A rather colourful and sensational trailer just dropped for Elton John biopic Rocketman, but can we expect another textbook and family friendly Bohemian Rhapsody?
So Green Book took away Best Picture! Seriously did not see that one coming! till quite happy with the result though. Mahershala Ali also took away Best Supporting Actor.
I’m well aware that this list is coming a little late, but better late than never. As usual, this one covers my top picks for titles released in the Czech Republic during 2018, which also includes festival screenings and those released on streaming services like Netflix. So unfortunately, The Favourite is not here (it was just released and you should definitely go and see it) and Suspiria is not here either (if it was, then it would probably be close to the top). Nevertheless, there were some impressive films that popped up in our little country last year, and some of them we even saw before the rest of the world.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a formulaic band movie that struggles to get Queen’s story off the ground in an original and captivating way, but the Live Aid finale almost makes the whole thing worthwhile – it’s that and Rami Malek’s stupendous performance that save this film.
