Actress Jirina Bohdalová will receive the President’s Award at the upcoming 51st Karlovy Vary Intl. Film Festival.

Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Baskin (Can Evrenol)

It starts off with a late night dinner scene between a quintet of cops telling crazy stories and losing their temper with the help straight out of a Tarantino movie and continues on its descent to hell with a writhing, mashing, sexual bloodletting orgy calling to mind E. Elias Merhige’s Begotten. This is Can Evrenol‘s debut feature Baskin (adapted from his »
