Week from April 6th to April 13th

"Warrior", Bruce Lee's kung fu series

Kung-Fu, corruption and machination! Warrior is a 48-year-old project that has sprouted in Bruce Lee's mind two years before his death. An unfinished project, on a martial arts expert, caught in the Tongan War, a conflict in which various Chinese mafia clans violently opposed each other in the Western Great West at the end of the 19th century. The project does not succeed, but an ersatz is born, the series Kung Fu, with David Carradine. An unfinished project that her daughter, Shannon, decided to bring on a small screen thanks to the good care of Jonathan Tropper (Banshee) and Justin Lin (Fast and Furious). Warrior follows Ah Sahm (Andrew Koji, who seems to be inhabited by Bruce Lee), martial arts prodigy, who becomes the henchman of one of the most powerful flip flops in Chinatown in San Francisco. Warrior mixes choreographed anthology fights with the Tarantino to a stylized pageant of the Chinatown's shallows way Gangs of New York.

"Risk", the portrait of the controversial Julian Assange

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, was
arrested this Thursday at the Embassy of Ecuador in London. He is being held at Belmarsh Prison in south-east London. Laura Poitras, the American director awarded an Oscar in 2014 for Citizenfour, his film about Edward Snowden spent six years filming the whistleblower and his entourage. Presented at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016, Risk follows step by step the fight of Julian Assange, the leak of top secret documents on WikiLeaks until the escape of the whistleblower at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London through the revelations made by the soldier Manning. If the treatment of Risk, available on Netflix, is not as brilliant as that of Citizenfour, this documentary allows to have a clear and precise panorama of the case
WikiLeaks and better understand one of the most controversial figures of the twenty-first century.

Clit Revolution explores sexuality as a source of empowerment

A quarter of 15-year-old girls are unaware of the clitoris, according to a 2016 report by the High Council for Equality. What inspire Elvire Duvelle-Charles and Sarah Constantin, two activists who became known with their parody feminist clip Valentine's Day Orelsan, a project to deconstruct myths and lift taboos around the female sex. Born on Instagram, Clit Revolution is now a web documentary series broadcast every other Thursday since March 7 on France tv slash. Phallocracy, techniques of masturbations, excision or even female porn, the clitoris, organ of feminine pleasure, becomes over the episodes a source of empowerment.

"Cléo de 5 à 7" by Agnès Varda did not take a ride

Agnès Varda, legendary figure of the New Wave, went on the night of March 28 to 29. Among the fifty films she made, Cleo from 5 to 7, released in 1962, a gem of rigor and inventiveness, has not taken a wrinkle and is available until April 27 on Arte + 7. The film takes place on the first day of summer in real time, the June 21, 1961, from 17h to 18h30. He follows Cléo's wandering in Paris, a young woman who fears cancer and awaits her diagnosis. With its staggering mobility, its insolent formal freedom, and the discreet and joyful grace that characterizes the cinema of Varda, one breathes and throbs at the rhythm of the moods of the overwhelming Cléo. A masterpiece, subtly feminist, surprisingly modern, set to music by Michel Legrand.

"The Bold Type" is back

Like its fictitious magazine revamped for millenials, The Bold Type a seduces young adults by delivering hypercontemporary neofeminist messages around anorgasmia, violence against women and body positivism. Katie Stevens (Jane Sloan), Aisha Dee (Kat Edison), Meghann Fahy (Sutton Brady), the trio of heroines of this Sex & The City modern, have made their comeback this Wednesday on Amazon Prime Video, to the rhythm of a new episode every week. In short, a small dose of empowerment (with a touch of glamor) in a society (still too much) patriarchal.
