THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER’S WEB – Nov. 9

spider web

Young computer hacker Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist find themselves caught in a web of spies, cybercriminals and corrupt government officials. So far, poor reviews, but Claire Foy may be worth the price of admission.

BURNING – Nov. 9

Burning

South Korean entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards. Jong-soo runs into Hae-mi, a girl who once lived in his neighborhood, and she asks him to watch her cat while she’s out of town. When she returns, she introduces him to Ben, a man she met on the trip. Ben proceeds to tell Jong-soo about his hobby. Strange as it is, anyone who knows the work of Haruki Murakami knows that this could very well be one of the best foreign films of 2018.

A PRIVATE WAR – Nov. 16

One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.

WIDOWS – Nov. 16

widows

Set in contemporary Chicago, amidst a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms. Huge fan of Steve McQueen, although this film has all the makings of one of those “one for you” moments.

AT ETERNITY’S GATE – Nov. 16

eternity

A look at the life of painter Vincent van Gogh during the time he lived in Arles and Auvers-sur-Oise, France. Julian Schnabel hasn’t directed anything since 2010 according to 2010 and since he himself is a painter this new film will definitely be worth seeing. Although, I doubt it will rival Mike Leigh’s  Mr. Turner, it certainly has the makings of being another fine Van Gogh installment after last years, Loving Vincent.

GREEN BOOK – Nov. 21

This is the tale of a meeting between Lazzaro, a young peasant so good that he is often mistaken for simple-minded, and Tancredi, a young nobleman cursed by his imagination. Winner at Cannes for Best Screenplay.

New #WoodyAllen film, #ARainyDayInNewYork, starring #JudeLaw, @sukiwaterhouse, @selenagomez, #ElleFanning, @rebeccahall, & @tchalamet, has been shelved. #AmazonStudios reportedly spent $25 million on the #film’s production budget, but distributing an Allen #movie would be incredibly #controversial in the #MeToo era. The #director’s name has been in countless headlines over the last year as his adopted daughter, #DylanFarrow, resurfaced her #allegation accusing Allen of #child #molestation. Allen has denied the accusation. [@indiewire]
WILDLIFE: “Set in the 1960s, this superb #film, directed by #PaulDano from a script he and #ZoeKazan adapted from the 1990 Richard Ford novel, puts its main adult characters in the way of destructive forces of their own conjuring soon enough.” [📑 | @nytimes] #wildlifethefilm #careymulligan #jakegyllenhaal
“Kor-eda, a consummate examiner of the socially estranged and marginalized . . . remains ceaselessly curious about the emotions and motivations of the displaced.” #Shoplifters #HirokazuKoreeda #Japan #japanesecinema #poor #poverty #family #struggle #crime #survival
This #Christmas, get into the #transcendental with #RobertBresson, #YasujiroOzu, and #CarlTheodorDreyer. A viewing experience, according to #PaulDano, that forever changed his conception of cinema’s expressive possibilities. Next year, we’ll do just that. Reading through #Paul Schrader’s “Transcendental Style in Film” & watching the films he discusses. #the_education_of_gortnacul
