The Hunting Party (Na Sombra do Caçador)
Starring Richard Gere, Terrence Howard, Jesse Eisenberg, James Brolin, Diane Kruger, Joy Bryant and Dylan Baker.
TV News reporter Simon Hunt (Richard Gere) and cameraman Duck (Terrence Howard) have worked together in the world's hottest war zones: from Bosnia to Iraq, from Somalia to El Salvador. Together they have dodged bullets, filed incisive reports and collected Emmy awards. Then one terrible day in a Bosnian village everything changes. During a live broadcast on national television, Simon has a meltdown. After that, Duck is promoted and Simon just disappears. Five years later Duck returns to Sarajevo with rookie reporter Benjamin (Jesse Eisenberg) to cover the fifth anniversary of the end of the war. Simon shows up, a ghost from the past, with the promise of a world exclusive. He convinces Duck that he knows the whereabouts of Bosnia's most wanted war criminal "The Fox." Armed only with spurious information, Simon, Duck and Benjamin embark on a dark and dangerous mission that takes them deep into hostile territory. It's the scoop of a lifetime, but will they live to report it?

A Crime (Um Crime)
Starring Harvey Keitel, Emmanuelle Beart and Norman Reedus.
The devastated life of a man haunted by the unsolved murder of his beloved wife is strangely complicated by the mysterious neighbour who loves him from afar in this dark noir thriller. Vincent (Reedus)' wife has suffered a most brutal fate, and these days the once happy New Yorker is but a frozen shell of his former self. Vincent is not a man unloved, however, because although he may currently be unaware of her feelings for him, his neighbor Alice (Béart) knows in her heart that she and Vincent were meant to be together. All that needs to happen to make Vincent recognize her love is for the grieving widower to finally be liberated from his tragic past, and Alice is willing to go to any lengths necessary in order to make this happen. If Vincent was finally to find the man responsible for his wife's death, he could finally be free to open his heart to Alice. When Alice hails a cab driven by lonely New York soul Roger (Keitel), the gears of the scheming woman's elaborate plan are slowly set into motion despite the ignorance of both the naive cabbie, and the sombre object of her delusional affections.

Lust, Caution (Sedução, Conspiração)
Starring Tony Leung, Chiu Wai, Tang Wei and Joan Chen.
Shanghai, 1942. The World War II Japanese occupation of this Chinese city continues in force. Mrs. Mak, a woman of sophistication and means, walks into a café, places a call, and then sits and waits. She remembers how her story began several years earlier, in 1938 China. She is not in fact Mrs. Mak, but shy Wong Chia Chi (Tang Wei). With WWII underway, Wong has been left behind by her father, who has escaped to England. As a freshman at university, she meets fellow student Kuang Yu Min (Wang Leehom). Kuang has started a drama society to shore up patriotism. As the theater troupe's new leading lady, Wong realizes that she has found her calling, able to move and inspire audiences - and Kang. He convenes a core group of students to carry out a radical and ambitious plan to assassinate a top Japanese collaborator, Mr. Yee (Tony Leung). Each student has a part to play; Wong will be Mrs. Mak, who will gain Yee's trust by befriending his wife (Joan Chen) and then draw the man into an affair. Wong transforms herself utterly inside and out, and the scenario proceeds as scripted - until an unexpected fatal twist spurs her to flee. Three years later, with no end in sight for the occupation, Wong, having emigrated to Hong Kong, goes through the motions of her existence. Much to her surprise, Kuang re-enters her life. Now part of the organized resistance, he enlists her to again become Mrs. Mak in a revival of the plot to kill Yee, who as head of the collaborationist secret service has become even more a key part of the puppet government. As Wong reprises her earlier role, and is drawn ever closer to her dangerous prey, she finds her very identity being pushed to the limit.
Avec Jean Dujardin, Laurent Lucas, Agnès Blanchot.
Brisé par le viol et le meurtre de sa fille de dix ans, un capitaine de la brigade criminelle (Jean Dujardin) est obsédé à l’idée que l’homme qui croupit en prison (Laurent Lucas, impressionnant) n’est peut-être pas le véritable assassin. A l’insu de son épouse et en dépit des avertissements de ses collègues, il entreprend de mener une contre-enquête… Coscénariste de 36, Quai des Orfèvres, Franck Mancuso, est, à l’instar d’Olivier Marchal, un ancien flic. Vingt ans à la brigade des stups l’ont nourri d’intrigues policières, qu’il a d’abord éprouvées dans la saga du Commissaire Moulin avant de passer à la réalisation pour le cinéma en 2007. Son souci d’authenticité est manifeste ce polar psychologique cru et sombre, qui dépeint la descente aux enfers d’un homme brisé et assoiffé de vengeance. Jean Dujardin, à mille lieues de Brice de Nice ou OSS 117, se révèle très convaincant dans la peau de ce personnage solitaire et mutique. Mais en conjuguant le polar et le fait-divers tragique, et qui plus est autour de la mort d’un enfant, le film de Franck Mancuso met constamment mal à l’aise, et dérive parfois vers le glauque. Le retournement de situation final, totalement immoral, (même si très efficace), achève de le rendre très dérangeant.
