Last Flag Flying (2017)
What's good? It's quite frankly a hell of a shame how little attention and love Todd Haynes' adaptation of young fiction book Wonderstruck has received during this awards season, after its Cannes premiere elicited high hopes about its Oscar chances. Ignoring the unfortunate lack of marketing or campaigning from Amazon Studios (opting instead to push Last Flag Flying and Wonder Wheel -- a decision which didn't do them much good), Wonderstruck's main crime doesn't seem to be any true flaw in its material but the fact that it's such a quiet and small movie. Even its champions give it muted praise rather than rapturous acclaim...

Last Flag Flying will open in the UK and Ireland on 26 January 2018, through Curzon Artificial Eye and Amazon Studios.

The first leak from the group occurred on Christmas Eve when Richard Linklater’s “Last Flag Flying” appeared online, accompanied by a note that read: “Merry Christmas and stay tuned.” A few hours later, the likes of “Call Me by Your Name,” “Lady Bird,” and “I, Tonya” leaked online.

Ironically, Hive-CM8 wrote the following message when leaking the movies: “Don’t forget watching a screener is not like the real thing, you should still all go to the cinema and support the Producers,”
“We are especially sharing this for the people who can’t visit the cinema due to illness, or because it is a limited release that doesn’t make it to their country,” the note read.
Torrent Freak is reporting that Grega Gerwig’s Lady Bird, Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me by Your Name and Craig Gillespie’s I, Tonya all appeared on online pirate sites, ready to be viewed illegally.

In a year filled with hacking and online leaks, the biggest being the HBO scandal from earlier this year, this report is all the more troubling, for it appears that the risks associated
The movies were evidently ripped from awards-screener DVDs by Hive-CM8, a well-known piracy collective that purports to have altruistic motives.
“We are especially sharing this for the people who cant [sic] visit the cinema due to illness, or because it is a limited release that doesn’t make it to their country,” the group wrote in the release notes. Variety has not confirmed the authenticity of the pirated copies, which were first reported by piracy-news site TorrentFreak.
The pirates added, “Don’t forget watching a Screener is not like the real thing, you should still all go to the cinema and support the Producers.”
“Lady Bird,” “Call Me by Your Name” and “I, Tonya” are contenders in various 2018 Academy Awards categories after garnering critical huzzahs. Variety chief film critic Owen Gleiberman included all three
