If you’re a fan of theatre, you’ll be a fan of Noises Off! A loving look at the crazy that happens both on stage and back stage of a production, with an incredible cast, and incredible writing. The show must go on!
Mathieu Kassovitz (The Crimson Rivers) took the film world by storm with La haine (Hate), a gritty, unsettling, and visually explosive look at racial and cultural volatility in modern-day France, specifically the low-income banlieues on Paris’s outskirts. Aimlessly passing their days in the concrete environs of their dead-end suburbia, Vinz, Hubert, and Saïd. White, Black, and Arab, they give human faces to France’s immigrant and marginalized populations. Their resentment simmering until it reaches a boiling point. A work of tough beauty, La Haine is a landmark of contemporary French cinema and a gripping reflection of its country’s ongoing identity crisis.
