The 19th Mezipatra Queer Film Festival is fast approaching and the festival has just released their programme along with this year’s theme, ‘Beyond Reality’, which promises to fully immerse audiences in fantasy and vivid imagination.
You knew this was coming. It’s long overdue. Every hardcore movie nerd has a tattoo of their favourite film, and they wear it with pride. Unlike most white opinionated male movie nerds between the ages of 30 to 40 however, my tattoos are not Star Wars related. No, my tattoo is one of those ones that people see and think ‘wow, that’s so detailed and interesting, and pretentious…’, and they are absolutely right. I do have a pretentious movie tattoo, and I absolutely love it. Sorry.
Ghost Stories is loads of fun. It’s a horror film that pays tribute to old classics, but still keeps you guessing with its sometimes wild twists and turns. The scares are also well-timed, and just so entertaining – it’s like a dodgy old ghost train, and I mean that in the best possible way.
Black Panther is a great film, and a phenomenal Marvel film even if the plot is a little predictable and formulaic at times. It’s still an achievement though, not to mention inspiring.
Screened on opening night of the Future Gate Sci-fi Film Festival, How to Talk to Girls at Parties is a hilarious and delightfully playful interpretation of Neil Gaiman’s punk inspired short story and destined for cult classic greatness.
Renowned contemporary film composer Clint Mansell will have a concert presented by Film Music Prague next April.
200 Cigarettes is a gem of a New Year’s Eve ensemble comedy starring A LOT of talented Hollywood actors including Ben Affleck, Casey Affleck, Dave Chapelle, Martha Plimpton, Kate Hudson, Janeane Garofalo, Courtney Love, Christina Ricci and Paul Rudd just to name a few.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a breath of fresh air in a franchise that rarely takes risks. Director Rian Johnson takes the trilogy in a bold new direction.
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.
