Re: #1373 Rifkin's Festival

Bei mir kommt der Film nicht über eine 3- hinaus. Bei 49 Filmen in der langen Regiekarriere von Woody Allen sind gewisse Überschneidungen und Wiederholungen natürlich fast unvermeidlich; aber "Rifkin's Festival" war schon eine sehr deutliche und nicht besonders ausgefeilte Selbstkopie. Hier wurden E...

#1373 Rifkin's Festival

"Rifkin's Festival" is the 49th film of writer/director Woody Allen. His more recent troubles with allegations of abuse I already mentioned in the blurb for his last Sneak film, 2019s "A Rainy Day in New York" (which can be found here ; as far as I know, nothing has changed since then). This film w...

#1372 The Black Phone

"The Black Phone" is a rere three-peat for the Sneak - for the third time in a row, we have shown a movie even before its US release date. This horror film is based on a short story by Joe Hill who is the son of Stephen King. Director Scott Derrickson ("Doctor Strange") - who previously helmed #057...

#1371 Good Luck to You, Leo Grande

"Good Luck to You, Leo Grande" was first and foremost a women's effort. The script was written by the british actress Katy Brand as her first feature scripts. She is friends with Oscar winner Emma Thompson who quickly got attached to star the film, which sparked the interest of Australian director ...

#1370 Press Play

Greg Björkman is a pretty clean slate when it comes to cinematic endeavours; he worked as a production assistant on #0974 "Stuck in Love" and did visual effect work for a couple of short films, and for tearjerker "The Fault in Our Stars". "Press Play" is his first directorial effort apart from a do...

#1369 The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

"Massive Talent" is only the second film by writer/director Tom Gormican, whose only previous cinematic effort was 2014's "That Awkward Moment" - a rather average romantic comedy inexplicably starring not only Zac Efron, but also Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller and Mackenzie Davis. This time, he pe...

Re: #1368 A Day to Die

Hallöchen, ich habe mich dann noch zu einer 5+ durchgerungen, weil wenigstens Dillon und Grillo sich gelegentlich daran erinnerten, daß sie Schauspieler und keine Figuren aus dem Kasperletheater sind, und weil aufgrund der geradezu hirnrissigen Wendungen und beknackten Dialoge der Film zumindest pha...

#1368 A Day to Die

"A Day to Die" was Bruce Willis' 19th appearance on our Sneak screen - and while it may have been his last (though the retired actor still has a few unreleased movies up his sleeve), it certainly wasn't his shortest, as that honor goes to his blink-and-you-miss-it cameo in #1149 "Split". "A Day to ...

#1367 Sundown (2021)

Writer/director Michel Franco is a relative unknown, even though some of his films turned heads at various festivals, e.h. "Nuevo Orden" (where a wedding turned into a coup d'etat) or "Chronic" (where Tim Roth played a caregiver for patients with chronic illnesses). The filmmaker has a reputation f...

Re: #1366 Dog (2022)

Ich denke, die Bewertung des Films wird im wesentlichen davon abhängen, wie man zu Haustieren (ich weiß, das "Haus-" trifft es hier nicht ganz) im Allgemeinen und zu Filmen mit solchen Tieren in einer Hauptrolle im Besonderen steht. Da ich nie einen Draht zu Haustieren hatte und ich auch Porträts vo...

#1366 Dog (2022)

"Dog" is the directorial debut of both Reid Carolin and Channing Tatum; Carolin and Tatum were frequent collaborator way before this film, as Tatum starred in both "Magic Mike" films written by Carolin, who was also a producer in "Logan Lucky" and "White House Down". The script for "Dog" was penned...

Re: #1365 X (2022)

Von mir gibt es eine "Drei". Ich fand, der Film verbrachte zu viel Zeit in seiner Einleitung (also bei der Einführung der Figuren) - das war an sich erfrischend, wurde dann aber doch etwas monoton, zumal man sich ziemlich sicher sein konnte, daß diverse dieser Personen später das Zeitlich segnen wür...

#1365 X (2022)

Full disclosure: while I enjoy the occasional horror film (was a fan of "Scream" and a regular visitor of the FFF during the late 1990s and through the 2000s), I have almost no knowledge of classic horror films of the 1970s, as I am an 1980s kid. For example, I have never seen the original "Texas C...

"THe Outfit" is the directorial debut of Chicago native Graham Moore, who won a Oscar for his 2014 screenplay for "The Imitation Game". This time, he partnered up with veteran actor but first-time co-author Johnathan McClain to create a story set in 1950s Chicago, where a British cutter (he doesn't...

That filmmakers Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert - who publish their joint ventures under the moniker "Daniels" - have a vivid imagination, we Sneakers already knew; after all, we witnessed it firsthand in 2016s #1130 "Swiss Army Man", where a corpse came in handy for all sorts of things. Their new...
