I'm well aware that this list is coming a little late, but better late than never. As usual, this one covers my top picks for titles released in the Czech Republic during 2018, which also includes festival screenings and those released on streaming services like Netflix. So unfortunately, The Favourite is not here (it was just released and you should definitely go and see it) and Suspiria is not here either (if it was, then it would probably be close to the top). Nevertheless, there were some impressive films that popped up in our little country last year, and some of them we even saw before the rest of the world.
The 15th Prague Short Film Festival is upon us again, and this year's diverse programme of films from all over the globe, both in and out of competition, is now up. From Ingmar Bergman to Amazonian women, and virtual reality to sex for beginners, there's a treat for everyone here.
The new Czech biopic Jan Palach will have an English subtitled screening at 'Catch-Up Tuesday' in Prague's Kino Světozor on September 4.
Climax is one of the most disturbing films I've seen in a while. Visually captivating, entertaining, and truly horrific at times.
