'Not on My Watch' ('Pris de court'): Film Review

7 hours ago

Ever since Taken rocked the box office back in 2008, there have been plenty of high-octane thrillers about fathers saving their children from peril in a subgenre that’s been pejoratively dubbed “daddy porn” by some critics. But what about the mommies?

In the low-key French noir Not on My Watch (Pris de court), Virginie Efira plays one such death-defying mother, stepping in to help her teenage son after he gets ensnared by a malicious Parisian gangster. It’s potentially potent stuff that never quite delivers on the thrills it promises, although writer-director Emmanuelle Cuau (Tres bien, merci) manages to insert a »

Leading Lady, the new biography of Sherry Lansing, the legendary film executive had to do something she never did during her 12 years running Paramount Pictures: relinquish control.
