120 BPM or BPM (Beats Per Minute) is a non-traditional movie about HIV in the sense that most of the film is spent in the heated debates of activist group ACT UP Paris, and when we finally see the searing physiological and psychological effects of the virus, it's brutal and unforgiving. This film doesn't hold back, and that's what puts it above the rest.
The award-winning queer film 120 BPM will premiere on the 30th November in Prague's Kino Světozor.
Be2Can distribution will host the premiere of the new Yorgos Lanthimos film The Killing of a Sacred Deer, starring Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman, on November 1 in Prague's Kino Svetozor.
Lynne Ramsay's hallucinatory revenge drama seems like a quiet tribute to Taxi Driver, with a wonderfully raw and stripped down performance from Joaquin Phoenix. There's a welcoming focus on primitive emotion rather than balls-out action.
Currently screening at Prague's Be2Can, The Killing of a Sacred Deer is a wild, unconventional, and wholly unpredictable horror film with tremendous psychological depth, which somehow blends seamlessly with director Yorgos Lanthimos' signature quickfire wit and dialogue.
The Square is a satirical take on the modern madness of the art industry. Packed with subtle nods to our doomed society, it makes for a deep post-viewing discussion. However, director Ruben Östlund gives a bit too much to ponder here, and that makes this Cannes Palme d'Or winner fall short.
The fourth edition of the Be2Can Film Festival is coming this October and promises to be another year rich in diverse titles and broad cinema discussion. Be2Can brings the best of the best from the top European festivals in Berlin, Venice, and of course Cannes.
