AT THE MOVIES #629 – “AN ARMY OF TOP-NOTCH ARTISTIC PEOPLE”
Simon Morris looks at three films, only two of which are set in 1952. Mahana looks back at the rural childhood of both writer Witi Ihimaera and director Lee Tamahori. Hail Caesar! is a love-letter to the heyday of the Hollywood Studios as only Joel and Ethan Coen can deliver it. Meanwhile Hollywood’s current favourite hit-maker Michael Bay makes – for him – a low budget independent film, 13 hours: The secret soldiers of Benghazi.
