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

    Reviewed by Robin Menken   Jacques Audiard’s "Paris 13th District" ("Les Olympiades”) is lighter than his usual fare. Weaving the lives of his four main characters with a sort of Alan Rudolph touch. he focuses on Paris millennials, a vain, dispassionate bunch. 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. It deals with a subject with which millions of Indians will identify, both city-dwellers and villagers. The team gets the setting, the casting and the milieu right. 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...
