The producers of Scream, the latest in the slasher movie franchise that began in 1996, can’t really blame the timing of their movie’s release in the UK-there’s a knife crime among young people at an amazing level.

Nonetheless, the victims of numerous enthusiastic slashes in Scream are primarily teens and twenties, and perhaps even murderers, but of course not until Act III.

The fact that the movie Swath is also played for laughter makes the timing even more unfortunate. Maybe it doesn’t matter what’s happening in the real world. After all, this is just entertainment. But don’t underestimate the possibility that it will be a problem.

The 1996 film, also known as Scream, replayed its original role with Courteney Cox, Neve Campbell, and David Arquette. Like the original, this photo tries to stab the cake and eat it. .. .. Sending out the slasher genre, accepting it enthusiastically with extremely cruel violence.

Once again, the loose killer in the town of Woodsboro wears a mask inspired by Edvard Munch’s painting The Scream. He (or she) is known as a ghostface, her (or his) identity is repeatedly the subject of winkwink references, and Arquette’s retired cop Dewey tells young people in Ghostface’s sights. And, by extension, that is “always the interest of love.”

In this case, love’s interest is Ritchie (played by Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid’s son Jack Quaid), whose girlfriend Sam (Melissa Barrera) could be the cause of a vicious knife attack on her. Sister Tara (Jenna Ortega) begins the story, hiding the secret of a family. By the way, Tara is a fan of horror movies, and the writer can work with the Babadook, the witch, it follows, the cute mention of Psycho.

It’s bold and reminiscent of a good chiller to the chiller audience, but it seems that the screenings I attended seemed to be well-approved, and there’s no doubt that Scream will confidently roam. That may be the reason for exaggerating all the self-referential irony. Like the killer himself (or herself), it just doesn’t know when to stop.

Not everyone wants to invest 94 minutes in this movie, but those who do will understand why and how it ends.

Andrea Arnold is in her striking feature-length documentary on a dairy farm somewhere in the south of England, where she gives birth, is milked, chews a cow, and follows the life of a cow named Luma when she finally dies. I know exactly where to stop a cow.

Arnold’s last movie was the amazing American Honey of 2016. Big Little Lies was a hit when she directed an episode on television.

She clearly feels that there are some small lies about the British dairy industry. Her film has a clear vegan agenda.

But whether you agree or disagree with it, it’s a well-crafted documentary (created over four years), with sounds such as barking, licking, and chewing as important as the spectacle. I got the impression that Arnold didn’t mind the smell either. You will be grateful for not having it.

Sound is the driving force behind Memoria, an unstable and bizarre film starring Tilda Swinton as Jessica by Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul. It rings from the core of the earth. “

Many other things don’t happen, and what doesn’t happen doesn’t happen very slowly. Jessica crossed the city square, vaguely interested in stray dogs, and timed the scene of sitting by a tree. It lasts a full 3 minutes.

Others have rhapsody about Memoria, but I find it almost impossible to engage.

That said, the peculiar Swinton is perfectly cast and gives her pretty much everything.
