Lux Æterna

6

The enfant terrible of French is back, this time with a tortuous and torturous featurette about the menacing (male) filmmaker and the vulnerable actress.

Forman vs. Forman

At 78 minutes, it will likely please both die-hard fans keen to see and hear their idol and those less familiar with his filmography.

南方车站的聚会

6

Fugitive thriller set in a gloomy and despondent China excels in visual excellence and technical wizardry, yet its plot is tedious and banal.

Pain and Glory

Pedro Almodóvar bares his soul in his most personal movie yet, about an ageing and ailing filmmaker searching for inspiration inside his own frail existence.

Atlantiques

Senegalese film by first-time director blends an exquisite photography with strange traditions and eerie superstitions.

The Swallows of Kabul

French animation follows two young lovers in Taliban-occupied Kabul, portraying life under the oppressive regime in a colourful yet frank light.

Brazilian filmmakers deliver ultra-violent and wacky sci-fi ornated with historical allusions and spiced with political flavours.

Woman at War

7

Wilfully wacky Icelandic comedy about radical environmental activist waging a war against the local aluminium factory has some delightful moments.

Austrian drama about female sailor confronted with a wrecked boat full of perishing refugees raises urgent and pertinent moral questions.

Ultimately, JT LeRoy is a finely acted and crafted study of the relationship between artistry and identity.

Poster for Knife+Heart

Knife+Heart

8

Giallo-inspired and brazenly gay serial murder story from France features a magnetic Vanessa Paradis in the lead and an electrifying music score.

Poster for Red Joan

Red Joan

7

It’s rather formulaic and conventional, an average spy drama doused in saccharine and filled with two half-baked romances. On the other hand, Red Joan contains a very urgent message that world peace must prevail above national allegiances, and that nationalism can be an arrogant and exclusionary notion.

Poster for No Box for Me: An Intersex Story

No Box for Me: An Intersex Story

6

This 59-minute documentary is informative enough for those (like myself) who are little familiar into the world of intersex. A good starting point.

Poster for Un Golpe de Sol

Un Golpe de Sol

7

It’s effective and riveting enough to keep you hooked until the end. The performances are convincing, too. The script, however, insistently delves into petit bourgeois afflictions, and some people might find it a little pedantic. I still enjoyed it, though.

Poster for 3 Faces

3 Faces

7

3 Faces returns to the old tradition of Iranian cinema of the 1990s, in its narrative/formal wizardry. It’s meditative, lyrical and cryptic, a lot like The Taste of Cherry.

Poster for We the Animals

We the Animals

8

We The Animals is a gentle yet harrowing tale about a premature coming-of-age in a fractured home, mainly seen from the perspective of the child. It’s very honest and brutal, without slipping into cliches.

Water Makes Us Wet: An Ecosexual Adventure

5

All in all, Water Makes Us Wet is still refreshing enough to watch. Just don’t expect too much depth.

Being Frank: The Chris Sievey Story

6

Being Frank: the Chris Sievey Story is interesting enough for nostalgic fans, but it’s unlikely to convert any new admirers.

Breaking Habits

Breaking Habits is a auspicious documentary about a singular initiative combining religion, business and medicine.

The director and crew behind the Oscar-nominated Embrace of the Serpent have created yet another cinematographically accomplished movie.

Poster for Donbass

Donbass

7

Sergei Loznitsa's twisted and grotesque allegory of the ongoing War in Donbass has good moments but lacks the lyrical genius of his previous works.

Pond Life

10

A small mining village is teeming with teenage hormones, Summer dreams and real-life deceptions, in profoundly sensitive and moving drama by first-time director.

Espero tua (re)volta
