A playful and insightful doc about an aesthetic genius in my opinion. Ethan Hawke plays a minister suffering a crisis of conscience about his role in this fallen world, both on a personal and too level.

The aesthetic appeal here is that, for much of the film, the architectural wonders are in the foreground and the humans are the backdrop. He clearly has affection for tagney misguided, egomaniacal dreamer.

Not a scary ghost story, but a haunting one. Two films that deal with the tricky state of race relations in this country, the first by a first-time director, the latter by longtime veteran Spike Lee.

  MAGICAL DOREMI NAISHO EPISODE 13

This low-budget narrative film has plenty to say about the struggles of low-income families, but its true focus is on the irrepressible spirit of children.

Easily the most visceral movie experience of the year, the story it tells still resonates 50 years later. Social media makes her journey all the more perilous, and heartbreakingly funny. Boning up on the story of Iphigenia should help you make some sense out of this often mystifying movie. A classic that will never show its age. We may never have to live through another Stalinist regime but the ridiculous jockeying for power is ever relevant.

Actress Greta Gerwig mined some of her own life story for her directorial debut, a movie about a Sacramento high school misfit who insists on being called Lady Bird. The Death of Stalin. Quite possibly the most cerebral director alive, Peter Greenaway allows his teenage daughter to quiz him about the singularities of his own films, using ttangney favorite technique of his own, the alphabet as an organizing principle.

Psychological warfare never looked so stylish. The ingeniously perverse Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos turns his sights to 18th century British royalty, with a scathing account of a vicious rivalry for the affections of a sad-sack Queen Anne.

Actress Elsie Fisher could not be better as year-old Kayla who must endure an excruciating 8th grade in order to come out the other side.

The main characters — the mom Frances McDormandthe sheriff Woody Harrelsonand his deputy Sam Rockwell — start off as razor-sharp caricatures but they all deepen unexpectedly. A very successful commercial film with an art-film idea. And despite the onslaught of hilarious one-liners in the midst of the most farcical of scenarios, the film never loses sight of the tragedies just outside the camera frame.

  MARVELOUS MELMO EPISODE 11

When his latest muse tries to upend his expectations, a battle of wills ensues. At its heart is a mother-daughter relationship that is so emotionally fraught, it makes you squirm, but you stay put because it also rings uncomfortably true.

The best movie of starred a guy in a bed sheet!

A voice-cast that includes the likes of Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, and Scarlett Johansson serves the clever script well. This tangne a movie full of pain and rage and humor and grace and violence.

The anachronistic vulgarities and the occasional distorted lenswork also slyly undercut the supposed propriety of the upper crust. Six-year-old Moonie may be living a rootless existence with her financially strapped single mom on the outskirts of Tomm, but to her, the world of cheap motels is full of wondrous possibilities. Columbus, Indiana is a mecca for modernist architecture who knew? A blistering look at one particular incident of police brutality during the inner city riots in Detroit.

The flat-out funniest film of the year. That these suitors are both women only provides added dimensions to the nastiness of the milieu. Black humor at its best.
