D: Philip Gröning.
S: Josef Mattes, Julia Zange, Urs Jucker, Stefan Konarske, Zita Aretz, Karolina Porcari, Vitus Zeplichal.
They are both tedious idiots. A pretty interminable 174 minute sibling drama. Unending cod-philosophy that even makes recent Terrence Malick movies seem vaguely profound.
OLD LOVE ★★★½☆
D: Park Kiyong.
S: Yoo Jung-ah, Kim Tae-hoon, Kim Moonhee.
A surprise meeting after decades. Bone-deep melancholy and regrets hang in the air, enhanced by vivid cinematography. I love a vague and ambiguous ending, but this might be slightly too oblique.
D: Steven Soderbergh (Logan Lucky, Behind the Candelabra, Side Effects, Magic Mike, Haywire, Contagion, The Informant!, The Girlfriend Experience, Che: Part Two, Che: Part One, Ocean’s 13, The Good German, Bubble, Ocean’s 12, Solaris, Full Frontal, Ocean’s 11, Traffic, Erin Brockovich, The Limey, Out of Sight, King of the Hill; Sex, Lies, and Videotape).
S: Claire Foy, Joshua Leonard, Jay Pharoah, Juno Temple, Aimee Mullins, Amy Irving.
Soderbergh's gripping, brilliantly shot, thriller made on an iPhone. Weaves in:
-Damnation of insurance systems relationship to healthcare.
-Impact on women of stalkers.
-The way psychiatric patient credibility is undermined.
