A “monstrous mutt” delivers in a wry and amusing French film; the best investigative documentary since last year’s ‘Cold Case Hammarskjold;’; and a must-see for WW II buffs.
A labor of love, ‘CREEM’ is an entertaining tribute to an irreverent (and sometimes rather rude) magazine. ‘A Thousand Cuts’ is a much more sombre affair while ‘Sunless Shadows’ is worthwhile.
A compelling bar-set feature is the best film of the year so fa; and BAMPFA continues to offer worthwhile rarities through its Watch From Home program.
A documentary about our very own Congresswoman, a selection of Madeline Anderson short subjects at PFA, and a film that just might have you slapping your forehead in disbelief.
Atom Egoyan’s ‘Guest of Honour’ gives David Thewlis the sort of meaty lead role he hasn’t had in years; while ‘Where Sleeping Dogs Lie’ distracts and ‘Jeanne’ puzzles.
‘Miss Juneteenth,’ a compelling tale of multi-generational family conflict, is a perfect companion piece to ‘The Last Tree.’ Also: kitty antics for cat people.
If you’ve ever been mesmerized by the atrocious piece of cinematic swill that is ‘Showgirls,’ you really do need to see ‘You Don’t Nomi.’
An intelligently written and heartwarming comedy-drama starring Bill Nighy. Also recommended: two great films available for free.
San Francisco’s annual celebration of Asian and diaspora cinema will be coming to a device near you, albeit in a curtailed form, starting Wednesday, May 13 and continuing through Friday, May 22.
