Filmski kotiček, 27. junij ― Slo naslov: - Država: ZDA Jezik: angleščina Leto: 2015 Dolžina: 82',  Imdb Žanri: dokumentarni, komedija, drama Slo recenzija: - Režija: Ewan McNicol, Anna Sandilands Scenarij: Ewan McNicol, Anna Sandilands Igrajo: Henry Lewis, Wayne Smith, Zach Warren [ENG] UNCERTAIN is a visually stunning and disarmingly funny portrait of the literal and figurative troubled waters of Uncertain, Texas. In a 94-resident town so tucked away “you’ve got to be lost to find it”, three Uncertain men make their own bids for survival looking to find a more certain future. An ex-convict obsessed with Mr. Ed, a gigantic boar he hunts in order to stay on the straight and narrow. A young idealist with big plans but few prospects looking for a bigger life. And an aging fisherman learning to let go of his youthful ways, and making peace with a fateful moment thirty years ago. All the while Uncertain’s vast, swampy lake is being choked by an aquatic weed, upsetting the natural balance and the town’s only source of livelihood. From award-winning director’s Ewan McNicol and Anna Sandilands, UNCERTAIN is an outstanding feature debut capturing a vivid cast of characters as compelling as any fiction. -Vimeo Ocena

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 t

Filmski kotiček, 22. junij ― Slo naslov: - Država: Irska, VB Jezik: angleščina Leto: 2016 Dolžina: 100' ,  Imdb Žanri: drama, grozljivka  Slo recenzija: - 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.  -Michael Blyth, BFI Ocena

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] Francis, whose daughter was murdered a few years ago, is always watching Christina dance in the night club Exotica.

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.

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."

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.

Johnny and his preteen sister, Jashaun, spend time on horseback when they're not selling illegal liquor or tattoo-designed apparel. Director Chloé Zhao captures the subtleties of a marginalized existence in which the historic culture of a people can't compete on a level playing field with the modern problems of poverty, alcoholism, and violence. Amazingly, she embroiders her tale with moments of breathtaking natural beauty that offset the despair her characters struggle against. SONGS is an auspicious debut feature from a director whose superb eye is informed by the sophisticated and nuanced compassion she brings to her story. -Synopsis courtesy of Film Forum Ocena

Determined to ensure her defendant sees a fair trial amid the media circus, Emma visits the chilling Blackshouam Vila (brilliantly played by Fargass Assandé in a performance reminiscent of The Silence of the Lambs) and works to earn his trust to break his self-imposed silence. As Vila, no longer a child but grown into a grizzled man of middle age, begins to share his history, Emma uncovers the psychological terrors of a youth brainwashed to commit crimes who has grown into a man vacillating between celebrating his atrocities and complaining of his horrific nightmares, haunted by his unfortunate victims. The further Emma digs, the more she finds that implicates government officials in facilitating Vila's murderous rampage. Setting the stage for a showdown in court, Emma is locked in a complicated search for truth in which hero and villain are only shades of gray. Traoré's filmmaking affords his actors an incredible showcase, keeping the tech simple but ratcheting up the tension to its final chilling image. -siff Ocena
