Official Competition

Even great actors couldn’t save this cinematic nightmare.

Drive My Car

This is a widely praised film where critics say you won’t notice it lasts 3 hours. I did!

Benedetta

The Virgin Mary didn’t come to Benedetta, Benedetta “came” to the Virgin Mary!

Titane

It won the Palme d’Or at Cannes this year. The competition had to be weak.

Another Round

This film is one of 15 movies in the running for an Oscar nomination in the Best International Feature Film category.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

A dazzling, romantic romp involving two women in 1770 France.

Parasite

Having won the Palme d’or at the Cannes Film Festival in May, it is overwhelmingly likely to win this year’s Oscar for the best Foreign Film.

Birds of Passage

This film has some style and substance though I must warn you that it cannot be classified as entertaining.

Everybody Knows

A better title for this film would have been Nobody Knows and Most Audience Members Won’t Care.
