Provided that each of his two filmmaking buddies, Guillermo del Toro and Alfonso Cuaron, have each made initiatives for Netflix, we suppose it was solely a matter of time earlier than the third member of the “Three Amigos,” Alejandro González Iñárritu, made the leap. His first movie for the streaming service is BARDO, False Chronicle Of A Handful Of Truths.
The movie follows Silverio (Daniel Giménez Cacho), a famend Mexican journalist and documentary filmmaker dwelling in Los Angeles, who, after being named the recipient of a prestigious worldwide award, is compelled to return to his native nation, unaware that this easy journey will push him to an existential restrict. The folly of his recollections and fears have determined to pierce via the current, filling his on a regular basis life with a way of bewilderment and surprise.
Iñárritu and his Birdman collaborator Nicolás Giacobone wrote this one, which sees the director teaming up for the primary time with cinematographer Darius Khondji (we’re guessing Iñárritu both needed to alter issues up or Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki was busy), and marks his first movie shot in Mexico since 2000’s Amores Perros.
BARDO is headed to this yr’s Venice Worldwide Movie Competition for its world premiere, and can then hit US cinemas on 4 November (with the UK following on 18 November) earlier than its debut globally on Netflix on 16 December.
