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.
Šimon Šafránek's new documentary King Skate is a playful and thought-provoking look at Czechoslovak history through the freedom of skateboarding... plus the soundtrack is awesome.
Climax is one of the most disturbing films I've seen in a while. Visually captivating, entertaining, and truly horrific at times.
This year's Karlovy Vary International Film Festival winner is a highly original and unconventional story of politics and convenient ignorance. Barbarians is a fascinating piece of modern cinema, executed with impeccable precision and rarely has a dull moment.
Terry Gilliam's epic passion project has a promising start that's grounded in reality and full of laughs, but in the director's typical style, eventually becomes messy and incoherent, even if it is stunning to look at.
Not only is Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman unbelievably stylish and packed with wit and comedic ingenuity, but it's also a detailed and unabashedly brutal study of American history.
Belarus' Oscar submission Crystal Swan is a charming film that captures the irony and frustration of post-communist youth. Both empowering and amusing, this is something you should definitely see at Karlovy Vary International Film Festival this week.
