In january, I love discovering new movies mainly influenced by the nominations of ceremonies like the Oscars or the Golden Globes. Even if i was extremely disappointed by the Cesars’ nominations in France this year, a lots of films teased my curiosity in this begining of the year. I choose to talk about my two main crushes at the moment:
- When I heard that the new movie with Benedict Cumberbatch received numerous nominations at the Oscars, I was even more excited to see The Imitation Game. Mr Cumberbatch play the role of Alan Turing, the mathematician who enabled the Allies to defeat the Nazis during the second world war by decrypting a lots of messages written by the Germans. In addition to this incredible story, we can see the position of a man like Alan Turing (who is homosexual) in the english’s society after the war. I’m a huge fan of Benedict Cumberbatch and i have to say that his performance in this film is brilliant, as much as Keira Knightley ( however I am not very impressed by her usual performances).
- An another movie which is more confidential but also stunning: Whiplash, directed by Damien Chazelle, tells the story of a nineteen-year-old boy who wants to become an icon of Jazz as a drummer. I think it’s the movie to see for jazz fans or just for people who love music and who actually play an instrument because Whiplash is a beautiful illustration of the musician’s work. For now, this movie is my favorite in the race for the award for best picture.
These are just quick reviews of two movies which really Worth the view: I share with you the trailers, in case you want to see what it looks like, and if you have already seen one of these movies are both, don’t hesitate to give your opinion.
