Ben Affleck knows how to poke fun at himself. The 45-year-old actor responded to a recent New Yorker article titled “The Great Sadness of Ben Affleck” following the reveal of his long-rumored tattoo earlier this month. “@NewYorker I’m doing just fine. Thick skin bolstered by garish tattoo,” Affleck jokingly responded to the outlet. The story centered around the seeming sadness of the actor following his 2015 split from Jennifer Garner. The New Yorker referenced several “despondent” looking paparazzi shots of Affleck, including one that revealed a full view of the back tattoo he originally denied getting shortly after the split. “[It’s] fake for a movie,” Affleck told Extra’s Mario Lopez in March 2016. “I actually do have a number of tattoos but I try to have them in places where you don’t have to do a lot of cover up they get sort of addictive, tattoos, after awhile.” The photos came as Affleck is filming the Netflix movie Triple Frontier in Honolulu, Hawaii alongside Garret Hedlund, Charlie Hunnam and Oscar Isaac. The actor’s girlfriend Lindsay Shookus has also joined him on the island recently. The two were spotted having fun on a kayak outing on Tuesday. Affleck has also been continuing his treatment for alcohol addiction following a rehab stay in early 2017.

“The story is interesting emotionally, culturally, and intellectually,” Lonergan told Variety. “I think what makes the story timeless is people want to participate in their culture as equals and that never goes away. There’s always going to be obstacles to equality. I hope the obstacles dwindle.”

Cinema: "Personal shopper", "Manchester by the sea" and Star Wars "Rogue one", three
-proof films Mathieu Charrier and Bruno Cras criticize three recent films, accompanied by fellow journalists. Verdict!
Which movie to see this week? The two cinema specialists of Europe 1, Mathieu Charrier and Bruno Cras, accompanied this week by Stéphanie Belpeche of the Sunday newspaper and Baptiste Liger of L'Express, deliver their impressions on three cinema releases in the program. On the grill: Olivier Assayas 'personal shopper, Kenneth Lonergan's Manchester by the sea and Star Wars: Gareth Edwards' Rogue One.
Rogue One: A Gareth Edwards Star Wars story , in theaters since Dec. 14
The pitch: "39 years ago was Star Wars: A new hope In this movie of the saga (episode 4, in fact shot first), we see Princess Leia go down a hallway and hide the plans of the Black Star, the Empire's hideout, we did not know how these plans had been recovered.With Rogue One, Disney responds to this mystery since the new film explains how a rebel team managed to appropriate these plans. "
>> Stéphanie Belpeche's review: "I liked to re-evaluate (downwards) episode 7 of last year's JJ Abrams, starring Gareth Edwards, who was made a name in the world of science fiction with Monsters and Godzilla, has completely captured the universe.There is both respect and at the same time it shakes the codes.It is hyper-realistic. really feels like following a war reporter, it's breathless, there's an extra dimension to the rebel figure - the good guys in history - who are shown as terrorists because the power in place is the Empire. "
>> The opinion of Mathieu Charrier: "It's a much more humane story than the other Star Wars, there's a lot less Force, on the dark side, and even having seen none of the other Star Wars, can understand. "
critics >> The opinion of Baptiste Liger: "The human side is really developed. is in my opinion the best staged episode of the whole saga.What is very successful in Rogue One is that it is an episode of Star Wars with its graphic codes respected, its twists and the same time, it's a separate film because it plays with the war movie codes.There is a pretty remarkable 3D because it does not do too much. "
Personal shopper by Olivier Assayas, in theaters since December 14
The pitch: "This is the story of Maureen, played by Kristen Stewart, who is a personal shopper, that is to say she takes care of choosing the clothes of the stars.It does this not for love of fashion but to continue living in Paris where it waits for the spirit of his missing brother reappear.
>> The opinion of Mathieu Charrier: "There are many things in this film a little 'mess' Kristen Stewart is magnified on the screen, the director shows it to us as ever."
>> The opinion of Baptiste Liger: "The film was not very well received in Cannes despite a price of staging shared with. There are some things a little heavy, the film is a bit repetitive, there is also this bobo film that can annoy, but Kristen Stewart leads the film from start to finish, there are issues about the virtuality of relationships between people, and it's pretty well done. The film also plays with the stakes of the ghost film in a rather original way.We must see the film as a curiosity
>> The opinion of Stéphanie Belpeche: "The Japanese horror film dimension is present, the way Kiyoshi Kurosawa who makes live and dead dialog in a natural way. This allows the living to exert trauma and accept their own mortality. It is a story of obsession with the old enough pregnant, sensitive, which sticks to the skin. "
>> The opinion of Bruno Cras: " Olivier Assayas is connected but it is a missed film. It's disparate. You play nerds but no one has to pay 12 euros to see this movie! "
Manchester by the sea Kenneth Lonergan, in theaters since December 14
The pitch: " This is the story of Lee (Casey Affleck, Ben's younger brother), a strange man doing odd jobs right to left. On the one hand, he breaks the mouth of two types, on the other, he takes care very well of the son of his brother who has just died. We do not understand very well his attitude and we will discover that something has happened to him ... "
>> The opinion of Bruno Cras: " This is a beautiful film, melodrama assumed around mourning, guilt, family, responsibility. It is also the story of a reconstruction, several characters from elsewhere. The landscapes are also beautiful, it's happening at the water's edge in New England. Gorgeous. A jewel, which ranks in ten of the most beautiful films of the year. I'm going to see him again. "
>> Stéphanie Belpeche's opinion: " He's going straight into the Top 10, I agree. It is a heartbreaking melodrama that advances masked, with a mastered and subtle construction that alternates flashbacks into a traumatic past and the melancholy present. We have index after index of the elements to understand what was the course of this broken man. Editing and writing are virtuosic. When I left, I told myself that Casey Affleck was going to receive the Oscar for Best Actor. "
>> Mathieu Charrier's opinion: " We want to help him. It feels like he's so locked up in his body and in his distress. "
>> Baptiste Liger's review: " It's even one of the two or three biggest movies of the year . This is an absolute success at the stage, the scenario. What a building lesson. What a way to take the codes of melodrama without looking for easy emotion. It's deep and there are moments of emotion that come as in a boxing fight, all at once. I have not seen a film so moving for years. There are also incredible movie moments. He uses Albinoni's adagio, which is one of the most melodic music that exists, and it's not heavy, it does something about it. On top of that, it's a very mainstream movie. "
