he comes in contact with.
George has more warmth and empathy, as well as purely human decency. No wonder that he marries the charming widow Rose and becomes the stepfather of her son Peter. Phil has a hard time accepting his brother’s decision, especially since he derives perfidious satisfaction from mocking a woman and a boy. And this leads in a straight line to a conflict of values that no one expected.
“Tick, Tick … Boom!” is the story of Jon, a young theater composer who in 1990 earns his living in New York as a waiter, and after work composes a piece that is to become the next hit American musical. Shortly before showing his work to the public for his success, Jon feels more and more pressure: from his girlfriend Susan, who dreams of an artistic life outside of New York, and from his friend Michael, who has abandoned his dreams for financial stability.
In the background, there is the issue of the AIDS epidemic, which is ravaging the artistic environment. The clock is ticking, and Jon faces a dilemma that each of us will have to face one day: what to do with the time that has been given to us?
“Red Notice” is a film that was included in this list not because it is outstanding, but because of the phenomenal Gal Gadot. Specializing in catching unescapable criminals, an FBI agent faces what may be the most difficult task of his career. It is to arrest the infamous art thief, who has probably eluded all law enforcement agencies in the world.
The problem is that a deadly woman is always a few steps ahead of him. So what does our hero do? What someone with his status shouldn’t do – he makes a deal with another famous art thief to put an end to his colleague’s antics together. Will two coercive partners give advice to one clever woman?
