Memories of a murderer Tenet Dinner with crime - Knives out Return to crime The Glorias Blackbird Crown Vic

Memories of a murderer

The award-winning director Bong Joon-ho, known for films like Parasite and Snowpiercer, lands on Sky Cinema with his "old glory": Memories of a murderer, a 2003 film that returns to the fore in grand style with all its power . Memories of Murder brings to the screen the filmic transposition of atrocious events that really took place in Korea between 1986 and 1991, concerning the murders perpetrated by what is considered to be the first serial killer in Korean history. Bong Joon-ho's film was screened again in February 2020, following the great success of Parasite, and now it will be possible to access this title thanks to Sky Cinema, on Sunday 4 July, on Cinema Due.

The film by the Korean director starts from the discovery of a woman's body in a drainage channel in the small town of Gyunggi. Detectives Park Du-man and Cho Yong-gu arrive to investigate the crime, but they seem to lack the necessary skills to solve the mystery, which thickens more and more when a second body is found. To their aid, the detective Seo Tae-yun from Seoul arrives who, through the elements found, discovers that the crimes were committed by the same hand, that of a serial killer. A thriller with a strongly dramatic tone that does not disdain, however, from time to time, notes of irony that blend without jarring thanks to the skilful direction of Bong Joon-ho.


It has been talked about for a long time and for the same time it has been one of the most anticipated films in cinemas since the announcement of its release. This is Tenet, the latest work by the visionary Christopher Nolan who, after a theatrical release that tried to cope with the difficult pandemic situation that has hit the whole world, will be available for viewing on Sky's Cinema Uno channel on 5 July. Even for the realization of Tenet it took a record time: five years for its script alone, with a pre-production phase that began only in 2018. Filming required a great deal of effort, as it was carried out in different locations around the world. including Italy, along with the United States, England, Estonia, Norway, India and Denmark. Among the performers who make up the cast of Tenet we find John David Washington in the title role, as well as Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki and Michael Caine.

The plot of Tenet (like several other Nolan's works) is quite complex and full of puzzles. It follows the "protagonist" in his actions of international espionage, until he suddenly finds himself involved in a secret program called Tenet. Man is therefore assigned a mission that will not only lead him to different parts of the world, but even to the limits of time which, as he will discover, will necessarily have to be bent in impossible ways to avert what promises to be a Third World War capable to destroy everything.

Dinner with Crime - Knives Out

One of the brightest and funniest thrillers of recent years, Rian Johnson's film is among the best Sky film in July and will be available on July 8 on the Cinema Uno channel. Cena con delitto - Knives out is a 2019 film that sees the presence of a renowned choral cast, including Daniel Craig in the role of the protagonist investigator, together with Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ana De Armas and Christopher Plummer, among others. Waiting for the two sequels already announced by director Rian Johnson, in which Daniel Craig will play the role of Benoit Blanc again, it will be possible to enjoy the title this month on Sky.

Detective Blanc is the one called to investigate on the mysterious death of the mystery writer Harlan Thrombey, who died in what appears to be a suicide for investigators. Benoit Blanc then retraces the last meeting between the writer and his large, dysfunctional family, who gathered for a dinner on the very evening of Thrombey's death. In fact, each member had a motive to kill the man: an enigmatic case full of irony, to discover the real culprit (to be rediscovered again and again with the Blu-Ray available here).

Return to Crime

An all-Italian comedy that mixes action with comedy, Return to Crime is the film directed by Massimiliano Bruno and the sequel to Non Us But Crime. With a title that pays homage to the successful Back to the Future saga, Bruno's film also plays with time travel, however, catapulting the protagonists to the places and years when crime was at its peak in Italy. The cast of Return to Crime includes Alessandro Gassman, Marco Giallini, Edoardo Leo and Gian Marco Tognazzi, together with the same director Massimiliano Bruno, Gianfranco Gallo, Carlo Buccirosso, Giulia Bevilacqua and the famous Loretta Goggi. The title, one of the best Sky films of July, will be available for world premiere on Monday 12 July, on Cinema Uno.

If in the first chapter of the saga the protagonists found themselves in spite of themselves in 1982, in the midst of the crimes carried out by the Banda della Magliana in Rome, in Return to crime they will have to deal with the Neapolitan Camorra of the years '70. In pursuit of the woman who has stolen their heart (and money), Sebastiano, Moreno and Giuseppe will find bosses and Camorra fans with guns drawn on their way, in a daring journey full of comedy.

The Glorias

Based on Gloria Steinem's autobiographical book My Life on the Road, The Glorias is the film directed by Julie Taymor which will be available on Sky Cinema Due on Wednesday 21 July. As in Steinem's work, Taymor's film also recounts the life of the writer and activist, constantly traveling and committed to defending women's rights. The Glorias includes in its cast Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander and Janelle Monae, with the first two to play both Gloria in two different periods of her life.

The film tells the most important milestones that have marked the existence of Gloria Steinem, from childhood to adolescence, showing her travels to India in a more adult age, up to her full maturity, in the 1970s. These are precisely the most important years in which, as we learn through The Glorias, the activist was strongly committed to feminist revolutions, becoming a real leader and an icon for all women in the world.


Once again, among the best Sky films of July, a film that draws inspiration from another work. This time it is Blackbird, directed by Roger Michell and remake of the Danish film Silent Heart, directed by Bille August. A touching drama with sometimes ironic tones, played by Susan Sarandon in the role of the protagonist, with Kate Winslet, Sam Neill and Rainn Wilson. Known above all for Notting Hill, in 2019 Roger Michell brought the emotions and frailties of those suffering from a serious illness, in this case ALS, to the screen and shares his last moments of life with his loved ones.

Blackbird indeed follows the last weekend of Lily, a woman suffering from terminal illness, who reunites her family to spend her last days together before the assisted suicide she intends to face. In the big house where everyone meets Lily's side, emotions, desires, secrets are shared among family members. And one of these secrets, kept hidden by her daughters for so many years, will question Lily's difficult decision. Blackbird will be available for viewing on Sky Cinema Uno on Sunday 25 July.

Crown Vic

On 28 July, on Cinema Uno, a detective show showing the real face of crime in the streets, through the eyes of two policemen in their Ford Crown Victoria. Directed by Joel Souza, Crown Vic unmasks the face of the night and secret city, while everyone is asleep and the criminals are busy carrying out their misdeeds undisturbed. The film stars Luke Kleintank, Thomas Jane, David Krumholtz, Bridget Moynahan, Scottie Thompson and Josh Hopkins and rightfully enters the list of the best Sky movies of July.

Crown Vic follows the night patrol through the streets of Los Angeles of veteran Ray Mandel and newly arrived agent Nick Holland: while the former is a disillusioned and cynical man, known for his rather violent conduct on the field, the latter still seeks the good in each with the hope of being able to improve the things. Their different personalities will be questioned during their nightly service in Los Angeles, as they go in search of a kidnapped young woman and chase two robbers guilty of killing, among other things, two police officers.
