I'm pretty sure this was a book of some sort.
There's a special class of film buff who might camp out in costume in anticipation of a new Aleksandr Sokurov film. The director of the entire-history-of-Russia-in-one-feature-length-tracking-shot Russian Ark, is one of those filmmakers whose technically, intellectually stunning work sets him at the very pinnacle of the art form, while managing to remain forever inaccessible to any but the stoutest attention spans.
Jordan Peele made the jump from sketch comedy to horror movies to the tune of $183m at the box office. This socially conscious Stepford Wives riff cost all of $4.5m to make, so as you can imagine Mr. Peele will have less difficulty securing studio-backing for his next few projects than you or I would have getting an Uber.
Six years after Klown brought Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen's singularly warped sense of humor stateside, the sequel transports Frank and Casper themselves to America. Offensive hilarity ensues.
Laika's track record puts them firmly in the tier with Pixar and Studio Ghibli as the best animation studios on the planet.
Conventional wisdom holds that this is the best X-Men movie yet, and one of the best of the current superhero boom. But be forewarned, ye faint of heart, Logan earns every bit of its R rating.
In memoriam (1965-2016)
Silence is Martin Scorsese's first movie in the better part of two decades that didn't take in at least $100m at the box office. Perhaps it's near three-hour run time had something to do with that. Don't let that stop you, however, as it is, as always, a masterwork.
If you took every word I said about Francofonia above, and replaced it with the word "fighting".
The less you know, the better. If you can stomach a certain amount of gross and appreciate a certain amount of absurd, read nothing else on the subject and request this movie.
Yorgos Lanthimos - whatever enfant terrible is in Greek - makes the rare successful leap to Hollywood without losing everything that made him interesting. Starring Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, John C Reilly and Angeliki Papoulia, my vote for greatest actress most people have never heard of.
