PETER JACKSON'S DOCUMENTARY — THE BEATLES: GET BACK

There was once a British band called The Beatles. They forever changed rock 'n' roll, pop music, and global culture. Here, the estimable Peter Jackson presents The Beatles' best effort at writing and recording an album within three weeks, before performing live for the first time in three years. This is a pivotal film that dispatches the Beatles's songwriting and rehearsal process in beautiful lush clarity thanks to the preservation of 56 hours of previously unseen documentary footage shot on film. "The Beatles: Get Back" opens in America on November 25th, 2021. This film is a big deal event. Check it out.

JANE PAR CHARLOTTE

Jane By Charlotte': Cannes Review | Reviews | Screen

"With the tremor of time passing by, Charlotte Gainsbourg started to look at her mother Jane Birkin in a way she never did, both overcoming a shared sense of reserve. Through the camera lens, they expose themselves to one another, begin to step back, leaving space for a mother-daughter relationship."
