HBO Max Streaming DOCTOR SLEEP DIRECTOR’S CUT, BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE: Ultimate Edition, ALIENS, JAWS And All 8 HARRY POTTER Films

By  | 

While everyone is house-bound this hot summer, time to check out what’s streaming.  One service to sign up for is HBO MAX.

HBO Max will eventually feature a library of more than 2,000 films within the first year, but one of the movies streaming now is the superb DOCTOR SLEEP. In ca se you missed it in cinemas last year, then you can catch it as well as the director’s cut.  Clocking in at 3 hours, this sequel to Stephen King’s “The Shining,” is about the troubled, now-adult Dan Torrance (Ewan McGregor) who meets a teen who shares his extrasensory gift of the “shine” and tries to protect her from a cult whose members feed off the shine of innocents to become immortal.

The movie is directed by Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Hush, Before I Wake, Ouija: Origin of Evil, Gerald’s Game and the Haunting of Hill House) along with a fantastic score by The Newton Brothers.

In his review, Michael Haffner says “Writer/director Mike Flanagan continues to explore characters grappling with past trauma and grief (he previously directed ABSENTIA, GERALD’S GAME,  and THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE). His tender and vulnerable approach to his characters can almost be described as a signature style at this point. McGregor approaches the character of Danny much like the audience. There is a sense of self-discovery throughout, and a fear of going down a path that you know will only end poorly. There’s a sadness in his eyes, and his redemptive journey from addict to mentor is powerful and heartbreaking at times when he struggles with the mental demons and the demons in the bottle. But the most powerful scenes come from his scenes serving as a hospice caretaker. These emotional scenes bear the weight of Danny’s powers as you see that it’s not necessarily a gift. Flanagan centers these moments around beautiful reflections about life and death, and provides more heart in these scenes than anything in Kubrick’s film.”

In this new video King and Flanagan discuss the sequel. King says, “for me it was great to go back to the Overlook.”
