Operation Mincemeat

Colin Firth stars in "Operation Mincement," in theaters today, on the Netflix soon after. An old-school WWII movie more about the schemers in the home shore bunkers than the doughboys across the sea.

https://filmyap.substack.com/p/operation-mincemeat?s=w

An effective, old-school war drama with a top-notch cast and director that reveals the human story behind the greatest ruse in military history.

A delightful heist/courtroom/character piece from director Roger Michell and starring the great Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren.
https://filmyap.substack.com/p/the-duke?s=w

Jim Broadbent gives a twinkly, charismatic performance as an obscure Brit raconteur who stole a famous painting, with Helen Mirren as his long-suffering wife.

Logan Richardson Sowash says the new Netflix anime film is flawed, yet delightful.

The AV Room: Fortress: Sniper's Eye

Here's something exceedingly cool: Alec Toombs scored an interview with the director and co-star of the new Bruce Willis action film, "Fortress: Sniper's Eye." And yes, he asked them about Willis' recent revelation and how it impacted filming.

https://filmyap.substack.com/p/the-av-room-fortress-snipers-eye?s=w

Alec Toombs sat down with director Josh Sternfeld and co-star Kelly Greyson to discuss the making of the new action film starring Bruce Willis.

Anaïs in Love

Another week, another frisky French film in local cinemas. Christopher Lloyd was rather disappointed in this one -- it's like a pale imitation of "The Worst Person in the World."

#AnaisinLove #MovieReview

A familiar subject, the romantic misadventures of an impulsive girl-child, fails to undertake any meaningful introspection in this French trifle.

Charlotte

"Charlotte," the new animated drama gradually rolling out in theaters, shows that animation can be employed for serious, real-life stories. Christopher Lloyd says if you liked last year's "Flee," this should hold your interest.

https://filmyap.substack.com/p/charlotte?s=w

An incredibly revealing and tragic portrait of a German-Jewish artist that demonstrates the power of animation to tell grown-up stories.

A takedown of Celine Dion? Or a tribute? Despite the filmmaker/star's odd choice to morph her own face onto a child's body, "Aline" is a tuneful hit that mostly hits the right notes.

https://filmyap.substack.com/p/aline?s=w

Despite some wonky CGI, this "fictional biopic" about singer Celine Dion is an engaging tribute that mostly hits the right notes.
