I enjoyed James Mangold‘s Ford v Ferrari. I don’t know if I enjoyed it as much as the Academy, who nominated it for several Oscars. But I mostly dug its old school charms, its intense racing scenes, and the work from leads Matt Damon and Christian Bale. Ford v Ferrari is now on Digital, 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD, and the release comes with several behind-the-scenes featurettes. We’re debuting a snippet of one above, focused on the fist-fight that breaks out between Damon and Bale’s characters.
Here’s a full list of special features included on the release:The 24 Hour Le Mans: Recreating the Course Featurette – Discover how the climactic race of the film was achieved, from recreating the track to capturing and editing all the action. Pre-Vis: Daytona & Le Mans Races – These animated pre-visualization sequences worked as a roadmap for filmmakers throughout production.

Matt and Christian: The Conversation iTunes Extras exclusive – Sit down with Christian Bale and Matt Damon for an intimate reflection on the making of the film.
Ford v Ferrari is the true story “about Ford Motor Company’s attempt to create the world’s fastest car. American car designer Carroll Shelby Damon and the fearless British-born driver Ken Miles Bale, together battled corporate interference and the laws of physics to build a revolutionary race car and take on Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966.”
At once both an unsettlingly accurate simulation of what it's like to love someone with dementia, and also a strikingly believable conception of what it's like to live as someone with dementia, Florian Zeller's “The Father” envisions senility as a house of mirrors in which everyone loses sight of themselves. Adapted from Zeller's award-winning play of the same name, and directed with a firm hand by the playwright himself, this M.C. Escher drawing of a movie chips away at the austerity of the Euro-dramas that inform its style until every shot betrays the promise of its objectivity, and reality itself becomes destabilized.
“The Father” is a slippery film in which even the most basic information can be vaporized in the span of a single cut, but there's no ambiguity to the fact that Anthony Hopkins plays the title role although it might be worth noting that the character's name has been changed from Andre to Anthony, a self-reflexive detail that adds a crunchy meta core to one of the movie's most harrowing moments. Anthony is not well, but even that much isn't clear at first. For better or worse he still has the vim and vigor of a much younger man, but his mind is a leaky ship in search of a lighthouse surrounded by jagged rocks.
We're first introduced to Anthony as he sits in his posh London flat and listens to classical music with an impish grin of recognition plastered across his face: the Platonic ideal of a wealthy retired Brit. Alas, the water is troubled when his daughter Anne a bubbly and tender Olivia Colman drops by with some bad news: She's moving to Paris to live with her boyfriend, and she'll have to place Anthony in a home if he continues to scare off the live-in aides who look after him. “I don't need anyone!” the old man barks, a little flash of Lear cracking through his manic demeanor, either refusing or unable to admit that he's lost track of himself.
Later — though when exactly is hard to say in an temporally cyclical film that unfolds like a cross between “Amour” and the video game “P.T.” — Anthony finds a man Mark Gatiss sitting in his study and reading a newspaper like he owns the place. And maybe he does. The man insists that he's Anne's husband, that Anthony is a temporary guest in their flat, and that his wife hasn't thought to mention that she's running off to Paris with another man; the sadistically giddy delight that Anthony takes in sharing that “information” is both a rare spot of humor, and an ominous sign of someone who's been stripped of everything but his cruelty.
But the joke is on us. While Zeller's austere compositions have already conditioned the audience to accept the cold truth of each shot — and invited us to look at Anthony through the privileged lens...

Release Date: 2019
Director: Lulu Wang
Cast: Awkwafina, Tzi Ma, Diana Lin, Zhao Shuzhen, Lu Hong, Jiang Yongbo
Lulu Wang‘s heartfelt, emotional dramedy proved that Awkwafina has more range than we were giving her credit for. The actress, primarily known for comedy, turns in a mostly dramatic performance, and what a great performance it is. Awkwafina plays Billi, a Chinese-American woman who returns to China when she learns her beloved grandmother Zhao Shu-zhen is dying. Custom dictates that the family keep the impending death a secret – something Billi is not comfortable with, but goes along with anyway. This premise could’ve descended into generic indie drama territory, but Wang’s script is so sharp – loaded with small, yet powerful moments – that The Farewell packs an unexpected punch.

Release Date: 1973
Genre: Crime Drama
Director: Sidney Lumet
Cast: Al Pacino, Waldo Salt, Norman Wexler
One of the great New York crime dramas, Sidney Lumet‘s Serpico stars Al Pacino as Frank Serpico, an undercover cop who seems to be the only person on the entire police force who doesn’t take bribes. This causes Serpico’s fellow officers to be mighty ticked-off at him, and things only get worse when he tries to expose the corruption. Pacino gives one of his most iconic performances here, and we get to watch the great actor as he takes the happy-go-lucky Serpico who first starts out on the force, and then slowly turns him into a more and more disillusioned man.
