Something in the Air

  • Something in the Air

In this week’s long review Tal Rosenberg makes a case for Olivier Assayas’s latest feature, Something in the Air, as a mature revision of his first international success, Cold Water, akin to James Joyce’s revision of his aborted first novel, “Stephen Hero,” into A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. If that’s not literate enough for you, we’ve also got a short review of The Great Gatsby, Baz Luhrmann’s big-screen adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic. And don’t forget Haile Gerima’s Bush Mama, screening tonight at Logan Center for the Arts with the filmmaker in person.

Check out this week’s section for new capsule reviews of Aqui y Alla, in which a man returns from the U.S. to his home in Mexico to find himself a misfit in his own family; Dark Waters, the 1944 debut feature of cult director Andre de Toth; In the House, an academic satire by French director Francois Ozon (Under the Sand, 8 Women, Potiche); and Love Is All You Need, a Danish rom-com from director Susanne Bier and screenwriter Anders Thomas Jensen (Open Hearts, Brothers, After the Wedding, In a Better World).
