From Strictly Ballroom to Elvis: the career of Baz Luhrmann – sorted
The Australian auteur’s films are intoxicating, polarising spectacles – so from the very bad (Australia) to the very good, we rank his works across film and TVGet our weekend culture and lifestyle email and listen to our podcastAs we know from having had our senses pounded by various glitter-filled, hyperactive and blindingly bright spectacles, Baz Luhrmann’s films don’t talk – they shout. The Sydney-born auteur practises a film-making ethos he and veteran editor Jill Billcock (who cut his first three films: the “red curtain trilogy”) sagely described as “frame fucking”.Luhrmann is a polarising director, as everybody and their dog have pointed out. The trick to making sense of Luhrmann is to understand that he doesn’t really consciously manipulate, or even necessarily believe in, subtext. Everything is always on the surface. There are broad, agreed upon meanings – for instance, Romeo + Juliet and his new film Elvis are obviously tragedies. Problems arise when his work cries out for considered layering of themes and messages, only for viewers to discover there is always little under the bonnet. Continue reading...

The Guardian view on defunding the Kremlin’s war machine: more must be done | Editorial
G7 leaders are right to promote a global price cap on Russian oil and gasThe residential area of Kyiv hit by four missile strikes on Sunday was also targeted in April, as the UN secretary-general, António Guterres, visited the city. This time – after weeks during which the capital had not been attacked – Vladimir Putin doubtless aimed to fire a warning to G7 leaders gathering in Bavaria, and before a Nato summit in Madrid this week. A seven-year-old girl pulled injured from the rubble was among those who paid the price for Mr Putin’s brutal piece of symbolism.Calculated outrages such as this, and Monday’s strike on a busy shopping centre in central Ukraine, must be met with unity and renewed focus from the west. This is an ominous moment in the war. The Kremlin’s strategic refocusing of its ambitions on the eastern Donbas is now leading to significant Russian territory gains in the region. Mr Putin’s cynical blockade of the Black Sea port of Odesa is, meanwhile, driving food prices up in developing nations, creating a hunger crisis which risks being associated with western sanctions on Moscow. In the west, the politics of the cost of living crisis – in part a consequence of the war – is destabilising governments and leaders who have presented a united front since February’s invasion. Understandably, the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, fears that global repugnance at Russia’s actions since February may morph into wearied resignation and acceptance of a fait accompli in the east.

The Guardian view on the Social Mobility Commission: a string of broken promises | Editorial
Under Katharine Birbalsingh, the body has moved away from its initial remit of child povertyIt was predictable that the first annual report from the Social Mobility Commission under the leadership of Katharine Birbalsingh would present a rosier picture than critics of our deeply unequal society are accustomed to. Ministers appointed Ms Birbalsingh because they believe she is unlikely to make life difficult for them. Her brand of “can do” toughness is a good fit with a government that wants individual young people to do their best (who doesn’t?) but doesn’t want to be challenged on the corrosive effects of poverty, or opportunity hoarding by the well-off.The argument presented in last week’s report is that doom-mongers have had too much airtime: occupational mobility has been steady for decades. Any recent decline is blamed on previous success – the massive late 20th-century expansion in professional jobs could not go on indefinitely. The report acknowledges that income mobility is on a different trajectory, with those born since the late 1970s facing decreased chances of changing their circumstances. It notes that the gap in earnings between women from professional and working-class backgrounds has widened since 2014, and allows that the impact of the pandemic is yet to be accounted for.
