We the Animals 11/21/18
Most of the themes centre around your general coming of age type tropes (Peer pressure, belonging, family dynamics etc) but the real strength of the film is putting the viewer into the headspace of Jonah.
The Rider 11/15/18
There are some heart-breaking scenes in which Brady goes to visit an old friend Lane Scott, played by.Lane Scott, who has some real life history of his own that probably needs looking up after youve watched the movie.
The Golden Dream 11/13/18
Director Diego Quemada-D apparently worked with Ken Loach on a couple of films and it shows in this movie - it's a very raw, real look at the lengths people in central America and Mexico will go to find a way to get across the border to the USA.
Thunder Road 10/23/18
There are moments of black comedy placed into scenes of real drama - which shouldn't really work.
A Fantastic Woman 6/26/18
The film was produced by Pablo Larrain (Jackie, The Club), so there are clearly some neat Chilean collaborations going on.
Joachim Trier's direction is more than adequate, and as mentioned beofre, the cinematography by Jakob Ihre is superb throughout - one beautifully filmed scene in particular (set on a lake) will live long in the memory.
The Isle 6/14/18
Ki Duk Kim has always been a divisive director, with his films showing slow burning, very natural, almost spiritual human traits.
My Feral Heart 6/06/18
Very moving, poignant film about a man with Down's syndrome trying to regather his life after a tragedy.
