This Week In Trailers: Suicide Tourist, The Courier, The Song of Names, Slayer – The Repentless Killogy

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week, we try to end it all, get arty, pledge allegiance to Slayer, and see what will soon be in the dollar theater a week after it’s rele...

Netflix Trailer for Italian Indie Film About 'The Man Without Gravity'

"The world isn't how you think it is." "Why not? This is my life." Netflix has debuted an official trailer for an indie film from Italy titled The Man Without Gravity, also known as L'uomo senza gravità in Italian. This film seems similar, in a few ways, to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. But instead of a baby being born old, this baby has no connection to gravity. He just floats. A gravity-defying baby raised in seclusion matures into an extraordinary man—and an international celebrity...

Martin Scorsese Doubles Down on Superhero Movie Criticism, Says Theaters Need to Show More “Narrative Films”

Martin Scorsese stirred up an intense debate recently when he compered superhero movies to theme parks and excluded them from being classified as cinema, at least in his mind. The commentary felt a little close-minded, but knowing the kind of filmmaker Scorsese is, it’s easy to see where he’s coming from with that kind of criticism. But now he’s doubled down on that criticism, and his latest comments are a little more incendiary, somewhat out of touch, and maybe a bit misguided. Martin Scorse...

‘Varda by Agnès’ Review: A Fittingly Vibrant Sendoff to a Master Filmmaker [NYFF]

Inspiration, creation, sharing. As the late Agnès Varda put it herself, these are the three key tenets of her filmmaking process. Varda’s final film, an encapsulation of her decades-spanning career through the lens of her masterclass seminars, brilliantly distills her ethos into a documentary. Despite being made with clear knowledge of her own mortality, Varda by Agnès never feels like a somber mausoleum for her talents. It’s a living, breathing document that keeps her spirit and creativity acc...

‘Ride Your Wave’ Review: A Sweet And Heartfelt Anime About Grief [Sitges 2019]

Masaaki Yuasa has made a career out of weird yet beautifully crafted anime.

Though at first glance his newest feature, Ride Your Wave, may seem like his most accessible film yet, it still offers an emotional and eye-popping visual feast that is as cheesy and predictable as it is charming, t...

Vamp or Not? Killer Sofa

First thing to say about this 2019 New Zealand film that was directed by Bernie Rao is around the title and poster. The title is inaccurate as we are looing at a recliner not a sofa and the poster adds a maw of teeth that are not there in the film. The second thing to say is that I don’t do it on purpose… I watched the film as some horror fluff not expecting that we’d look at this as a ‘Vamp or Not?’ Indeed, not suspecting that we’d get a myth type that we know of old. The film starts with a mo...
