Movie Review – Arcadia (2016)

Arcadia, 2016.

Written and Directed by Tom Large.

Starring Marc Baylis, Akie Kotabe, Sid Phoenix and Rufus Wright.

Synopsis:

One man fights to give his family a future in a world crippled by disease where medical care is controlled by a totalitarian regime.

Science Fiction over the years has often played on the notion of the Utopian society. Of course what ordinarily results from that in itself is dystopia. Either the totalitarian regime in control loses grip and the system of control fails, or indeed the Utopian ideal is only reserved to the wealthy or pre-selected. We’ve seen it with Philip K Dick, with Orwell, and pretty much any Science Fiction writer worth his salt. On the big screen the cinematic translations of the literal (sometimes based directly from literary source material) have offered the visual as well as philosophical stimulus, whilst great Sci-Fi will also represent a telling parallel

'Elementary' premiere: Introducing more classic Sherlock characters

'Elementary' premiere: Introducing more classic Sherlock characters
In the season 2 premiere of Elementary, Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) and Joan (Lucy Liu) head to London to help Sherlock’s old pal Inspector Lestrade (Sean Pertwee), who has gotten himself into a bit of trouble regarding a Rupert Murdoch-esque figure named Warren Pendry. Lestrade, of course, is one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic characters. Along the way, we also meet three more of Doyle’s creations — Inspector Hopkins (Tim McMullan), Mycroft Holmes (Rhys Ifans), a faceless Langdale Pike, and Sherlock’s London home, 221 B. Here’s what we learned about them.

Helen Mirren's queen not amused by noisy drummers

Actor playing Elizabeth II leaves stage dressed in pearls and tiara to confront musicians outside theatre

She's had some practice in issuing commands to her subjects as a queen, but it still came as a surprise to a group of drummers when Dame Helen Mirren yelled at them to be quiet while dressed in her full Queen Elizabeth II costume on Saturday night.

The 67-year-old, whose performance in The Audience won her an Olivier Award last week, left London's Gielgud Theatre to confront the troupe of performers, whose noise was disturbing the play.

As One in the Park, who were promoting their festival for gay and transgender people due to take place in east London this month, said Mirren was dressed in pearls and a tiara when she demanded the noise stop.

A statement from the festival read: "Clearly angered she shrieked 'Quiet! I'm trying to do a play in here!

The Audience – review

Gielgud, London

Well, I didn't believe in it but I was seduced by it. At least for a while. The Audience – the first surefire, unstoppable hit of the year – has been created to disarm all comers. Helen Mirren sparklingly reprises her passive-faced but steely-eyed performance as a Queen who is both stalwart and wistful. Stephen Daldry, the man who once said he would not mind being mayor of London, and who would do a spectacular job, brings to the production the giant flair that he brought to Billy Elliot and An Inspector Calls. Peter Morgan's script nods at those not enamoured of all things monarchical, suggesting that underneath the perm there is something of a lefty brain. Real live corgis are unleashed.

Still, zinging moments are not finally enough to disguise the fact that Morgan's very entertaining play is a skinny thing, a string of sketches dependent on high-grade mimicry.
