There’s Something About Writer-Director Duo Celine Held and Logan Georges top side, Qualifies as an instant classic. Something urgent, deeply disturbing anguish, something cinematic and documentary at the same time. Shaky camera movements are often a reminder that cinema is not about aesthetics, it’s about capturing reality as much as possible.

Little and her mother Nikki (played with stunning physical and emotional currency by her co-director Selina Held) live in an abandoned tunnel in New York.

Nikki is ineligible to be a mother. But the only person Nikki wants to be is a mother. Celine Held brings to her role drug-addicted, bruised, exploited and bankrupt a desperate sense of urgency for her escape that leaves no room for her sympathy. Watching Nikki trying to protect her lovely bewildered daughter from the intense sunshine and drugged predators in the busy, uncaring streets of New York, I see all the poor people we pass by without looking. I thought about

Where is Nikki going with the kids? For over 90 minutes, the question haunts the audience as the co-director weaves through the terrifying brawling traffic. reminded me inadvertently of Chetan Anand’s Hindi film akuri cut (1966) A little boy searches for his mother in an indifferent town.

of top side, Mother is with child. But there is nothing she can do to protect her. The most poignant moment in storytelling occurs when Nikki stumbles into a subway compartment. She lets her kids follow her before the door closes. Real-time captures the terrifying panic of a mother boarding a train as her mother moves to the next station, runs to another platform, returns to where her daughter was left behind, and hopefully finds her child. I was.

You can see that this is exploitative suspense. Or as a petrified symptom of every mother’s worst nightmare. Much of the survival story is wrapped in a satin of fictional brilliance. top side Go in the opposite direction. The film’s heroes assume Ramrod’s urgency, driven by our belief that no matter how bad the situation, we can get to the top of the crisis. This distressed mom knows she’s fighting a losing battle. Her final decision regarding her child’s future will rock you.

I was bowled clean top sideIts jerky, dizzying camerawork (Lowell A. Meyer) might make audiences uncomfortable. But this immersive drama isn’t worth watching in isolation. It draws you into the homeless dilemma. A heartbroken mother and daughter try to find a sanctuary in the city that they can call their home for the night.

It’s not that Nikki and Little don’t run into kindness on the streets. they do. You can’t live on kindness alone.

Not all the poor in the world are asking us for help, especially in this environment of the post-lockdown financial crisis.Bunny King, played with disturbing rawness by Australian actress Essie Davis are hopelessly poor. But if I reach out to her, I doubt she will accept mine. There is a strong pride in her bunny demeanor that never compromises no matter how much she sinks into the dredge of fate. Essie Davis is so honest in playing the character that it makes you cringe.

bunny king justice, currently streaming on Amazon, is one of those heroine-driven dramas that would probably fall apart without a central performance. It’s the life and breath of this chilling, angry drama that seeks to build its own justice system. Essie Davis convinces her co-stars to match because her portrayal is so basic. Some of them do very little. But no one disappoints the central performance.

None, except screenwriter Sophie Henderson, who wants a cinematic ending to Bunny’s miserable plight.Me please do not I think Bunny will recognize the rock-horse heroism that rules his life for the last 40-45 minutes when he locks himself up in the social worker’s office. An instantly sympathetic social worker (Tanea Heke, who struggles to keep her character’s overwhelming virtuosity on the water) becomes Bunny’s sidekick in this drama cat-and-mouse game of doom and despair. increase.

I even go so far as to say that the film becomes Lacrimous in the final interlude. Perhaps debut director Gayson Tabatt was under pressure to soften the blow Bunny took. But holding onto her establishment to get her way is not what Bunny does, and she ended up banging her head against the wall. Bunny King is a woman who stopped searching for answers as to why her life prepared lemons for her: she finished making lemonade. She fights with all her might to free her young, mentally troubled daughter from the clutches of social workers who judge her against her in everything she does. There is a parallel battle in which you need to rescue your niece Tonya (Thomasin Mackenzie) from someone close to you. As if fighting her own battle wasn’t enough! Bunny King is such a righteous justitarian who has nothing to lose. she goes to battle But damn, she doesn’t keep a social worker to take her daughter to her birthday celebration.This isn’t the Bunny King as we know it.

by Liz Garbus lost girl On Netflix, much of the real-life harrowing tale of a distraught mother searching for her missing daughter on Long Island feels like documented evidence has dried up after being dipped in a pool of dehydrating soap operas. A conspiracy revealing the deaths of several young women buried in silence upper class The wealth of Long Island has the potential to knock our socks off. It’s not worth looking at the crimes that rocked America when they disappeared.

The police’s antipathy appears to have something to do with the missing girl being a sex worker. As a cynical cop says somewhere in an investigation opened by a persistent mother, “I have never seen so much time wasted on the murder of a whore.”

right. Hookers are best buried and forgotten. This means that, as a general rule, women who aren’t “that far” socially deserve less justice than if girls disappeared from their usual place. working class family. It’s a shocking moral disagreement that, unfortunately, the film seems incapable of reconciling, let alone resolving. What we see is a mother relentlessly searching for her daughter and her two other daughters, especially teenage Sherry (who was very impressive as the Jewish girl in Jojo Rabbit). Thomasin Mackenzie) comes to terms with the fact that his missing sister is making money. ….well, you know the words that rhyme with shucks.

while supervising squirrel Garbus does an admirable job of shedding light on the cover-up of an inexcusable crime. What could have been a haunting experience for viewers ends up as a moderately evocative echo of crimes and reluctant punishments humanity must forget. What it all comes down to is an emotionless, exploited drama where the tension is controlled entirely by the dramatic skills of lead Amy Ryan. Ms. Ryan is just right to bring out her mother’s sadness and determination.It’s certainly not easy to sympathize with a woman who makes her daughter earn despite her bad reputation. This drama of dull edges and sharp disappointments offers no easy solution to life on the edge.
