Jacques Audiard’s "Paris 13th District" ("Les Olympiades”) is lighter than his usual fare

Think of it as chamber music about their loves, fights, ambitions and, most crucially, their loneliness, exacerbated by relationship-free hook-up apps. ...

Bhirkit, Review: Two deaths, one funeral, one election and three greedy inheritors

Bhirkit, Review: Two deaths, one funeral, one election and three greedy inheritors Bhirkit (Marathi for ‘greed’, an approximate translation), has its heart in the right place.

The emotions are palpable and real. And yet, the film fails to knit all these elements together into a tight narrative. Inspired by his own memo...
