5 interesting films from the London Film Festival that are worth paying attention to

BFI London Film Festival is a real medley of trends and classics of modern and restored cinema. Despite the large-scale competitive program, the list includes paintings that have already fought for the main prizes at previous film festivals. But we will tell about the films about which they have not yet spoken or “talked”, but very few.

The third directorial work of the British actor, and again the adaptation of the novel. This time a book about the legend of world ballet Rudolf Nureyev Rudolf Nureyev: The Life of Julia Kavan falls into the artist’s hands, but he “doesn’t write off everything from her, but is only inspired. The plot of the film is built around a fateful moment in the life of a dancer, when he refuses to fly to the USSR, while in the Paris airport. Despite the simplicity of the genre of bird drama, this picture is completely devoid of a kind of “cliche ballet cinema”. Gossip, tears, tragedies, injuries and fights - it remained somewhere in "Black Swan» Aranofski. I Rafe Fiennes here we talk about the artist, about creativity and about art, behind which stands alone Rudolf Nureyev with his grace and rhythm. Therefore, the story of his life begins from the moment he was born on a train and ends with the last minutes at the Paris airport, when the dancer was still a citizen of the Soviet Union. In general, Rafe Fiennes plays Alexander Pushkin, one of the main teachers of Nureyev, and speaks the entire film in Russian. MUST SEE.

«Happy New Year, Colin Basted, Dir. Ben whitley

What kind of London Film Festival is this, if there is no authentic British cinema there? Colin Basted booked a whole house, preserved from aristocratic times, to celebrate the New Year with his relatives, and in fact there are a lot of them. But the whole holiday goes awry, when his own brother comes, whom the whole family has not seen for many years. This word "awry" is also suitable for describing the entire structure of the film, because it is an endless "roller coaster", alternating comedy and tragedy. Someone does not cease to burst into tears, others suddenly find concert amplifiers-speakers and arrange a techno-party in the next room, cutting off the light in the whole house. The rest of the relatives find street musicians in the pub and call to their home, Uncle Bertie in a skirt and red lipstick cannot confess to the family about his illness, and then, according to all traditions of Shakespeare, the two brothers begin to argue and express what they have accumulated over the years. insults. Every movie Ben Wheatley not like the other - then this is a dystopia in "High rise"Then this is a theatrical action in"Shootout". In this case, the New Year dramedi, filmed according to all the canons of British realism, is full of life, drive and true English humor. There is also an actor who played the father of the Lannister, in a skirt and with a red lipstick on his lips. How to avoid this?

«I'm sorry to trouble you, Dir. Boots Riley

Cassius Green lives with his artistic and reckless girlfriend Detroit in the garage of his uncle, who constantly requires payment of housing on time. As a result, he threatens to evict his nephew for the delayed rent. Without thinking, Cassius gets a call center. His attempts to seriously prepare for the interview turned out to be in vain, because everyone is being taken there, so it was not worth forging a diploma and certificates. Being engaged in "cold calls", the guy achieves nothing, and sales are falling. Here, a black colleague suggests that he needs to use his “white voice”, and then people will listen to him. Sales are rising, Cassius is on the rise, but colleagues are going to go on strike because of low wages. A psychedelic story about how any media influences human consciousness. Despite such a serious theme in the colors of “acidic” postmodernism, the timing of the picture seems to be stretched more than for its legitimate 111 minutes.

«Sometimes, always, never, Dir. Karl Hunter

Alan goes to the morgue to inspect the body, which may belong to his youngest son, who disappeared many years ago. In support with him, he calls Peter's eldest son. Arriving too late in the hospital, they settle in a hotel, where they agree to play Scrabble (Erudite, Slovodel). So through the board game, he again finds a common language with his lost son. Debut Carl Hunter reminds himself existential Scandinavian comedies, not for nothing that he spoke of them as sources of inspiration. Minimalistic frames, bright colors, static shooting, subtle humor and characters that others do not understand are the world “Sometimes, always, never.” Bill Nyay и Sam Riley create a strong tandem in the images of father and son, and the conventional “fantasy” drama is a very stylish movie about the dynamics of family relationships. And the name of the film means only the rule of the three buttons of the jacket, the solution of which is waiting for you in the picture itself.

The leading weather forecast for a popular Californian channel named Sean is going through a not the best time in his life. Directly at work during a live broadcast, he has a nervous breakdown, and the entire staff witnesses his tears and a broken condition. In this situation, he is asked to take a vacation, calmly solve his problems and put himself in order. Every day he drives through a hardware store, noticing a group of Mexicans looking for "rough" work. Thinking that he needs help with painting the floor, he offers a job to one of them. From this begins the real, but wonderful friendship. The film consists of awkward moments between the main characters, whose actions cause a comedic effect. On the one hand, it is unclear what could be the relationship between a successful young TV host and an 50-year-old Mexican who does not speak English at all. But such an atypical and strangeness turns out to be a magnet for men, and each helps the other. More home, drive and unusual comedy you this year will not meet.
