    One Deadly Summer

    ★★★½

    There is a sweltering heat, shimmering sweat, at the very opening of L’été meurtrier (One Deadly Summer), when Elle steps into the frame. “That girl” quickly becomes the talk of the southern French town, and claims the leering eyes of most of the men. Much of what makes Isabelle Adjani smoking hot here, is what turns into an ever-evolving, multi-layered masterful display of acting. Adjani was the French star of the 1980s for sure.

    ★★★★½

    Wonder Woman

    ★★★★

    I stand up, though, to those that whine and wince about the casting of Wonder Woman, or indeed see the acquisition of such a big movie for a female director as a “brave” move. Please. Step up and take a bow Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot, then, two women so instrumental in this film’s appeal, they deserve all the merits thrown their way. And there are many already, with the glorious fall-out still to come. Supported by story-tellers Allan Heinberg…
