New Releases: 17th March

BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOUR:

Blue-is-The-Warmest-Color-Poster-HD-WallpaperI’m really struggling with this film. I was really excited about it coming out, really excited by the the stir, adoration and outrage it pulled out of people, and admittedly kind of excited by the notion that this straight man had made this politically bad, very wrong-footed Palm d’Or winning film about two queer women. I tried to not read too much about it – found much of what I did read too right-on, too simplistic, too drooling – went to see it, and sort of loved it. Since then I’ve thought and talked about it quite a lot and now I’m far from positive about the film. I think it’s  largely reprehensible. But, I also think that in certain respects it’s quite powerful and resonant. I sort of like it in spite of myself. Now this is a terribly uninformative, contradictory mess of a blurb for such an easily hyped new release, but you should absolutely watch it (and please come tell me what you think). Then we can talk specifics and I’ll tell you why it sucks and why it doesn’t. The wonderful Eileen Myles realllly hated Blue is the Warmest Colour, and though I do too, I was also really into it.

THE COUNSELLOR:

world-exclusive-new-poster-for-the-counsellor-144467-a-1378966818-470-75Cormac McCarthy’s first original screenplay directed by Ridley Scott. I like how quiet the trailer is, until the bad song starts. The Counsellor is Michael Fassbender, a lawyer who finds himself in over his head when he gets involved in drug trafficking. It looks fairly entertaining, but, as Video City’s Andrei mentioned to me, this kind of material works better in the hands of the Coen brothers (who adapted McCarthy’s No Country for Old Men), than in the cloven hooves of R. Scott. It’s received quite mixed reviews, but the rave ones are enticing; Manohla Dargis of The New York Times noting how  “Mr. McCarthy appears to have never read a screenwriting manual in his life […] That’s a compliment”, and Scott Foundas at Variety drawing a comparison to John Boorman’s Point Blank. Hmm.
