Issued on: Modified:
The Academy Awards embrace some of 2022’s blockbusters in this year’s nominations, with “Top Gun: Maverick”, “Avatar: The Way of Water” and “Elvis” in the running. Critic Ben Croll tells us more about the frontrunner “Everything Everywhere All At Once”, as Michelle Yeoh dazzles in this sci-fi one-off. We also discuss Cate Blanchett’s mesmerising performance in Todd Field’s latest film “Tar”, which explores power, morality and misconduct.
We then check out “Return to Seoul”, Davy Chou’s cinematic journey into blended identities as the Franco-Cambodian filmmaker ricochets between South Korea and France.
Finally, My French Film Festival brings the very best of France’s cinematic output to the world, with an innovative online platform.
