Sadly, Fernando Meirelles hasn’t quite lived up to his brilliant debut City of God. Both The Constant Gardener and his most recent work, Blindess, were steps down from the kinetic energy and talent found in that Brazil-set feature. The director is back, however, with a new drama written by Oscar-winner Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon).
360, based on Arthur Schnitzler‘s play Reigen, follows the intertwining stories of sexual encounters with the strong cast of Rachel Weisz, Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law and Ben Foster. While word out from its Toronto premiere was mixed, the first trailer below via Apple, hints at what could be a return to form for Meirelles, with its top-notch source material and talent on display.

I’m not sure I’d think much about diving into the work of Les Blank if only given a plot synopsis. His films, including a plethora now available in a stunningly thorough Criterion set, take on the esoteric sides of America, from bluegrass musicians to the wonders of polka to the taste of Creole cooking. These […]
