Recent Oscar winner Call Me By Your Name will screen at the 25th Prague International Film Festival (Febio Fest) as a part of the festival’s queer section.
Czech actor Jan Tříska died last night after an accident on Charles Bridge earlier this weekend.
Personal Shopper is an interesting trip into the high-end fashion world and the spoilt brats that inhabit it. An otherwise overused cliche that’s been given a refreshing, albeit sometimes strange subplot involving a ghost.
The Zookeeper’s Wife, another addition to the holocaust genre that had potential to be fiercely original and thought-provoking, but just ends up being another Anthropoid.
Not to be confused with the Stephen King book, Christine is an unconventional biopic about one Florida news reporter and her struggle adapting to the rise of sensationalist media. A harrowing yet fascinating film, and a career best performance from Rebecca Hall.
Werner Herzog’s latest film is a bigger disaster than the impending ecological doom at the heart of its narrative. A waste of resources, and an immense waste of talented actors. What on earth happened here?
A wonderful feel good romp, bursting at the seams with nostalgia and classic 80s tunes. It’s Once but with lovable teenage misfits.
One of the stand-outs at Prague Febio Fest so far, A Monster Calls is a carefully constructed masterpiece that dwells on life and death, and everything in between. A superb exercise in psychology and grief through the eyes of a child.
An unconventional thriller that relies on intense realism and first class source dialogue from the play by David Harrower. Rooney Mara is an unstoppable force.
One of the openers at Febio Fest and an accurate depiction of the events surrounding the Loving’s quest for marriage and recognition in a conservative Virginia, with stand-out performances from all, but moves slowly and could have benefited with a little more drama.
