‘Napoleon’ Review: French Dip
Ridley Scott’s Napoleon marches into cinematic battle with the bluster and confidence that comes with a reported $200-million budget and Sir Ridley’s decades-deep track record of well-mounted action epics.All that money and prestige is visible onscreen in the film’s far-flung locations, hundreds of extras, delectable period costumes and decor, and, as advertised, several massively-scaled scenes of battle, on land and sea, circa 1789 to 1815.Legions of infantry and cavalry clash on various rolling hills of Europe, shot in icy, desaturated blues and grays by Dariusz Wolski, Scott’s cinematographer on his last nine films (though not his next one, Gladiator 2, being lensed by Gladiator d.p. John Mathieson).Against vast fields of green or snow-covered grasses, and CGI-enhanced masses of combatants, soldiers’ coats flash a red that’s many shades brighter than the blood that flows and bursts violently across the screen.The filmmakers spare no visual detail in depicting the bodily devastation of hand-to-hand armed combat — death by bayonet, point-blank gunfire, horse hooves, or long-range artillery.Death here is bloody, disgusting, and woefully unnecessary, but it’s also the main currency of war, and this movie revels in the loud, explosive spectacle of war far more enthusiastically than it casts its feebly critical eye at the men who clamor for it.Above all else, the film renders tribute to Napoleon Bonaparte, portrayed by Oscar-winner Joaquin Phoenix as a shrewd but coarse, fearless, petulant, glowering egomaniac who rises to imperial power fighting and winning wars.
Man led friends to believe he booked a private jet for the best weekend ever — but things were not as they seemed
It seemed too good to be true — and it was.In scenes akin to the ‘Fyre’ Netflix documentary, which follows a charming man conning partygoers into a fantasy luxury festival on a posh island, David Prince-Popovich flew a group of new friends on a private jet to enjoy the best weekend of their lives.But little did they know, he fraudulently booked the eye-watering $18,963 flight — and he was not who he made out to be.Court documents obtained by reveal 23-year-old Prince-Popovich, from Waterloo in Sydney, Australia has been found guilty of a string of financial crimes in New South Wales, Australia — adding to his “extensive criminal history” for similar offenses in Queensland.While the multistate fraudster worked a mundane job as an administrative officer at recycling company Sell and Parker, he posed as a high-flying recipient of a lucrative family inheritance.That’s according to police facts tendered to Downing Centre Local Court, which state it all started when Prince-Popovich was a guest at the Vibe Hotel in Darling Harbour in November 2020 and “formed a relationship” with a staff member there named Daniel.Prince-Popovich told Daniel he “had a lot of money due to family inheritance” and offered to take Daniel and his mates on a trip as “he was in town alone and didn’t have anyone else to hang out with.”Meanwhile, Prince-Popovich contacted the sales and marketing manager of Navair Jet Services to book a return private charter flight from Bankstown in southwest Sydney to the New South Wales coastal town of Ballina.Going by the name of David Matahi, he purported to be the personal assistant of his company’s director, Morgan Parker, and said he was booking the flight on Ms.
