The Tragedy of Macbeth

United States. 2021. Directed by Joel Coen. (105 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD] in English

AFI Awards Winner! Movie of the Year
National Board of Review Winner! Best Adapted Screenplay, Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography
New York Film Critics Circle Award Winner! Best Supporting Actress - Kathryn Hunter
Oscar Shortlist! Original Score
Golden Globes Nominee! Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture Drama - Denzel Washington

Satellite Awards Nominee! Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama - Denzel Washington, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction and Production Design

A work of stark shadow and light clearly intended for big screen viewing, Joel Coen’s daring, inventive visualization of The Scottish Play is an anguished film of incantatory rage that stares, mouth agape, at a sorrowful world undone by blind greed and thoughtless ambition. In meticulously world-weary performances, a strikingly inward Denzel Washington is the man who would be king and an effortlessly Machiavellian Frances McDormand is his Lady, a couple driven to political assassination — and deranged by guilt — after they are approached with the cunning prognostications of a trio of weird sisters (a virtuoso physical inhabitation by Kathryn Hunter). Though it echoes some of the forbidding visual designs of past productions, Coen’s tale of sound and fury is entirely his own — and undoubtedly one for our moment, a frightening depiction of amoral political power-grabbing that, like its hero, ruthlessly barrels ahead into the inferno. THE TRAGEDY OF MACBETH is a bold and fierce tale of murder, madness, ambition and wrathful cunning.



A Hero

Iran/France. 2021. Directed by Asghar Farhadi. (127 mins.) Rated PG-13. in Persian with English subtitles

Cannes Film Festival Winner! Grand Prix
National Board of Review Winner! Best Original Screenplay

Satellite Awards Nominee! Best Motion Picture - International, Best Original Screenplay

Anchored by the remarkable central performance of Amir Jadidi as a man who is almost undone by one selfless gesture that goes viral, A HERO is a fiercely compelling and intelligent film about honesty, honor and the price of freedom. Oscar winner Asghar Farhadi (A SEPARATION, THE SALESMAN) is back in contention this awards season with his morality tale about a prisoner incarcerated for defaulting on a debt. During a two-day leave, Rahim (Jadidi) is determined to convince his creditor to agree to terms that would expedite his release. This riveting and reflective drama blurs the line of innocence and guilt while questioning the very concept of what defines a good deed. It is not only an absorbing, shrewd political parable about injustice, but a soulful and demonstrative examination of the danger in putting our heroes onto social media pedestals.

Talk about punch-drunk love! Brilliantly styled, wonderfully soundtracked and screamingly funny, this mesmerizing, romantic 70s throwback is a film of immense, swirling complexity. A precocious teen (Cooper Hoffman, son of late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman) and a discontented young woman (Alana Haim) find friendship and romance as they scheme their way through the San Fernando Valley in 1973. Peppered with sketchy Tinseltown lore and auteurist details, master Paul Thomas Anderson's (BOOGIE NIGHTS, MAGNOLIA) delectable and playful tale is a sentimental reminder of what it means to be young as well as an embodiment of what it feels like to grow up. There's an abundance of nostalgic warmth exuding from every frame of LICORICE PIZZA, making it undeniably one of the most captivating films of the year.

Weaving his legendary magic as a storyteller, director Guillermo del Toro (THE SHAPE OF WATER, PAN'S LABYRINTH) delivers a deliciously dark, stylish rendition of NIGHTMARE ALLEY with lavish visuals and heart-pulsing climatic sequences. When charismatic but down-on-his-luck Stanton Carlisle (Bradley Cooper) endears himself to clairvoyant Zeena (Toni Collette) and her has-been mentalist husband Pete (David Strathairn) at a traveling carnival, he crafts a golden ticket to success, using this newly acquired knowledge to grift the wealthy elite of 1940s New York society. With the virtuous Molly (Rooney Mara) loyally by his side, Stanton plots to con a dangerous tycoon (Richard Jenkins) with the aid of a mysterious psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) who could become his most formidable opponent yet. Del Toro's grasp on the dark majesty and mystery of film noir combined with his passion for the mystical and peculiar make for an entrancing and potent combination. Already racking up numerous awards, NIGHTMARE ALLEY is also showing up on nearly every Best of 2021 list of note!
