D: Lijo Jose Pellissery.
S: Sabumon Abdusamad, Chemban Vinod Jose, Antony Varghese.
Kinetic, feverish action sequences. Deafening sound design. Stylish camerawork. Intricate crowd choreography. Hollywood, give director Lijo Jose Pellissery a gig already.
THE MIRACLE OF THE SARGASSO SEA ★★★☆☆
D: Syllas Tzoumerkas.
S: Angeliki Papoulia, Youla Boudali, Christos Passalis, Argyris Xafis, Thanassis Dovris.
Greek neo-noir reminds of CHINATOWN, though without that narrative's forcefulness and precision. Atmospheric and disturbing. Well played gender reversal of lead being a burned out, alcoholic cop.
Ds: Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead (The Endless, Spring).
S: Anthony Mackie, Jamie Dornan, Katie Aselton.
A cross between LIMITLESS and THE TIME TRAVELLER'S WIFE. High concept and bizarre, lurching tonally from BRINGING OUT THE DEAD to BACK TO THE FUTURE. Not as good perhaps as all that might sound.
