Films and series of the week - talked about audience flop

MOVIE (premiere 27/1)

“Babylon”

Lavish three-hour epic about Hollywood childhood with extras – wild parties with jazz, sex and drugs, luxury, misery and people covered in elephant poo. It’s all there when director Damien Chazelle tells the story of jaded star Jack (Brad Pitt) and shooting star Nellie (Margot Robbie) who get into trouble when the silent film goes into the grave and the sound film turns the entire film industry upside down.

The grand epic was a flop with audiences and was panned by critics when the film premiered in the US a few weeks ago.

“The banshees of Inisherin”.

Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson star in this original comedy-drama about male friendship set in 1920s Ireland. One friend abruptly breaks up with the other, vowing to cut off a finger every time the scorned friend tries to contact him.

Pamela Anderson talks about her life in a new Netflix documentary. Archive image.

“Pamela, a love story” (Netflix, 1/31).

Pamela Anderson retells on her own terms the story of her life as the great sex symbol of the 1990s – about Playboy, “Baywatch”, Tommy Lee and the sex film, but also about the children and the relationship with Julian Assange. But above all, it is a documentary about a sexualized media culture and a decade that feels far away.

Other premieres:

“Shotgun wedding” (Prime Video).

Jennifer Lopez stars in an action comedy about a dream wedding that turns into a nightmare when everyone involved is taken hostage.

“You people” (Netflix).
