Joe lives his life flitting between past and present, hallucination and reality. Each of her previous movies captures human collapse in slow motion. You Were Never Really Here is a breakdown shot in hyperdrive, lean, economic, utterly ruthless and made with fiery craftsmanship. Let this be the language we use to characterize her reputation as one of the best filmmakers working today.
Fallout shows no real signs of that happening any time soon. Where Bird leaned into the franchise as a literalization of its title, redefining the series by balancing the absurdity of what Cruise was impossibly doing the Burj Khalifa scene is one of the greatest action sequences ever with the awe of bearing witness to what a human person could accomplish if devoid of all Thetans, McQuarrie considers the two pretty much the same thing.
How to Have It All Without Losing Your Soul
The only reaction worthy of such absurdity is awe—and the only American tentpole films worth our awe anymore are those deemed Mission: Impossible. I love these movies. It all works. Verhoeven, in fact, uses Arnold as much as he uses anything else in the budget to tell this darkly exuberant story, from the contorted confusion of the set-up right on through to the eye-popping finale.
It results in a sci-fi screed written in the form of a hundred Ahh-nuld faces, absurd and unforgettable. For as many times as Dick has been adapted, this is perhaps the one time the go-for-broke energy and imagination of his work has made it into the cinema Blade Runner is something else entirely. Total Recall may have little in common with the actual content of the story it blows up, but it knows the vibe.
And PKD vibes are the best kind. Oppenheimer amplifies those conflicting reactions further by introducing a daring gambit: In the process of interviewing these butchers—who brag about raping and killing their victims including the occasional beheading —the director asked if they would be interested in re-creating their murders through fictionalized, filmed scenes.
The men—most notably a gentleman named Anwar Congo, who was one of the death squad leaders—leapt at the chance.

What follows is a literally nauseous glimpse into the minds of men who have spent decades mentally escaping the inescapable. Trouble Every Day Year: Director: Claire Denis Messing with genre is more a means to an end for Claire Denis than it is a celebration of the Fulci phantasmagoria and giallo sensibility and Eureopean art house erotic thrillers she so clearly loves, and Trouble Every Day is her ultimately harvesting the misasma emanating from the ways in which she bends these kinds of movies to her will.
The film stinks of sex and death, rolls around in it, characters licking it dripping from the corners of the screen. It follows newlyweds Dr. Which must be the point: Human sexuality is an inscrutable thing, and monogamy strains against that inscrutability. Perhaps, Denis shrugs, we were never meant for one person; perhaps we were only meant to tear each other apart. Detour Year: Director: Edgar G. Ulmer A Poverty Row staple with an unknown cast peering into the post-war dark night of the soul, Detour has come to embody the best film noir has to offer—namely, that budget and schedule concerns indirectly enriched the artistic product, paring down a weightier script and even more bloated source novel into a precise, exquisitely sharp bit of storytelling economy.
As much an efficient encapsulation of its genre as it is a noir drowning entirely within its own hell-bent nightmare, Detour is most impressive for how gracefully Ulmer can get the most out of so little. The Handmaiden Year: Director: Park Chan-wook There are few filmmakers on Earth capable of crafting the experience of movies like The Handmaiden so exquisitely while maintaining both plot inertia and a sense of fun. The film begins somberly enough, settling on a tearful farewell scene as Sook-hee Kim Tae-ri is carted off to the manor of the reclusive and exorbitantly rich aristocrat Kouzuki Cho Jin-woong , where she will act as servant to his niece, Lady Hideko Kim Min-hee.
He only wants her for her money. Park has designed the film as a puzzle box where each step taken to find the solution answers one question while posing new ones at the same time.
