Director: Adam McKay

As vice-president to George W Bush, Dick Cheney may have been the most influential yet mysterious political figure of modern times. How did he rise to power? What – if anything – did he believe in?  McKay (The Big Short) and the almost unrecognisable Bale have hilarious, and openly partisan, answers to these questions, in an unorthodox comedy that has been nominated for six Academy Awards.

Knight of Cups (2015, USA) cert. 15

knight-of-cups landscape poster 500
Director: Terrence Malick
Stars: Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Brian Dennehy

A empty movie studio lot;

an ageing father, a raging brother;

a spaghetti junction of freeways;

Knight of Cups column 200

women he’s picked up;

women he cares for but can’t connect with;

his ex-wife, caring for the seriously ill;

pelicans;

dubious life lessons from Antonio Banderas at an exclusive pool party;

 

the Pacific Ocean;   the Mojave Desert;   Las Vegas…..

From these fragments of narrative and emotion, Malick and the brilliant cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki follow screenwriter Rick (Bale) through a personal crisis in “mesmerising” (Metro) style. Malick’s unique, perplexing and fascinating approach attracts an A-list cast and creates beautiful moments that live long in the memory.
