DVD Review: 'Kinetta'

26 January 2015 8:00 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ The search for meaning can be a futile task in a world obsessed with imagined realities; especially when the line between fact and fiction is distorted and ill-defined. The innate quest for purpose is the core of Yorgos Lanthimos's surreal debut Kinetta (2005), where detachment from modern life is essential in order to unravel the enigmas of human behaviour. Set in a faded holiday resort populated by migrant workers, it contravenes the rules of the medium, approaching its mysteries from an innovative, often infuriatingly obscure perspective. The audience are forced to re-evaluate the world that exists outside the frame and immerse themselves in this comically absurd form of social commentary.

Top 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2015

14 January 2015 10:53 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction. That said, I think I have a nice rounded list for you here. Obviously several from the major studios, but also a few overseas entries to spice things up. Plenty of Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal and a couple starring Rachel Weisz along with several of my favorite directors coming with new films for the new year. If you're wondering where films such »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #4. Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Lobster

9 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Lobster

Director: Yorgos Lanthimos // Writers: Efthymis Filippou, Yorgos Lanthimos

With his third feature, 2009′s Dogtooth, Yorgos Lanthimos became the forefront of what’s coming to be known as the Greek Weird Wave, a handful of cutting edge, strange, and sometimes violent films from a country recently in the midst of extreme economic upheaval. Lanthimos took home the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes that year, following a slowly building buzz that would eventually earn the film an Oscar nod for Best Foreign Language film the following year. Next, Lanthimos debuted another bizarre, expressly beautiful rumination on guilt with 2011′s Alps, nabbing Best Screenplay in Venice. Lanthimos also starred in Athina Rachel Tsnagari’s 2010 Attenberg. Now, he reunites with his Alps screenwriter for his English language debut, The Lobster, which has also been described as a case-study for inventive co-productions, with British, French, Greece, and Dutch money financing a production »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #47. Athina Rachel Tsangari’s Chevalier

7 January 2015 9:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Chevalier

Director: Athina Rachel Tsangari // Writers: Efthymis Filippou, Athina Rachel Tsangari

Director Athina Rachel Tsangari’s arresting sophomore film Attenberg made a powerful impression when it screen at the Venice Film Festival in 2010, cementing her importance as part of the new Greek Weird Wave movement. She’s dabbled here and there since as an executive producer, popped up in Richard Linklater’s Before Midnight (2013), and directed a haunting short in 2012, “The Capsule.” She’s back with her third feature, Chevalier, and pairs with one of the behind-the-scenes names of the cinematic movement, Efthymis Filippou, who wrote three features for Yorgos Lanthimos (including the up and coming The Lobster). The film is about a group of men is returning from a winter fishing trip on a yacht. When a mechanical problem leaves them trapped on their boat, somewhere in the gulf of Saronikos, they will kill their time playing a game they devise called Chevalier. »

5 January 2015 8:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

UK cinema in 2015 has plenty to recommend it. Here are 36 UK films of all genres to look forward to this year…

Dig past the litterfall of Kray Brothers biopics and tales of nubile teens on camping trips gone wrong, and you’ll unearth plenty for the UK film industry to boast about in 2015. From sci-fi romps and thrillers like Robot Overlords and Ex Machina to dramas like High-Rise, comedies like War On Everyone, spy flicks like Spectre and kids’ films like Bill, there’s no shortage of inventive, highly promising cinema coming from these isles.

We’ve included a few choice co-productions in 2015’s pick of the year’s most interesting-looking pictures, which bolsters our list in both size and breadth (and mostly means we Brits can claim partial credit for ace-sounding dystopian flick The Lobster).

In alphabetical order then, here are the 36 UK (or UK-ish) movies we’re excited about seeing this year… »

While several of 2014's best films now on Amazon Prime are also up on Netflix—including Pawel Pawlikowski's Oscar-shortlisted beauty "Ida" and Roger Michell's underseen autumn-years romance "Le Week-End"—Amazon Prime subscribers can enjoy even more this weekend. We've rounded up the best of the best: "Borgman" (dir. Alex van Warmerdam) A dark suburban fairytale that takes cues from Yorgos Lanthimos ("Dogtooth") and Michael Haneke ("Funny Games"), while firmly remaining its own strange beast, "Borgman" hovers perilously over a stiff upper-class family whose bearings are unmoored by the appearance of a mysterious vagrant fellow (Jan Bijvoet). A creepy blast from beginning to end. "Coherence" (dir. James Ward Byrkit) "Coherence" is not just smart science fiction: it's a triumph of crafty »
