Sundance 2015 Review: Things Of The Aimless Wanderer, A World-Class Stunner

13 hours ago | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

To be absolutely mesmerized by a film, totally transfixed, is a rare happening in cinema, but should be the norm, right? Rwanda director Kivu Ruhorahoza's Things Of The Aimless Wanderer is just such a film, spectacular and ambitious in all its working parts, catapulting cutting-edge African cinema onto the world stage with the intensity of a new religion. Ruhorahoza's efforts are made up of a pure cinema, observant and immaculate, cutting deep swatches into East African culture, post-genocide, positing questions of what a modern Rwanda looks like, wondering where  Western influence and agendas end. The work is reminiscent of such filmmakers as Werner Herzog, Miguel Gomes (Taboo), Chris Marker (Sans Soleil) and Apichatpong "Joe" Weerasethakul (Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives), towing the...

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #13. Maren Ade’s Toni Erdmann

9 January 2015 7:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Toni Erdmann

Director: Maren Ade // Writer: Maren Ade

Though many be unfamiliar with her work, which is a pity since both her previous films are available in the Us, director Maren Ade happens to be one of the most vibrant new voices in German cinema. Her 2003 debut The Forest For the Trees received a rather hushed festival debut in Germany before going to collect a Special Jury prize at Sundance. Her powerful and exquisite follow-up was 2009′s Everyone Else, which took home the Silver Berlin Bear at that year’s Berlin film festival. Generally taking a long time between projects, we’ve been patiently waiting for her third feature, Toni Erdmann, which was initially announced back in 2012. With filming at last completed, we’re hoping to finally catch a glimpse of the film which we know little about except that it’s about a father trying to connect with his adult daughter. »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #60. Miguel Gomes’ Arabian Nights

7 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Arabian Nights

Director: Miguel Gomes// Writers: Miguel Gomes, Telmo Churro, Mariana Ricardo

Miguel Gomes’ 2012 film Tabu managed to elevate the Portugeuse filmmaker’s international status when it picked up two awards at the Berlin film festival that year, and had a hand in at last making his 2008 Cannes premiered sophomore feature Our Beloved Month of August at last available for DVD consumption in the Us. Experimentally inclined, Gomes next tackles the famed Arabian nights tale but abandons all except for the structure to depict a modern Portugal in peril under Troika control. It’s the most ambitious treatment of the material since Pasolini adapted Arabian Nights back in 1974. We’ll be expecting stunning musical interplay and visually innovative sequences.

Cast: Carloto Cotta, Joana de Verona, Adriano Luz

Producer: O Som e a Fúria

U.S. Distributor: Rights available

Release Date: Rumored to be aiming for a Spring 2015 release, we’re »
