What do the two popes of the new Netflix film say? Two popes Are we exactly the same as Sherlock Holmes and the murder doll? Good stars, and unfortunately, the inability to break free of source content that doesn't matter at all.
Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock Holmes and the latest A child's play restart both threads of unity as they discover new takes on the familiar object, and then they experience a content attachment. The same goes for, almost Two popes docudrama directed by Fernando Meirelles (The city of God, Gardenerabout the passing of the lamp from Pope Benedict XVI (Anthony Hopkins) to Pope Francis (Jonathan Pryce) in 2013. It is impossible to talk about the Catholic Church without talking about sexual harassment and financial misconduct, and even though the topics have been touched on. , they passed quickly. Meirelles is so indifferent to church history that the connection and attraction between the two men seems to be inconsistent.
Benedict does not oppose change, while Francis believes it is necessary. When the film debuted – in 2005, during a meeting of the pope nominated by Benedict – the men in cloth looked uncertain, as votes cast for Francis, then Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina. In the bathroom, Benedict, then Joseph Ratzinger, asks Beroglio what song he is singing. "Dancing Queen" is Bergogio's answer. Ratzinger looks frustrated. When, in 2013, Bergoglio was called to the pope's summer residence to speak to Benedict – Bergoglio wishes to discuss his retirement, while Benedict wishes Bergoglio to succeed him as pope – that relationship seemed to last.
This strange couple is very flexible as the two men work through, or at least try to understand, their opposing nature, and the effect their chosen path has had on their faith. Bergoglio makes friends wherever he goes, stops at shows to watch football games and leaves a cardinal uniform in an illegal outfit. Benedict's garden manager Bellgoglio for herbs when he left the summer residence, a surprise act that Benedict shows has never been offered to him. Benedict's faith and flexibility have set him apart.
The film contains real-world footage and often falls in to a text-like look – the colors look as natural as possible, and the camera sometimes shakes as if we're really following these two people. That virtue makes him one of the two titanic religious figures, or that should also, on the other hand, is because the conversations we see play out maybe it didn't
Iannucci's work is able to manage both lights and critically evaluate British and American politics even though he has created dozens of fictional characters, Two popes it is weakened in opposition to the real life of its subjects. The film's healthy skin is dedicated to telling Berglio's life, and while the flashbacks allow Meirelles to experiment with creative techniques by making more black films – black and white, and feature flexibility – it pulls down and down the film. Seeing these scenes play out sounds awkward; Meirelles has two legends to catch, and Pryce no longer needs that kind of narrative crutch.
Still, it's a great time to spend time with Pryce and Hipkins as they bring out theology. Pryce is warm and sympathetic, when Hopkins, though cold, firm, emphasizes his sense of humor about his German heritage ("It's a German joke, it doesn't have to be funny," he said one day), coming across as sharp and non-rational in exchange. He feels what he wants to hear from Beroglio, sometimes literally pulling him out – sticking out his headphones on a helicopter – to prevent what he doesn't want to admit.
The incident played over the credits is considering another incident, this time not by a tough debate but by two men watching the World Cup. Have fun and drink together, and have fun. It is a moment that removes their titles and their history, real and imagined. In a short time, they are only two men, rather than two popes.
