Every day, find the program of films and series to see on TV. Today: a cult thriller worn by Steve McQueen, a touching and subtle story, a classic SF, a western by the brothers Coen and Dany Boon to mock hypochondria.
Bullitt by Peter Yates with Steve McQueen, Jacqueline Bisset (France 5, 8:55 p.m.): “Like a Harry Callahan, a Paul Kersey or a Jimmy” Popeye “Doyle, this Frank Bullitt dynamited the US thriller at the turn of the 1960s and 1970s. This police lieutenant hiding behind his quickdraw cool a certain uneasiness is masterfully interpreted by the charismatic Steve McQueen. Also to his credit, this legendary car chase in the heart of San Francisco, a real piece of bravery for the time. ” Guillaume Martin
Le Majordome de Lee Daniels with Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey (Ciné + Emotion, 1:30 p.m.): “A touching and subtle account of the difficult journey of this Butler, aptly interpreted by Forest Whitaker. The film takes us through American history through eight successive Presidents at the White House, while dealing with oppression and discrimination of African-Americans over the decades. The only regret, the film, shunned by the Oscars, would have deserved a reward. ” Pascal Muscarnera
Blade Runner by Ridley Scott with Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer (OCS Choc, 3:05 p.m.): “A bewitching, dreamlike, entertaining classic of SF mixed with a philosophical reflection on the notion of humanity. This power of fascination can also be explained by the mastery of Ridley Scott, the superb characters devoid of any manichaeism portrayed by Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer and Sean Young, and with this striking aesthetic inspired by the film noir. ” Guillaume Martin
True Grit by Ethan Coen, Joel Coen with Jeff Bridges, Hailee Steinfeld (Arte, 8:55 p.m.): “If it is not one of the best Coen films, True Grit remains a solid western which shows how comfortable the two brothers are in all genres. The characters are worked, the landscapes magnificent (special mention to scenes where it snows) and the simple but captivating intrigue. Jeff Bridges is perfect in alcoholic Marshal, just like Hailee Steinfeld as determined girl, Josh Brolin in bad villain and Matt Damon in endearing boob (which brings a lot of humor to the film ). ” Laurent Schenck
Dany Boon’s Supercondriaque with Dany Boon, Kad Merad (Movie + Premier, 1:30 p.m.): “By making a mockery of hypochondria and all of our little everyday phobias, Dany Boon does it again in transgenerational, unifying and so vulgar humor. And this thanks to an alchemy found with his sidekick Kad Merad and a gallery of supporting roles that it is impossible to catch the flu (Valérie Bonneton, Jérôme Commandeur, Stéphane De Groodt…). In short, “Supercondriaque” is a comedy that should be reimbursed by Social Security! ” Guillaume Martin
