今晚看电视: 优雅的, raunchy new French thriller

A classy, raunchy Parisian noir, 设置 1899 and beginning with the sex-induced death of President Félix Faure and a flurry of brutal antisemitic violence. This is the volatile backdrop to what seems like an unrelated murder mystery as a woman’s body is found floating down the Seine. The case falls to principled young cop Antoine Jouin (Jérémie Laheurte) – but will he uncover a wider conspiracy in the process? A promising mixture of high intrigue and low cunning. 菲尔·哈里森(Phil Harrison)

The hoofers have barely touched the dancefloor and it’s time for movie week. Costumes, wigs and song choices can do a lot of the work in the legendary themed bonanza, but there are plenty of contenders to make it as fabulous as the time Ed Balls went full green-faced Jim Carrey for a samba. 汉娜·维迪耶(Hannah Verdier)

The Suez crisis is hardly forgotten since there’s a “new Suez” every few years; nevertheless, Robinson looks back on the major foreign policy fiasco of the 1950s with something of a fresh perspective.

No Sudden Move
周六, 11是, 8下午, Sky Cinema Premiere

Another playful caper from Ocean’s Eleven’s Steven Soderbergh, written by Bill & Ted scribe Ed Solomon and filled with enough crosses and double-crosses to amuse most thriller fans. Don Cheadle, Benicio Del Toro and Kieran Culkin play small-time hoods in 1954 Detroit hired to force an accountant (David Harbour) to get a file from his boss’s safe. Naturally, this document is merely the MacGuffin that sets a deadly game in motion, all shot with a distorting wide-angle lens and at jaunty angles intended to befuddle. 西蒙·沃德尔
