I watched (most of) the new Bob Dylan documentary that Martin Scorsese made for Netflix last week. It has some very relaxed and quirky images behind the scenes of Dylan and the (often famous) people around him, along with some great performances.
But there is one thing about the documentary that is completely bizarre: parts of it are fake. Scorsese introduces viewers to a handful of speaking heads who say they played a key role in documenting or creating the tour that Dylan is starting, but in reality it's just actors.
It is not really clear why Scorsese did this (perhaps it would be clearer if I had finished the film, but reviewers seem to say the opposite). It's just a joke, one that you seemingly could miss without finding out. I like the idea of it – there must be some sort of documentary-like story that could use this technique to make a convincingly bigger point. But here? I still don't know exactly what it has achieved, except that we talk.
View seven trailers of this week below.
Hobbs & Shaw
All trailers for Hobbs & Shaw I have the feeling that you are a kind of trailer if you are confident that you have a great film in your hands. This last trailer spends almost half of its time on a tense, recently shot action series that seems to be precise Fast & Furious fans are looking for this spin-off. It will be released on August 2.
Charlie & # 39; s Angels
Elizabeth Banks is rebooting Charlie & # 39; s Angels with a film that she wrote, directed and even acts on. If you're from Banks, it's no surprise that the reboot brings a lot more comedy into the mix with all the spying. The film appears in November.
Queen & Slim
Lena Waithe is the writer behind this beautiful, bleak-looking film about a black couple fleeing after an aggressive police encounter ends with the shooting and killing of a defense agent. The film is directed by Melina Matsoukas, who made Beyoncé's "Formation" video and it seems to be a completely different view of the aftermath of a police shooting. It will be released on November 27.
The current war
This film has been shuffled around for a few years now after The Weinstein Company had disrupted the first release plans for it. Reviews weren't great, which is probably due to the lack of urgency to get the movie into the cinema, but I feel like with these many stars and a general cultural awareness throughout the Tesla versus Edison thing, there might be some interest must be . The film finally comes out in October.
Amazon has a documentary series about rapper Meek Mill's struggle to escape the criminal justice system and the movement created by and in support of him. Jay-Z appears both and is an executive producer of the series. It will be released on August 9.
The Good Liar
I admit, I thought this would be boring because it starts with a romance between two people with very white hair, but it soon becomes an exciting thriller about a scammer trying to pull one over to a very rich man woman. It will be released on November 15.
The next big blockbuster from independence Day director Roland Emmerich is a very CGI-heavy film about Pearl Harbor and the Battle of Midway. I don't know exactly how much appetite there is for another kind of generic, explosion-heavy World War II movie, but then again, I think that's actually the reason that Emmerich has a career. The film appears on November 8.
