  • THAT KIND OF SUMMER

    Denis Côté Canada, 2022

    A MUBI Release
    LUMINARIES

    Set in a sun-dappled retreat for women with nymphomania, this drama from the ever-dynamic Denis Côté was written with a sexologist but, distinctively, administers no decisive cure. Obsessions continue to ripple across the film’s waters, in a radical acceptance of how people live and find pleasure.

  • THE BALCONY MOVIE

    Paweł Łoziński Poland, 2021

    A MUBI Release
    VIEWFINDER

    In Paweł Łoziński’s cleverly inventive film, a humble patch of pavement in Warsaw might hold the key to the mysteries of the universe.

  • THE GIRL WITHOUT HANDS

    Sébastien Laudenbach France, 2016

    A Faustian pact with the Devil is brought to life in exquisitely hand-painted images in this deliciously dark adaptation of a Brothers Grimm story. Expansively shapeshifting before our eyes, Sébastien Laudenbach’s startlingly original animation unfolds like a shadowy and half-remembered fever dream.

  • HAIL MARY

    Jean-Luc Godard Switzerland, 1985

    FOR EVER GODARD

    Godard’s ‘60s films are legend, but his career went far beyond the French New Wave. Roundly condemned by the Vatican for its risky retelling of the Virgin Mary’s story, this is a highlight of his under-rated ‘80s period, as cinema’s great experimenter refused to soften his provocative edge.

  • HALMAR

    Lars von Trier Denmark, 2022

    A MUBI Release

    Lars von Trier returns to the original haunted hospital of his ’90s TV sensation with this dazzling limited event series. Set in the run-up to Christmas, The Kingdom Exodus serves an incomparable blend of horror and humor on a compulsively entertaining path towards the promise of Armageddon.

    THE FILMS OF PARK CHAN-WOOK

    Park Chan-wook ended his “Vengeance Trilogy” in style—and to great blockbuster success—with this characteristically twisted and baroque thriller, whose star Lee Young-ae will forever haunt our dreams. A stunning descent to the dark side, marking the end of the series’ rocky road towards salvation.

  • EXPERIMENTER

    Michael Almereyda United States, 2015

    Peter Sarsgaard has an unnerving knack for bringing brilliant, somewhat vain intellectuals to life—and his high-wire performance as a daring sociologist in Experimenter is no exception. Between actor, character, and director Michael Almereyda, cleverness is off the charts in this unorthodox biopic.

  • THE ROAD

    John Hillcoat United States, 2009

    An electrifying adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Road is both a brutal examination of mortality and a study of father-son relationships. With raw performances from Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron, it perfectly captures the dark mood of a post-apocalyptic world.

  • THE HEADLESS WOMAN

    Lucrecia Martel Argentina, 2008

    Submerged in the fugue state of an affluent woman suspected to have blood on her hands, The Headless Woman is mysteriously elliptical. With an air of unnamed haunting, this final film in Lucrecia Martel’s “Salta Trilogy” alludes to the disappeared people buried in Argentina’s ruthless past.

  • ZAMA

    Lucrecia Martel Argentina, 2017

    Nine years after The Headless Woman, Argentine master Lucrecia Martel returns with this ingenious adaptation of the frenzied first-person novel Zama, brilliantly inserting her own contemporary commentary on masculinity and colonialism. A singular and stupefying, cutting-edge period drama.

  • ROSE PLAYS JULIE

    Joe Lawlor, Christine Molloy Ireland, 2019

    Rose Plays Julie is an icy revenge thriller from the brilliant Irish filmmaking duo Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor (Helen). With a tightly-coiled lead performance from Ann Skelly, this slippery exploration of doubling and identity offers a masterclass in contained suspense.

  • THE HUNT

    Thomas Vinterberg Denmark, 2012

  • LOST ILLUSIONS

    Xavier Giannoli France, 2021

    Winner of multiple awards, Xavier Giannoli’s lush adaptation of Balzac’s masterpiece smolders with the sins and pleasures of 19th-century Paris. Led by a dazzling Benjamin Voisin, this lavish parable of literary fame and moral decay elegantly mirrors our own era of misinformation.

