The network is rebranded EdTV when Cynthia believes she's found her subject, Ed Pekurny, a native Texas hayseed, who fits the two main criteria that she is looking for in the person: he is easy on the eyes, and he has what seems to be a potential trainwreck of a life in that he he is thirty-one years old, spends most of his time hanging out at the bar, and has no ambition beyond his longtime dead end job as a clerk in a video store.

Director: Samuel BenchetritWriters: Samuel Benchetrit, Gábor RassovStars: Isabelle Huppert, Gustave Kervern, Valeria Bruni TedeschiSummary: Against the backdrop of a dilapidated apartment building in the heart of the French urban jungle, stories of social anonymity, loneliness, and the painful effect of time's penetrating caress become intertwined with selfless acts of kindness, solidarity, and an odd encounter with the paradox. After experiencing firsthand life's cruel irony, the parsimonious tenant, Sternkowitz, concocts a spur-of-the-moment plan to make a good first impression on a lonely night-shift nurse, relying on his old Polaroid camera. In the meantime, the insecure movie star, Jeanne Meyer, stands powerless before the unstoppable force of youthful frankness, as her genuinely concerned next-door neighbour, Charly, becomes a beacon of self-confidence, and her improbable mentor. Then, out of the blue, the disoriented American astronaut, John McKenzie, winds up in kindly Madame Hamida's flat and realises that the mysteries of the cosmos can lead to a beautiful bond. Can there be tenderness in a bleak world? Written by Nick Riganas

Director: Adam McKayWriters: Charles Randolph, Adam McKayStars: Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan GoslingSummary: Three separate but parallel stories of the U.S mortgage housing crisis of 2005 are told. Michael Burry, an eccentric ex-physician turned one-eyed Scion Capital hedge fund manager, has traded traditional office attire for shorts, bare feet and a Supercuts haircut. He believes that the US housing market is built on a bubble that will burst within the next few years. Autonomy within the company allows Burry to do largely as he pleases, so Burry proceeds to bet against the housing market with the banks, who are more than happy to accept his proposal for something that has never happened in American history. The banks believe that Burry is a crackpot and therefore are confident in that they will win the deal. Jared Vennett with Deutschebank gets wind of what Burry is doing and, as an investor believes he too can cash in on Burry's beliefs. An errant telephone call to FrontPoint Partners gets this information into the hands of Mark Baum, an idealist who is fed up with the corruption in the ... Written by Huggo

La série raconte la vie quotidienne de lycéens que l’on devine anglais par leur accent, la conduite à gauche mais, ici, rien n’est affirmé. Le lieu et l’époque n’ont pas d’importance. Les habits, les vélos, les disques vinyles d’Otis donnent l’impression d’être remontés dans le temps mais qu’est-ce qui ressemble plus à un adolescent des années 2010 qu’un adolescent des années soixante-dix. Leurs problèmes sont les mêmes. Leurs moyens de communication sont un peu différents mais les nouvelles technologies ne sont pas très présentes, dans Sex Education, surtout au début.

Ce qui fait une grande partie de l’intérêt que l’on peut porter à cette série c’est que les personnages sont très attachants. On les aime. Comme dans la plupart des fictions qui se déroulent au lycée, on retrouve le grand costaud pas malin et un peu brute, le groupe de petites connes qu’on a envie de gifler. Mais quand ces personnages sont pris à part, ils nous montrent plus de profondeur et moins de manichéisme qu’on aurait pu le craindre.

Les acteurs sont aussi très très bons, à commencer par le jeune héros, Asa Buterfield, qui a bien grandi depuis Hugo Cabret et Gillian Anderson qui est géniale en mère un peu envahissante, croqueuse d’hommes. Elle était déjà étonnante et fascinante dans The Fall, il y a peu. Là, en plus, elle est drôle.

Cette série n’est bien sûr pas à mettre devant tous les yeux et dans toutes les oreilles, il est bien-sûr, comme son nom l’indique, beaucoup question de sexe. Certaines scènes sont un peu crues.

Pour finir, parlons musique. Comme souvent dans les très bonnes séries, la bande originale est vraiment bien. De la bonne musique anglaise, il semblerait, mais je ne suis pas un expert. La musique que l’on entend, quand les scènes se déroulent dans les couloirs du lycée, fait penser à celle d’un jeu Wii. Est-ce la preuve que cela n’est qu’un jeu, que rien n’est vrai : https://soundcloud.com/gigadarkwood/wii-music-bass-boosted.

The Big Short est un film d’Adam McKay de 2015. Il raconte comment certains farfelus de la finance se sont aperçus bien avant tout le monde qu’un crash économique lié aux subprimes allait se produire et comment ils en ont profité.

Pour rappel, la crise des subprimes est l’effondrement de la bulle spéculative sur les emprunts immobiliers aux États-Unis. Les banques proposaient des prêts qu’elles savaient difficilement remboursables au regard de la situation économique des emprunteurs mais comme elles revendaient ces prêts à d’autres au travers de montages financiers, elles se foutaient de savoir que les emprunteurs ne pourraient pas rembourser. L’arrogance de ces spéculateurs et l’arnaque que sont les agences de notation ont masqué la fragilité de ce système économique.

Le film est parfois dur à suivre quand on ne connait pas trop le monde de la finance, comme c’est mon cas, mais il explique suffisamment bien les choses pour que nous en comprenions la substance. Le rythme est rapide, le suspens donne envie de savoir ce qui va se passer pour les protagonistes des trois histoires racontées en parallèle.

L’idée de faire intervenir des personnes connues qui expliquent, face caméra, quelques termes financiers est assez maline. Si des stars Hollywoodiennes comme Margot Robbie ou Selena Gomez comprennent ce qu’elles racontent, tout le monde peut comprendre.

Le casting est trois étoiles : Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell et Brad Pitt. Brad Pitt est également producteur via sa société Plan B qui a régulièrement fait des choix ambitieux par le passé (Moonlight, The Lost City of Z, Twelve Years a Slave, etc.). Ce film rappelle, dans le même genre, Margin Call de J.C. Chandor qui raconte cette crise dans une sorte de huis clos qui se déroule en une nuit. Le film est magistral et le casting est, ici, quatre étoiles…
