Event of the month: The Terminal ListJuly 1

If there’s one thing SVoD platforms like Netflix or Prime Video love, it’s testosterone action movies or series with big stars at the top of the bill. Last born of its kind at Amazon, The Terminal List features the inevitable Chris Pratt as a navy seal back home after an operation gone wrong. Shaken by the event, the soldier struggles to remember the exact sequence of events, to the point of asking serious questions about his degree of guilt in this story. He will quickly understand that he is being targeted by superior forces that could well endanger him and his loved ones.

We will be happy to see: The Lost City of Zthe 15th of July

Another exciting sub-genre, the jungle film, in which the characters are most often driven mad by their epic journey into the unknown, brings together a slew of excellent films like Apocalypse Now, Aguirre, the wrath of God or, more recently, Onoda. The Lost City of Z is a proud representative of this type of work mixing extreme conditions, psychological excesses and inexhaustible faith in the final discovery. James Gray’s feature film tells the story of Percy Fawcett, an English explorer who set out to find a lost city in the heart of the Amazon, at the very beginning of the 20th century. As often, the adventure is not the only interest of this story. The Lost City of Z narrates the destiny of a man wanting to cleanse the honor of his family, even if it means moving away dangerously, but also the addiction to the adrenaline of discovery, which makes explorers melancholy as soon as they move away from the jungle. Carried by Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson, the film is fascinating from start to finish, and magnificently directed by a James Gray in top form.
