The Super Mario Bros. Movie (2023): Review – Loud And Clear Reviews
Review: The Super Mario Bros. Movie features countless easter eggs set to a gorgeous score, but it falls short whenever it needs to be an actual movie.

April 2023: New Movies In Theaters This MonthThe Severing: Trailer (Kino Lorber)

Official synopsis: From acclaimed filmmaker Mark Pellington (The Mothman Prophecies), a visceral and powerful feature-length dance film. This cathartic movement piece was created in collaboration with the brilliant choreographer Nina McNeely (Gaspar Noe’s Climax), rising Dutch cinematographer Evelin Van Rei, and editor Sergio Pinheiro. Inspired by the Wim Wenders film Pina, Pellington was interested in expressing feelings and emotions through a ‘narrative of movement and text,’ told through the physical expression of dancers’ bodies and souls. Grief is physical and lies in the body, in our very DNA, which makes movement the ideal way to communicate it. In Pellington’s words, “It’s the way to express what it feels like to be severed or to feel nothing. The film is a cathartic reencounter for anybody who’s felt loss, or isolation, or struggled with these themes: fear, reconnection, isolation.”

Full Review: Little Richard: I Am Everything Film Review

Little Richard: I Am Everything – Film Review – Loud And Clear Reviews
Film Review: Little Richard: I Am Everything is a scattershot but fairly interesting music documentary about recognising and celebrating the Architect of Rock and Roll.

Official synopsis: Director Lisa Cortés’ Sundance opening night documentary Little Richard: I Am Everything tells the story of the Black queer origins of rock n’ roll, exploding the whitewashed canon of American pop music to reveal the innovator – the originator – Richard Penniman. Through a wealth of archive and performance that brings us into Richard’s complicated inner world, the film unspools the icon’s life story with all its switchbacks and contradictions. 

In interviews with family, musicians, and cutting-edge Black and queer scholars, the film reveals how Richard created an art form for ultimate self-expression, yet what he gave to the world he was never able to give to himself. Throughout his life, Richard careened like a shiny cracked pinball between God, sex and rock n’ roll. The world tried to put him in a box, but Richard was an omni being who contained multitudes – he was unabashedly everything.

Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis offers her a simple bet: if he loses his next fight, he must remain sex-free for a month. If he wins, Abby must live in his apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that Abby’s dark past is about to emerge, and he may have finally met his match.

April 2023: New Movies In Theaters This MonthTOMMY GUNS: Trailer (Kino Lorber)

Official synopsis: Angolan-Portuguese director Carlos Conceição’s audacious and enigmatic TOMMY GUNS invokes the ghosts of Angola’s colonial past while embracing the symbolic power of genre filmmaking. The story begins in 1974, just one year before the country’s independence from decades of Portuguese rule. Wealthy colonists are fleeing the country as Angolan revolutionaries gradually claim their land back. A tribal girl discovers love and danger when her path crosses that of a Portuguese soldier. Another group of soldiers, completely cut off from the outside world, blindly follow the brutal orders of their commander in the name of serving their country.

But nothing stays fixed in this genre-shifting cinematic puzzle, which playfully swerves from art house drama to war film to zombie flick to escape thriller with exhilarating control. Winner of Best European Film and the Youth Jury Award at the Locarno Film Festival, TOMMY GUNS has elicited comparisons to the work of Claire Denis, Miguel Gomes, and even M. Night Shyamalan, and announces a bold and exciting new voice in Portuguese and Angolan filmmaking.

Full Review: Everything Went Fine: Film Review

Everything Went Fine: Film Review – Loud And Clear Reviews
Film Review: Everything Went Fine in François Ozon’s thought-provoking drama about an elderly man who wants to end his life.

Official synopsis: Based on the autobiographical novel by author Emmanuèle Bernheim (who had collaborated on Ozon’s screenplays for Under The Sand, Swimming Pool and Ricky), EVERYTHING WENT FINE is a dramatic change of pace for the genre-hopping director. After a debilitating stroke, 85-year-old art collector André Bernheim (Alain Resnais regular André Dussolier) demands that his daughter Emmanuèle (Sophie Marceau, beloved by French audiences since her teenage debut in the 1980 hit La Boum), help him end life on his own terms.

Faced with a painful decision, Emmanuèle, with the grudging support of her younger sister Pascale (Ozon regular Géraldine Pailhas), begins sorting through the processes and bureaucratic hurdles necessary to fulfill her father’s final wish, as she is forced to reconcile her past with a complicated, stubborn, yet charismatic man.

April 2023: New Movies In Theaters This MonthMatter Out of Place: Trailer (Icarus Films)

Official synopsis: Waste on the shores, waste on the mountains. On ocean floors and deep down in the earth. The term “matter out of place” refers to objects in a place they originally do not belong to. And there are many such objects in the places Nikolaus Geyrhalter visits for this film. In his unique imagery consisting of minutely composed pictures, the director traces immense amounts of waste across our planet. He travels from the mountain tops of Switzerland to the coasts of Greece and Albania, into an Austrian refuse incinerator and then to Nepal and the Maldives, and finally to the deserts of Nevada.

MATTER OUT OF PLACE is about human-made refuse, which is surrounding us all the time everywhere. On his journey, Geyrhalter illustrates the sheer endless struggle of people to gain control over the vast amounts of waste that we produce every single day. Collecting, shredding, burning, burying – a Sisyphean task, which ostensibly solves the global problem of rubbish that is stealthily growing.

Full Review: Other People’s Children Film Review

Other People’s Children: Film Review – Loud And Clear Reviews
Review: Rebecca Zlotowski’s step-parent drama Other People’s Children is an empathetic, heartbreaking film, and one of the best dramas of the year.

Official synopsis: In her latest film, acclaimed French filmmaker Rebecca Zlotowski (Grand Central, Planetarium, An Easy Girl) draws from her own life to depict the emotional trajectory of Rachel (Virginie Efira), a schoolteacher whose desire for a biological child seems increasingly unlikely to be fulfilled (as she’s informed by her gynecologist in a delightful cameo from director Frederick Wiseman). 

When Rachel starts a relationship with car designer Ali (Roschdy Zem), he’s slow to let her know that he’s a single father, but once she finds out, she quickly grows to love his precocious daughter, Leila (Callie Ferreira-Goncalves). The stresses and strains of close relationships between adults and children are thoughtfully examined in a drama that’s as romantic in its evocation of new love blossoming in Paris as it is clear-headed about the myriad pressures that societal expectations impose on the lives of middle-aged women, with echoes of Paul Mazursky’s An Unmarried Woman
