Kurzel, Cretton, Winterbottom: watch this week

Image The last weekend of February will be a real feast of the spirit for connoisseurs of auteur cinema, and this is not necessarily about an arthouse, but specifically about directors with a baggage of unconventional works and their own vision. The closest to the mainstream novelty can be called the action "Akimbo Cannons", the localized name for which we came up with the whole world. The Potter star in this tape will try on the image of a simple guy in a difficult situation: with pistols fastened to his hands, he will have to play a game of survival. Another story from the series "the fittest survives" will be told by Australian Justin Kurzel, who decided to tell the world an unexpected look at the legendary bandit Ned Kelly and his henchmen.

Also on the big screens will be a new film by Destin Cretton, who shot the poignant drama "Castle of Glass", and another creation of the outstanding Briton Michael Winterbottom. All in all, USA distributors decided to present more than a dozen premieres to the public next week, as usual, we chose the five most intriguing ones for review.

The new work of Justin Kurzel, who directed the shocking "Snow City" and the controversial "Assassin's Creed", tells the story of the Australian outlaw Ned Kelly, from the mention of whose name local cops had a nervous tic. His daring bank robberies and brutal murders of police officers were legendary, and an impressive reward was assigned to his head. As planned by the director, despite the fact that law and society considered Ned and his gang to be desperate thugs worthy of the gallows, in fact he was something like the Australian version of Robin Hood. It is from this point of view that the film was shot. The cast of the crime drama includes George McKay, Essie Davis, Charlie Hunnam and Russell Crowe.

Another filmmaker with his own unique style, Michael Winterbottom ("24-hour Party People"), will present to our viewers the comedy drama "Greed", which in fact will talk about almost all deadly sins. The protagonist is a billionaire who made his fortune selling fashionable clothes (of course, played by the director's muse - irresistible in any image of Steve Coogan). He bathes in luxury, not really thinking about morality, he loves to have fun and shock the audience. But sooner or later, such a lifestyle inevitably leads to the fact that some stupid gossip will ruin your entire image, and you will have to somehow get out. For example, arrange gladiator fights or start a look-alike show ... Coogan was accompanied on the screen by the brilliant Isla Fisher, as well as the star of the series "Sex Education" Ace Butterfield.