  • SYMPATHY FOR MR. VENGEANCE

    Park Chan-wook South Korea, 2002

    South Korean genre maestro Park Chan-wook teamed up with actor Song Kang-ho (Parasite) to kick off his “Vengeance” trilogy in style. Endlessly inventive in its visual imagination, and with a sly political undercurrent, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance is a deliciously cynical kidnap-gone-wrong thriller.

  • FOR EVER MOZART

    Jean-Luc Godard France, 1996

    Partly motivated by Susan Sontag’s staging of Waiting for Godot in Sarajevo, For Ever Mozart brings Godard back to the Bosnian War, a focus of his latter career. Told in four semi-linked episodes, the film is a melancholic, yet divine, reflection on cinema’s role in high art and the real world.

  • HIGH-RISE

    Ben Wheatley United Kingdom, 2015

    ADAPTATIONS

    Ben Wheatley’s take on J.G. Ballard’s dystopian classic evokes the cinema of Nicolas Roeg, originally slated to direct the film in the ‘70s. With a glitzy cast including Tom Hiddleston, Elisabeth Moss and Jeremy Irons, the film’s escalating class tensions ignite a madness that descends into mayhem.

  • MANON

    Henri-Georges Clouzot France, 1949

    Transporting Abbé Prévost’s controversial 1731 novel to a postwar context, Henri-Georges Clouzot’s volatile adaptation links its infamous femme fatale to the opportunism that bred under the Nazi occupation of France. When deception becomes a means of survival, the purity of love is put to the test.

    Antonio Marziale United States, 2022

    A MUBI Release
    BRIEF ENCOUNTERS

  • OCTOBER COUNTRY

    Michael Palmieri, Donal Mosher United States, 2009

    Cycles can be difficult to break when opportunity is limited. For lack of a way out, bad patterns end up being passed from one generation to another. As a family tries with admirable good humor to shake its specters and turn new leaves, one son attends to these efforts in intimate documentary form.

  • THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

    Matthew Rankin Canada, 2019

    Matthew Rankin’s ingenious debut feature is a hilarious and visually stunning reimagining of a Canadian Prime Minister’s rise to power. Not your ordinary history lesson, the film takes inspiration from various film movements—including German Expressionism—to form a wacky, lavishly creative treat.

  • A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE

    Roy Andersson Sweden, 2014

    One of today’s most unique auteurs, Roy Andersson reached new heights of absurdity with this deadpan tragicomedy, a Golden Lion winner at the Venice Film Festival. Told in episodic tableaux, Andersson’s hilariously existential scenes throb with a strange—and strangely satisfying—desperation.

  • DAUGHTER OF THE NILE

    Hou Hsiao-hsien Taiwan, 1987

    GOOD WOMEN: TWO BY HOU
    HSIAO-HSIEN

    Hou Hsiao-hsein’s Daughter of the Nile stars pop musician Yang Lin as the center of a story revealing the shimmering ephemera of youth culture in 1980s globalized Taipei. Delicately crafted, Hou’s majestic family drama finds beauty, and profundity, in the stuff of everyday life.

    Taiwanese master Hou Hsiao-hsien reunites with his Millennium Mambo and Three Times star Shu Qi for the sublime The Assassin. This historical wuxia finds Shu’s enigmatic woman knight returning from exile and torn between love and duty. An elliptical, enchanting experience.

  • APPLES

    Christos Nikou Greece, 2020

    An amnesia pandemic is the backdrop for this subtly poignant and elegantly composed tragicomedy.

  • NO ORDINARY MAN

    Aisling Chin-Yee, Chase Joynt Canada, 2020

    Billy Tipton! Maybe you know the name from the inspirational roll call of Le Tigre’s riot grrl classic, “Hot Topic.” With an array of documentary methods, No Ordinary Man expands that celebratory shout-out to explore the legacy of the jazz virtuoso, a luminary in the trans-masculine community.
