AT THE MOVIES #976 (July 24)    GENRE-FICATION

 

Simon Morris wonders if genre is always a good guide to a movie’s quality.   Just because you usually like that sort of film…  

 

 

Horizon:  An American saga – Chapter 1 is a typically epic Kevin Costner (Dances with wolves) western – at three hours it’s not even halfway finished apparently.   Written, produced and directed by Costner, it also features Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road), Sienna Miller (American sniper) and Sam Worthington (Avatar).

 

 

 

Longlegs is a hugely popular, serial killer horror film.   A sensation on social media, it’s reignited the career of Nicolas Cage as the titular villain – with a voice inspired by his mother!   Also stars Blair Underwood (TV’s Elsbeth) and Maika Monroe (It follows).

 

 

 

And from the French Film Festival, Divertimento, based on a real-life young woman from the Parisian projects who became one of France’s great woman conductors.   “Divertimento” is the name of Zahia Ziousani’s own orchestra.
