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.
Voyage of Time is something between poetry and documentary. It's a thought provoking and gorgeous interpretation of the story of our universe.
