Cinema is not only escape and entertainment, but also culture.
So for tonight we intend to inform you, within the TV programming of free-to-air and satellite channels, pop films but signed by great contemporary authors.
They range from Once Upon a Time in…Hollywood by Quentin Tarantino (with Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie) to Burn After Reading by brothers Ethan and Joel Coen (with George Clooney and Frances McDormand), up to Watchmen by Zack Snyder (with Malin Akerman and Carla Gugino).
