2016 New Hollywood 'Honeygiver Among the Dogs' ('Munmo Tashi Khyidron'): Film Review:

Bhutanese filmmaker Dechen Roder's first feature, bowing at Busan, revolves around a detective's investigation into the case of a missing monk and a "demoness."
A genre long associated with sex and sleaze, film noir receives a surprisingly spiritual and feminine reworking in Bhutanese filmmaker Dechen Roder's beautiful and inventive debut. Revolving around a jaded policeman's relationship with the mysterious woman implicated in the crime he's looking into, Honeygiver Among the Dogs mesmerizes with its enigmatic narrative just as its protagonist falls under the spell of his quarry.

Bowing at the Busan International Film Festival, Roder's first feature offers at once an ethereal reinvention of a long-running genre, and also a leap into territories as yet untouched among filmmakers from the small Himalayan kingdom. Along with Khyentse Norbu's Jeremy Thomas-produced Hema Hema: Sing Me A Song While I Wait — which also features in Busan after its premiere at Locarno — Honeygiver Among the Dogs provides ample evidence of a national cinema in bloom.

The hard-boiled cop here is Kinley (Jamyang Jamtsho Wangchuk), who — like all noir protagonists who came before him — enters the narrative as a somewhat alienated figure. With his uniform and his modern cellphone — through which he receives constant instructions from a faceless superior — Kinley is a peculiar individual among the people in the village where he is sent to look into a possible abduction (or even murder) of an abbess.

Locals tell Kinley to zero in on the recently vanished Choden (Sonam Tashi Choden), a young, mysterious figure who has established a reputation as a flirtatious "demoness" since she arrived in the village years ago. Reporting to his chief about this, Kinley is told he should track her down and try to befriend her to get more information about the case. Tipped off about her whereabouts, Kinley shelves his police gear, hides his identity and follows her in civilian clothes.

But it's the woman who makes the first move: Approaching him, she asks him to travel with her on foot to the capital Thimphu as her "husband," a cover that could free her from the "trouble" she is having with the police. Throughout the journey, she regales him with legends about enlightened female deities fighting social oppression — stories he, a divorced city-dweller who eyes Buddhist murals with suspicion rather than awe, dismisses as "rumors." "I'm more interested in reality," he cuts Choden off at one point.

Kinley's reality becomes much more complicated as they arrive in the city, however, as she takes flight after a few days. Delirium sets in after he suffers from repeated nightmares. Taken off the case by his concerned chief, he goes rogue to try and clear Choden's name, and in doing so reveals corruption and conspiracies around him.

Transplanting film noir aesthetics into Bhutanese locations, Roder and his DP Jigme Tenzing unleash their characters in a universe of shadows: They move about in dark rooms, run down urban back-alleys, and even vast rural outdoor spaces are rendered grey and gloomy during the daytime.

Radiant colors are deployed only in the fantasy scenes depicting Choden's tales of emancipated nuns and goddesses in history. Juxtaposing such ecstatic and admittedly exotic imagery with depictions of quotidian, modern city life, Honeygivers Among the Dogs further unveils Bhutan's new and contradictory social landscape to the world.

2016 New Hollywood 'Trolls': Film Review And News:

Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake lend their voices to this animated musical comedy from DreamWorks.
If you could take the Shrek, Happy Feet and Smurfs movies, toss them in a blender and hit the pulse button a few times, the result would be a pretty reasonable approximation of Trolls, an admittedly vibrant-looking but awfully recognizable animated musical comedy concoction (premiering at the London Film Festival this weekend ahead of its Nov. 4 domestic opening).

Taking its bouncy cue from Justin Timberlake’s shamelessly catchy hit “Can’t Stop the Feeling!,” released in early May, the DreamWorks Animation production works overtime trying to be cute and irrepressible without bothering to create characters and plotlines that are as engagingly dimensional as the textured, Day-Glo visuals.

With their candy-hued Don King hairdos, those singing-and-dancing trolls will likely appeal mainly to younger viewers. Older moviegoers might experience a cloyingly sticky sensation that isn’t caused by the soda-splattered floor beneath their feet.

Taking its cue from Danish woodcutter Thomas Dam’s Good Luck Troll dolls, which first came to pop-culture prominence during the mid-1960s, the film begins with the discovery that all is not rainbows and cupcakes for the joyous creatures, who've become mood-altering nourishment for the grumpy, ogre-like Bergens and their ruler, King Gristle (John Cleese).

Fleeing Bergen Town, the Trolls, spurred on by peppy Poppy (Anna Kendrick), relocate to the forest, where they continue their celebratory ways and hourly group hugs, much to the concern of the uber-cautious Branch (Timberlake), who worries that all that revelry will give away their hiding place.

Sure enough, the Trolls are discovered by the scheming Chef (Christine Baranski), a disgraced Bergen who absconds with a bunch of Poppy’s friends in a bid to get back in the good graces of the King’s unhappy son (Christopher Mintz-Plasse).

It’s Poppy and Branch to the rescue, with constant musical assists from covers (a la Happy Feet) of vintage Top 10 tunes like Lionel Richie’s “Hello,” Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September” and Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time.”

The numbers, while choreographed with Pop-art-infused, hippie-dippy pizzazz by co-directors Mike Mitchell (Shrek Forever After) and Walt Dohrn, serve, for the most part, as cutesy interludes rather than really advancing the plot in any unique or meaningful way.

Having collaborated on DreamWorks’ Kung Fu Panda movies, among others, writers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger demonstrate a seasoned, assured shorthand when it comes to snappy banter and bits of wacky irreverence. But they prove less adept at developing relatable characters and involving, inventively staged situations.

That deficit leaves Kendrick and Timberlake, two actors with the sort of youthful voices that lend themselves nicely to animation, with limited places to take their alter-egos.

The talents of the supporting players — including the always reliable Zooey Deschanel as a love-struck Cinderella of a Bergen scullery maid, Jeffrey Tambor as a Papa Smurf type and Gwen Stefani as Troll Village’s resident DJ — are similarly under-challenged.

While the production breaks some intriguing visual ground with its addition of felt textures and sprays of glitter to the CG toolbox, not to mention all that undulating troll hair, most of the original songs are largely forgettable.

Echoing those tunes, Trolls is content to play out an all-too-familiar refrain.
