A Cure for Life by Gore Verbinski with Dane DeHaan, Jason Isaacs (OCS Max, 8:40 p.m.): “Even if he gets lost a bit in a convoluted plot, Gore Verbinski weaves an agonizing and anxiety-provoking supernatural thriller. Peering towards Scorsese’s Shutter Island side, A Cure for Life offers a demented hallucinatory spectacle, magnified by the precise staging by the filmmaker and the performance of its main actor, Dane DeHaan. The first 30 minutes are absolutely captivating, taking us to the depths of Switzerland in a heavy atmosphere, sublimated by the masterful score of Benjamin Wallfisch. We will regret just the last part of the film, too grand-guignolesque. Special mention to the young Mia Goth, mysteriously dark in the role of a strange patient. ” Vincent formica
The SK1 Affair of Frédéric Tellier with Raphaël Personnaz, Nathalie Baye (Paris Première, 10:55 p.m.): “A dense and richly documented reconstruction of the hunt for the killer in eastern Paris which is reminiscent of the cinematographic treatment that David Fincher had reserved for the elusive” Zodiac “. This is to say the level! Interpreted by Raphaël Personnaz, Nathalie Baye and Olivier Gourmet with the sobriety that such a subject requires, this fascinating thriller also tells us a lot about the evolution of working methods that took place at 36 Quai des Orfèvres in the 1990s. ” Guillaume Martin
Rod Lurie’s Last Castle with Robert Redford, James Gandolfini (Ciné + Premier, 10:45 p.m.): “An extremely cliché prison film that tries to resemble Frank Darabont’s Escapees. The prison director is a tyrant and the inmate hero played by Robert Redford has all the qualities in the world …” Laurent Schenck
