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.

Cold War

Cold War is one of the five foreign films nominated for an Oscar this year. Sure, it is in subtitles, but who cares when you’re watching a significant movie?

Shoplifters

A unique, captivating Japanese film in subtitles that involved a drama that I have never seen on the big screen.

Foxtrot

SPOILER ALERT: Given my feeling that few of you will see this film, I’ve taken the liberty to describe certain scenes central to my review.

13 Minutes

Had Hitler only spoken 13 minutes longer…thus the film’s title.

Frantz

As Frantz’ father says in this film, “Aren’t parents responsible for encouraging their soldier sons to go to their grave for unknown reasons.”

Land of Mine

What a pity that all wars can’t end with giving immunity to the soldiers fighting for a defeated enemy as we did with Confederate soldiers after the Civil War.

The Salesman

An interesting movie that was “okay” at best. If you want to spend an evening getting incredibly bored, then go see The Salesman and Moonlight back-to-back.
