The White Crow The White Crow

The White Crow; Ralph Fiennes, versions: SS : eng, fra, rus

In 1961, Russian ballet star Rudolf Nureyev defected to the West – providing director Ralph Fiennes with a rich character for his third feature. This impressive, dance-heavy biopic focuses on Nureyev’s childhood, training, and life-changing visit to Paris as part of the Kirov Ballet, culminating in his decision to seek asylum in France. Meanwhile, Fiennes the actor opts to play Alexander Pushkin – St. Petersburg’s most respected dance instructor, who sees something in Nureyev’s passion, prizing it above pure technical skill. For years, it was believed that Nureyev had premeditated his defection, but The White Crow offers a different interpretation, treating it as a spontaneous decision – and therefore the most life-altering of his caprices. Although the film’s many ballet scenes are stunning, it’s this climax at the airport that audiences have come to see, using whatever clues Fiennes has supplied before, as answering the mysterious question of why he did it. – Peter Debruge Show more

Eighth Grade Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade; Bo Burnham, versions: SS : eng

Introverted Kayla is going through one of life’s most difficult, hormonally tumultuous times. With only a few weeks left of her eighth school year, she can’t wait to finally become a “cool” teenager and go to high school. Portraying a child’s transformation into a young adult, this satirical comedy provides an accurate, complex portrayal of an adolescent girl in a world where an appealing social media profile carries more weight than real life. Facebook is out, everybody’s on Instagram and Snapchat! Burnham’s critically and popularly acclaimed comedy/drama is a carefully constructed, provocative yet sensitive depiction of how we live today. 16-year-old Elsie Fisher, nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance as Kayla, brilliantly conveys a young person’s emotional highs and lows. Eighth Grade is an exceptional film about the everyday concerns of an adolescent girl. Show more

Vice Vice

Vice; Adam McKay, versions: SS : eng

Who was Dick Cheney? A cheerleader for the fossil-fuel industry with a propensity for alcoholism, George W. Bush’s running mate, and one of the most powerful vice-presidents in the history of American politics. He began his political career in the Nixon administration as a staffer for future Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who Cheney would later surpass as Vice President, pulling the strings of a shadow government of sorts for eight years. But he was also a family man and a dog lover… Oscar-winning director Adam McKay has written and directed a powerful, subtly witty biography, following the career of a bureaucrat and Washington insider who, to many, is the archetypal evil, power-hungry politician. Intensifying the film’s persuasiveness and authenticity, the 46th American vice president is portrayed by Christian Bale, one of Hollywood’s most versatile actors Show more

Destroyer Destroyer

Destroyer; Karyn Kusama, versions: SS : eng

Erin is a detective for the Los Angeles Police Department. 20 years ago, she and her partner went undercover to investigate a dangerous gang, but their operation ended in tragedy. She tries to drown her trauma in alcohol, convinced that the case will remain unsolved. But now a new crime has surfaced with the same M.O. Though no one believes her, Erin knows that if she manages to find the culprit, not only will justice finally be served, but she will rid herself of the demons that have ruined her life. This existentially resonant crime thriller is dominated by the performance of Nicole Kidman, nearly unrecognizable as the hardened cop Erin. Not to mention her co-star, the city of Los Angeles itself, depicted as an alienated, volatile wasteland. Special thanks:

The Old Man & the Gun The Old Man & the Gun

The Old Man & the Gun; David Lowery, versions: SS : eng

This comedy/crime drama is an elegant adaptation of the biography of gentleman-robber Forrest Tucker (1920–2004), who made his mark with several non-violent bank robberies, while also achieving notoriety as a prison-break virtuoso. The film recounts various episodes from the life of the charismatic criminal. Later in life, he met the woman of his dreams. But he loved nothing more than a good game of cat-and-mouse, where the mouse was his old friend, the police detective. Robert Redford, with a long and illustrious film career behind him, earned a Golden Globe nomination with what he has said is his farewell role. Special thanks:

All Is True All Is True

All Is True; Kenneth Branagh, versions: SS : eng

The year is 1613. The Globe Theatre having burned to the ground, William Shakespeare returns to his family seat in Stratford, where he tries, after a hiatus of many years, to revive his relationship with his wife Anna and his two daughters. Making up for his long years of absence is no easy task. But most of all, William misses his son Hamnet, who died at the age of 11. A quiet, meditative portrait of the genius playwright. Instead of emphasizing his prodigious work, the unhurried narrative explores the bard’s mental world toward the end of his life. The kind of life he lived, and the truth and meaning he found in it.
