Chasing Great  (G)   No Comps

In the mind of a champion.

Says McCaw: "I was an ordinary kid who loved playing the game of rugby and had the dream of becoming an All Black. I’ve surprised myself with what’s possible if you want something badly enough. I’ve learned a heck of a lot along the way. I’ve never been big on talking about myself but I hope that by sharing my story, people might be able to find something in it to help them achieve what they really want to."

Notes to Eternity  (M) Violence & content that may disturb

A meditation on the Israel-Palestine conflict centering on the lives and ideas of four renowned critics of Israel: Noam Chomsky, Sara Roy, Norman Finkelstein and Robert Fisk. All four have strong personal connections to the issue that traverse and transcend historical and cultural lines.

Chomsky, Roy and Finkelstein are Jewish, while Roy and Finkelstein are also the children of Holocaust survivors. Robert Fisk is a foreign correspondent based in Lebanon who has spent over thirty-five years covering conflicts in the region.

The film takes shape around their reflections and is impressionistic, eschewing a more conventional documentary style for a series of ‘notes’. Here fragmentation becomes the lingua franca of memory and identity. World War I and II, the Holocaust, the Vietnam war, Civil Rights, East Timor, the conquest of the New World, and the “fundamental bias” of the Judeo-Christian heritage all enter the frame, evoking commonalities across conflict.

Noam Chomsky is central in the film. From a profoundly Jewish background, he is remarkable for his long-standing support for Palestinian justice. One of the world’s leading public intellectuals he is naturally at home in the “dissident margins.” His pro-Israel detractors variously label him a “self-hating Jew” and a “self-hating American”; on the other side, Palestinian activists vehemently oppose his position on the return of Palestinian refugees, and his criticisms of the movement for a one-state settlement. Now in his late eighties, his involvement with this issue has been lifelong.

Filmed over a number of years in the Middle East, the United States and the United Kingdom, the film becomes an exploration of the very act of representing injustice suffered by another, and a testament to the realities of dispossession that reverberate through all narratives of colonization and forced displacement.

The Magnificent Seven  No Comps

Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt make two of The Magnificent Seven in this remake of the classic 1960s Western from director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day). Co-stars Ethan Hawke (Boyhood), Vincent D’Onofrio (TV’s Daredevil), Byund-hun Lee (I Saw the Devil), and Peter Sarsgaard (Experimenter).

With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Washington), Josh Farraday (Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Hawke), Jack Horne (D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Cake), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier, Lilin’s Brood). As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.

The characters in this new version are completely different to the ones played by Yul Brynner, Eli Wallach and Steve McQueen back in 1960. The original The Magnificent Seven was also a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, which sort-of makes this one a re-remake
