65 T7 Lucky (2017) - Dec 06, 2017
70 T7 The Love Witch (2016) - Dec 03, 2017
"A rare film that uses its references only to demolish them and construct something new -- a Technicolor feminist soap-opera about human nature, spells and a deadly drive for love. So many lovely raccords -- dirt to bury a dead body followed by a chocolate cake being cut -- and the beautifully use of close-ups and establishing shots uses its lavish, extravagant interiors for a really subversive film about witchcraft and woman empowerment. A wicked, beautiful film about destroying men."
65 T7 Your Name (2016) - Nov 30, 2017
"Dreamy YA disaster movie that draws teen angst and everlasting search for true love from a collective trauma that resonantes with Japanese society. It takes maybe too many digressions to convey its core narrative -- two teens switching places in the wake of a comet about to fall, going back and forth in time trying to reach each other --, but its colors and lights are so beautiful that the story just keeps going despite its evident bloated flow. Songs are cute, animation is 2017's best."
45 T3 Murder on the Orient Express (2017) - Nov 28, 2017
70 T7 Geu-hu (2017) - Nov 28, 2017
80 T9 Brawl in Cell Block 99 (2017) - Nov 27, 2017
"When Bradley smashes his wife's car with his bare hands after knowing she's been betraying him, you know this is gonna be good. All this blue-collar, ex-drinker wants is the basic cable American dream - home, family, some money. He shoots peers and ends up jailed. Then he's forced to descend to hell to save his unborn daughter limbs and his wife. Zalher builds it so slowly it could be 4 hours long and I would notice. Fight and gore combined to comment on a system as brutal as its convicts."
60 T5 Columbus (2017) - Nov 27, 2017
"Kogonada insists on building beautiful frames instead of real dramas, but the actors somehow breathe outside his rigid, near oppressive, too controlling compositions. "
55 T5 Logan Lucky (2017) - Nov 26, 2017
"Soderbergh's blue-collar Ocean's Eleven channels EUA recession like previous films, but with more rigid compositions and a script that provides at least the brightest Game of Thrones joke ever written. More enjoyable than his latest films by creating a heist film totally planned and executed by renegated working-class characters -- and literally all of them are rewarded in equal ways. Full of personality, but also full of mechanisms that don't allow the plot to breathe out of its tricky schemes."
