[SLO]

Sivolasi Brad Pitt je prekaljeni 4-zvezdični general Glen McMahon, utelešena samodisciplina in vzorni prototip ameriškega odločnega duha (fiktivna inačica upokojenega generala Stanleyja A. McChrystala, ki je avtorju služil za model tega lika), ki naj bi v obubožani puščavski državi vzpostavil red, potem ko je njegovemu predhodniku to spodletelo. Priljubljeni vojskovodja in njegov štab pribočnikov hitro ugotovijo, da je njihova vloga v resnici protislovno administrativne in formalistične narave: proti komu naj bi se pravzaprav borili? Domorodce je težko prepričati, da so njihovi zavojevalci "dobri fantje" s hvalevrednimi nameni. Resnična bitka bo potekala na fronti zahrbtnih diplomatov, oportunističnih koalicijskih sil in hinavskih politikov; predsednik Obama pa za vrhovnega poveljnika sil v Afganistanu preprosto ne najde časa, saj je polno zaposlen z domačimi zadevami in volilnimi obljubami. Kako naj odpadniški vojščak in očetovski lik 'Glenimal' McMahon povzdigne moralo svojih čedalje bolj otopelih, zmedenih mož? - Filmoljub

[ENG]

An absurdist war story for our times, writer-director David Michôd recreates a U.S. General’s roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody – raising the specter of just where the line between them lies today. His is an exploration of a born leader’s ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly. At the story’s core is Brad Pitt’s sly take on a successful, charismatic four-star general who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by a journalist’s no-holds-barred exposé.

Režija: Liam Gavin
Scenarij: Liam Gavin
Igrajo: Steve Oram, Catherine Walker, Susan Loughnane

[ENG]


Sophia is grief-stricken, overwhelmed with sadness since the untimely death of her child. In a desperate attempt to achieve some form of closure, she reaches out to Solomon, an occultist with experience in an ancient invocation ritual that Sophia believes will allow her to make contact with her deceased child. Locked away in a remote country house, the disparate pair undergo the long and arduous incantation process, risking both their mental and physical safety as they attempt to access a world beyond our understanding. Both an exhaustive and intense study of ceremonial magic, and an affecting exploration of the paralysing nature of grief, Liam Gavin’s striking chamber piece defies easy categorisation. In an eye-opening departure from the comic roles for which he is best known, Steve Oram makes for an impressively overbearing occult practitioner, while the superb Catherine Walker provides the film’s gut-wrenching emotional backbone as a mother driven to desperate measures.

Igrajo: Bruce Greenwood, Elias Koteas, Don McKellar, Mia Kirshner, Arsinée Khanjian, Sarah Polley

[SLO]


"Vprašati se moraš: kaj je to osebo pripeljalo sem?" izreče stranski lik na začetku filma. Gre pravzaprav za vprašanje,ki odzvanja v vseh najboljših Egoyanovih filmih, a v Eksotiki ima še dodaten, bolj dobeseden pomen, saj se velik del filma dogaja v strip klubu, ki pa ga junak filma ne obiskuje zaradi običajnih razlogov. Ker je Egoyan mojster v strateškem zadrževanju informacij, gledalec potrebuje precej časa, da ugotovi, kaj se pravzprav dogaja, in še več časa je potrebnega, da se številne niti zgodbe združijo. In ko končno se, se Eksotika izkaže za pretresljivo katarzično raziskovanje posledic tragedije in načinov, na katere se ljudje poskušamo spopadati z neobvladljivo žalostjo. -Kinoteka

[ENG]


Neil (Michael Johnston) is an introverted, questioning high school freshman. Lacking any friends IRL, his main social outlet is the steamy fan fiction he writes about Vanguard, the brawny, galaxy-hopping hero of a popular sci-fi franchise. When his stories are exposed in class Neil is mortified, but the slightly older, effortlessly cool Julia (Hannah Marks) comes to his defense. An erotic fan fic writer herself, Julia pushes Neil to publish his stories to an online "adult" forum, where they quickly grab the attention of the site moderator, Denis (Michael Ian Black). When Neil is invited to present his work at a comic con live-read event, he has to face the fact that Denis' interest in him may be more than simply professional... perhaps like his own feelings for Julia.

