A work by Michael Mann starring Johnny Depp, a low-budget sci-fi film, Jango Unchained, and The Fallout.
Crime, science-fiction, western and drama. In number 284 of the article series “What movie should we watch this weekend?” You will encounter four different works in Zoomji media; Two high-budget films from famous directors and two compact independent films.
The two more well-known films are watched by most viewers even if it is only for the purpose of completing the viewing or reviewing the artistic career of their famous directors. But give a chance to the two lesser-known films on the list. Because each of them have purposefully and thoughtfully depicted the pain, sadness and effort to cope with the disastrous moments of life.
Public Enemies (2009)
In the group of the best films Michael Mann It doesn’t rank big, but it’s still worth a watch.
If a news was published today that said Jonny Depp, Christian Bale And Marion Cotillard As the lead actors in Michael Mann’s new film, some fans were clinging to the ceiling with excitement. Therefore, it is understandable that the audience had high expectations from the movie Public Enemies in 2009. When those expectations were not met, the film was probably criticized more than it should have been.
Now more than a decade after its release, Public Enemies is a crime drama based on a true story that if you like the actors and the director, you definitely won’t waste your time watching it. Have many of the things done by Michael Mann in this film already been done better in some of his other works? Yes. Does the movie really not spend enough time on some minor characters? Certainly. But with all this, is this movie based on a true story ahead of several boring crime movies of recent years? Without a doubt.
Another Earth (2011)
Anyone who has read a significant number of this series of feature film articles on ZoomJi knows that films that premiere at Sundance have a significant chance of making the list.
Another Earth is one of those low-budget sci-fi films that only get a chance to be seen enough at festivals like Sundance; One of those science-fictions that go to tell stories with strange story settings to express themselves.
In this type of cinematographic work, we are facing a mental experiment. The director doesn’t spend time proving the film’s sci-fi scenario is possible, but instead uses it to show emotions that many people struggle with in the real world every day.
The story is about a girl who destroyed someone’s life in a painful accident. Meanwhile, another planet is approaching our planet; A planet inhabited by other versions of all of us humans.
Django Unchained (2012)
More than a decade after the release of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, two short paragraphs are not going to say anything about this noteworthy work. However, the news of cinema and television in recent days regarding two highly acclaimed artists makes us want to revisit Django.
On the one hand, announcing the release date of Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon means that many are preparing themselves to be nailed again by DiCaprio’s screams; DiCaprio in old clothes. Meanwhile, based on the latest reports, we know that Quentin Tarantio wants to start filming his last feature film as a director during the fall season. Will Leonardo DiCaprio also play a role in his final project? we don’t know But after watching Django Unchained, I can’t help but wish for this to happen.
After the accident.
Even those who have not been fortunate enough to experience anything so dark and devastating in their lives dread the thought of the depth of horror that can follow. In the simplest possible example, we can think about the relationship of humans with terrible cinematographic works. When we see a horror movie with an impressive world-building, we may be more afraid of it when it is night and we are sleeping alone in our room; At a time when there is no more news of the presence of others and the eruption of familiar reactions such as screaming.
A very maddening and disturbing manifestation of such a feeling can be seen in psychological trauma after terrible events. For example, a person who thought for a few minutes that he might die very quickly and painfully by being shot in the body, after surviving that sick situation, he is not going to be exactly the same person as before. Because according to many people, that previous person does not exist anymore. That previous person died on the same day in the same sick situation. This person who is left behind, just has to look for different ways to survive and take care of the wound, which may be less noticeable years later.
The movie The Fallout which Jenna OrtegaWednesday series actor and Julie Bowen, has a Modern Family actor in the cast, is about trauma. The focus of the film on the horror after the incident and spending time on the bitter and realistic display of many pains of this era seems to be fairly remarkable.
