Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
ENEMY OF THE STATE
Dir: Tony Scott
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott ratchet up conspiracy paranoia to the nth degree as labor lawyer Will Smith unknowingly comes into possession of a video showing a crime being committed by National Security Agency chief Jon Voight. When Smith has his assets frozen and his family put in jeopardy and must go on the run, he receives help from an unlikely source: renegade surveillance expert Gene Hackman (playing a distant cousin to the role he assayed in Coppola’s THE CONVERSATION).
Put-upon family man Marcus (Martin Lawrence) and swinging bachelor Mike (Will Smith) are Miami police detectives who must not only track down a huge cache of heroin stolen from their station’s evidence room but also convince Julie (Tea Leoni), the only witness to their friend’s murder, to testify. A rip-roaringly profane action comedy, with a brilliantly depraved Tcheky Karyo as the duo’s twisted nemesis.
Dir: Claude Chabrol
Jean Poiret reprises his role as French Inspector Lavardin, who is called to provincial village to investigate a murder – only to find that one of his ex-lovers is the victim’s widow. In French with English subtitles.