Via Liffe


Zastavonoša francoskega LGBT filma Alain Guiraudie nam po izvrstnem Tujcu z jezera tokrat postreže z zelo drugačnim, izrazito antifeminističnim pogledom na starševstvo. 

Filmski režiser Leo na jugu Francije išče volka za svoj naslednji film. Med enim izmed ogledov se zaplete v razmerje s pastirko Marie, ki mu devet mesecev pozneje rodi otroka. Marie nato trpi za poporodno depresijo in izgubi vero v Lea, ki nenehno odhaja in prihaja, zato nenadoma zapusti moža in otroka. Leo se znajde povsem sam z otrokom, za katerega mora zdaj skrbeti brez ženske pomoči. Ni mu lahko, a globoko v sebi so mu razmere povsem pogodu. Po zaporedju nepričakovanih in nenavadnih srečanj, v katerih išče navdih za svoj naslednji film, Leo stori vse, kar je treba, da se obdrži na nogah. 


"Moški in ženske. Pravzaprav nikoli nisem snemal ničesar drugega; zgodbe o ljudeh, ki so skupaj sami. Hotel sem preobrniti podobo 'samohranilca', prikazati, da obstajajo moški, ki sami vzgajajo otroka, morda ker si tega želijo, prav tako kot ženske, ki nikogar več ne osupnejo z odločitvijo, da bodo imele otroka same. Ali navsezadnje ni to cilj filmskega junaka? Vzgajati otroka brez težav, ki jih prinašajo matere? /.../ Vedno pravijo 'vse zgodbe so že povedane', vendar se ne strinjam: vsaj Ostati pokončen je značilen primer zgodbe, ki je v kinu nikoli ne vidite." (Alain Guiraudie)

[ENG]

Via Liffe


Torchbearer of the French LGBT cinema who has gripped audiences with his brilliant Stranger by the Lake, Alain Guiraudie's latest picture is an alternative, expressly antifeminist take on parenthood. 

Filmmaker Leo is searching for a wolf in the south of France. During a scouting excursion he is seduced by Marie, a free-spirited shepherdess. Nine months later she gives birth to their child. Suffering from post-natal depression and with no faith in Leo, who comes and goes without warning, Marie abandons both of them. Leo finds himself alone, with a baby to care for. It's not easy, but deep down, he loves it. Through a series of unexpected and unusual encounters, struggling to find inspiration for his next film, Leo will do whatever it takes to stay standing.

"Men and women. I've never really filmed anything else; the stories of people who are alone together. And I wanted to invert the image of the 'single parent', to show that there are cases where men raise a baby on their own - maybe because they want to - exactly like a woman, who no longer shocks anyone by having a baby on her own. In the final count, is that not what the film's hero was after? To have the child without the hassle of the mother? /.../ They always say "all the stories have been told," but I disagree: Staying Vertical, at least, is typical of the kind of story you never see in cinema." (Alain Guiraudie)

By making a satisfactory crowdpleaser that doesn’t overextend itself, Swanberg has delivered his most traditional movie to date — and for this prolific filmmaker, who spent ages defying conventions, that’s nothing short of a radical step forward. -Eric Kohn, IndieWire

[ENG]


The latest Netflix true-crime series to take the world by storm is The Keepers, a seven-part series focused on the unsolved murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik.
Baltimore nun Cesnik was murdered at the age of 26 in 1969 and, to this day, both the identity of her killer and cause of death have been shrouded in secrecy.
Viewers have been stunned by the twists and turns of the investigation that was spearheaded by Gemma Hoskins and Abbie Schaub, two former students of Archbishop Keough, the school where Cesnik taught at the time of her death.
Many articles have gone so far as claimed that the Ryan White-directed series is even superior to Netflix's other true crime sensation, Making a Murderer.
