Motherless Brooklyn is a 2019 American neo-noir crime film written, produced, and directed by Edward Norton, based on the 1999novel of the same name by Jonathan Lethem. Set in 1957 New York City, the film follows a private investigator with Tourette syndrome, who must solve the murder of his mentor. Norton also stars in the film, along with Bruce WillisGugu Mbatha-RawBobby CannavaleCherry JonesAlec Baldwin, and Willem Dafoe.

Although the book is set in contemporary times, Norton felt the plot and dialogue lent themselves more to a noir setting, shifting it to 1957.

Set against the backdrop of 1950s New York, Motherless Brooklyn follows Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton), a lonely private detective who struggles with Tourette Syndrome and has a photographic memory, as he endeavors to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend, Frank Minna (Bruce Willis). Armed only with a few clues and the engine of his obsessive mind, Lionel loosens closely-guarded secrets that hold the fate of the whole city in the balance. In a mystery that carries him from gin-soaked jazz clubs in Harlem to the hard-edged slums of Brooklyn and, finally, into the luxury halls of New York’s power brokers, Lionel contends with criminals, corruption and the most dangerous man in the city…

 

Lionel Essrog: [voice over] Okay, listen. I got something wrong with me. That’s the first thing to know. I twitch and shout a lot. It makes me look like a damn freak show. But inside my head is an even bigger mess. I can’t stop twisting things around, words and sounds especially. I have to keep playing with them until they come out right.

 

Lionel Essrog: [voice over] Then I started working for Frank. Frank Minna, Private Eye. He’s the one who taught me how to use my head, turn it into a strength. He gave me a place in this crappy world, until I screwed up.

The Irishman is a 2019 American epic crime film directed and produced by Martin Scorsese and written by Steven Zaillian. The film follows Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran (Robert De Niro), a truck driver who becomes a hitman and gets involved with mobster Russell Bufalino (Joe Pesci) and his crime family, including his time working for the powerful Teamster Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino).
One of the lines that stands out in the trailer for The Irishman is “I heard you paint houses,” said to Robert De Niro’s character as he’s shown murdering someone. That line is the title of the book that The Irishman is based on, written by Charles Brandt in 2004.
The Irishman runs at 209 minutes, making the crime epic nearly three and a half hours long.
Thanks to CGI (computer-generated imagery) we will see the actors also playing younger versions of themselves.
The Irishman is scheduled to receive a limited theatrical release at the beginning of November 2019, followed by digital streaming on Netflix on November 27, 2019.

Tagline:  His story changed history

The synopsis that comes with the first official trailer reads: “Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, an epic saga of organised crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th Century.
Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.”

The film received widespread acclaim, with critics highlighting the technical aspects, direction, screenplay, and the performances of De Niro, Pacino, and Pesci.
On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds a 99% approval score. The website’s critics consensus reads: “An epic gangster drama that earns its extended runtime, The Irishman finds Martin Scorsese revisiting familiar themes to poignant, funny, and profound effect.”
Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the film a score of 94 out of 100,indicating “universal acclaim”.

Il prossimo film in lingua originale è Joker, in programma al Cinema Centrale giovedì 10 ottobre ore 21.30, venerdì 11 ore 21.40 e martedì 15 ore 19.20

Scheda a cura di Wall Street English presso le casse del cinema.

Joker is a 2019 American psychological thriller film directed by Todd Phillips. The film, based on DC Comics characters, stars Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker. Set in 1981, the film follows Arthur Fleck, a failed stand-up comedian who turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City. Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Bill Camp, Shea Whigham, and Marc Maron appear in supporting roles.
Joker premiered at the on August 31, 2019, where it won the Golden Lion.

Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) lives with his ailing  mother, Penny (Frances Conroy) in Gotham City. It is 1981, and  Gotham is struggling with crime, unemployment, and poverty.  Arthur works as a clown-for-hire for a company called Ha-Ha’s. He is tasked with advertising a store by dancing and waving a sign around. The sign gets snatched by a group of punk teens, forcing Arthur to chase them into an alley. They smash the sign against his face and proceed to mercilessly kick him while he’s down. At Ha-Ha’s, the clown is given a gun for protection by his co-worker Randall (Glenn Fleschler) after he hears about the mugging incident. Arthur suffers from a neurological disorder that causes him to laugh at inappropriate times and depends on a social services worker for medication.  He is infatuated with his neighbor, single mother Sophie (Zazie Beetz); he invites her to his stand-up comedy show, and they begin dating.  While entertaining at a children’s hospital, Arthur’s gun falls out of his pocket. He is fired and Randall lies that Arthur bought the gun himself. On the subway, still in his clown makeup, Arthur is beaten by three drunken Wayne Enterprises businessmen; he shoots two in self-defense and executes the third. The news of the three murders spreads, with some seeing it as an attack on the wealthy, while others support the act.  The murders are condemned by billionaire mayoral candidate Thomas Wayne (Brett Cullen), who speaks out and condemns it, labelling those envious of more successful people as “clowns”.
Demonstrations against Gotham’s rich begin, with protesters wearing clown masks in Arthur’s image…….

Did you know?

Phoenix lost 52 pounds (24 kg) in preparation, and based his laugh on “videos of people suffering from pathological laughter.” He also sought to portray a character that audiences could not identify with and did not look to previous Joker actors for inspiration; instead, he read a book about political assassinations so he could understand killers and motivations.

Il prossimo film in lingua originale è Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, in programma al Cinema Centrale giovedì 19, venerdì 20, lunedì 23 e martedì 24 settembre alle ore 21.00

Scheda a cura di Wall Street English presso le casse del cinema.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is a 2019 comedy-drama film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino.

A large all-star cast performs in “multiple storylines in a modern fairy tale tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age. The film is set in 1969 Los Angeles, where an actor and his stunt double and longtime friend navigate the changing Hollywood film industry. The Hollywood Reporter wrote that critics had “an overall positive view” of the film, calling it “Tarantino’s love letter to ’60s L.A.” and praising its casting choices and setting, though some were “divided on its ending”.

In February 1969, Hollywood actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of 1950s highly popular Western television series Bounty Law, fears his career is over.. His agent advises him to make Spaghetti Westerns, which Dalton feels is beneath him. Dalton’s friend and stunt double, Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) – a war veteran who lives in a trailer with his pit bull, Brandy – drives Dalton around town because Dalton’s high-functioning alcoholism has resulted in too many DUIs. Booth struggles to find film work since the death of his wife, whom he is rumored to have murdered. Actress Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) and her husband, director Roman Polanski (Rafał Zawierucha), have moved into the house next door to Dalton’s. Dalton dreams of befriending the couple to restore his status. That night, Tate and Polanski join Jay Sebring (Emile Hirsch) at a celebrity-filled party at the Playboy Mansion. Charles Manson (Damon Herriman) stops by the home of Polanski and Tate looking for record producer Terry Melcher, who used to live there, but is turned away by Sebring. While driving Dalton’s car, Booth picks up a young hitchhiker, “Pussycat” (Margaret Qualley) . He drops her off at Spahn Ranch, where Booth once filmed Bounty Law. Booth is suspicious of the large number of hippies living on the property (the Manson Family), and suspects they are taking advantage of the owner, George Spahn (Bruce Dern).
