'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Review

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” is the second “Star Wars” film in six months and the fourth in less than 3½ years – since the Disney takeover of LucasFilm. “Solo” is the second prequel/spinoff, joining 2016’s “Rogue One”. That movie had almost entirely new characters, while this one is, of course, about the early adventures of someone fans are already quite familiar with.

Exploring Michael Haneke: Amour

Exploring Michael Haneke: Amour

With an incredible opening that calls to mind the closing shot of Cache, Michael Haneke begins his 2012 film, Amour by placing his camera on an audience as they prepare then start to listen to a piano concert. Showing the crowd as they settle into their seats then watch the performance, Haneke allows his subjects to blend into the crowd without calling attention to them. Masterfully, we are shown everyone without focusing on anyone. This beautiful humanist opening seems to communicate to the audience that we all live our existences, yet, experience the world among a collection of people that are also living individual lives. A brilliant bit of foreshadowing to his most overtly humanist film, Michael Haneke also informs the audience from the opening shot that the movie we are watching is one focused on the act of observation. Not only do we begin the journey by observing, we then continue observing our subjects, observing their life, age, and union.
