Read my spoiler-free movie review of The Red Sea Diving Resort (2019).


Chris Evans, Michiel Huisman, Hayley Bennett, and Alona Tal star in writer / director  Gideon Raff’s historical thrilller, The Red Sea Diving Resort.

Set in the early 80s, this is the true story of the international agents and brave Ethiopians who used a deserted holiday retreat in Sudan as a front to smuggle thousands of refugees to Israel…

I simply want to know how this story ends and to learn about the agents involved. People doing admirable things that are far from my own reality.

Alessandro Nivola, Greg Kinnear, Michael Kenneth Williams, Ben Kingsley, Chris Chalk, Alex Hassell and Schelaine Bennett also star.

The Red Sea Diving Resort Release Dates: July 31st, 2019 (US)…

New comedy The Art Of Self Defensestars Imogen Poots , Alessandro Nivola and Jesse Eisenberg

Directed by Riley Stearns it’s the story of Casey (Eisenberg) , a man who’s randomly attacked on the street and so begins a journey to learn self defense, with the help of a charismatic and mysterious Sensei.

The promise of comedy is why I’m interested and I definitely want to see Casey become less afraid. There’s also the fact that I already like Nivola’s character’s attitude. He reminds me quite a bit of Chris Messina’s Danny Castellano character in The Mindy Project.

Steve Terada, Phillip Andre Botello, Leland Orser, Josh Fadem, Elizabeth Howlett and Chris Lay also star.

The Art Of Self Defense Release Dates: June 21st, 2019 (US)…

The boundaries of faith and sexuality are explored in Disobedience, a new drama / romance that stars Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams and Alessandro Nivola.

Directed and co-written by Sebastián Lelio, Weisz plays a woman who returns to the community that shunned her for her attraction to a childhood friend…

I generally enjoy the work of the stars of this movie and I can’t wait to see everything come together well creatively. I also like that Disobedience is set in England. If I’m hearing correctly, Rachel MacAdams appears to be speaking in a British accent.

Anton Lesser, Nicholas Woodeson and Alexis Zegerman also star.

Disobedience Release Dates: April 27th, 2018 (US); August 24th, 2018 (UK)…

In You Were Never Really Here, Joaquin Phoenix plays a war veteran whose attempt to save a young girl from a sex trafficking ring goes horribly wrong. Directed by Lynne Ramsay; Alessandro Nivola and Ekaterina Samsonov also star.

The sound / music in the first 45 seconds was quite challenging for my delicate ears; nevertheless, I’m interested in this movie. Phoenix is great and the film’s mood reminds me of one of my favourite Tom Hardy movies, Locke (2013)Also, the film’s synopsis brings to mind The Equalizer (2014) – except things probably didn’t go quite as terribly for Denzel Washington’s character.

Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hank Azaria and Alessandro Nivola are the stars of The Wizard Of Lies, an HBO movie about Bernie Madoff and his Ponzi scheme which is also known as the largest  financial fraud in United States history…

Of course I’ll be tuning in. De Niro is as watchable as ever, I’m excited to see Michelle Pfeiffer in a movie again and the story is so very intriguing. Even more so because I didn’t really pay close attention to the news when Madoff was all over it back in 2008.

I’m so ready for a good drama like this.

The Wizard Of Lies is directed by Barry Levinson.

The Wizard Of Lies Release Dates: May 20th, 2017 (HBO)…

Nicolas Winding Refn, celebrated director of Drive (2011) and Only God Forgives (2013)has a new movie. Starring  Elle Fanning, Alessandro Nivola, Christina Hendricks and Bella Heathcote, what we have is a thriller / horror coming…

I haven’t watched Refn’s previous movie Only God Forgives (2013) but it’s clear to me that  the man loves neon. This time round neon is not just part of the cinematography / mis en scene, but it’s in the movie’s title.

I’ll be watching because drive was good, as is Fanning. I just need to get brave first. You know, for the horror.

Keanu Reeves, Jena Malone Desmond Harrington and Charles Baker also star…

The Neon Demon Release Dates: July 8th, 2016 (UK); Jun, 2016 (US)…
