D: Ali Abbasi (Shelley).
S: Eva Melander, Eero Milonoff, Viktor Åkerblom.
A very rare cinema occurrence: An uncategorisable film. Continually evolving, it feels like a lot of thought has gone in. Disturbing, as you'd predict from the author of 'Let the Right One In'.
BISBEE ’17 [documentary] ★★★½☆
D: Robert Greene (Kate Plays Christine, Actress).
A documentary on the rule of law, working conditions, racism, and mass murder. One hundred years later, a town confronts its past. Reminds of THE ACT OF KILLING, but is not in the same league.
WOMAN AT WAR (Kona fer í stríð) ★★★★★
D: Benedikt Erlingsson.
S: Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir, Jóhann Sigurðarson, Juan Camillo Roman Estrada.
A choir mistress/environmental activist takes on Icelandic heavy industry. A film that is both funny and furious, as well as being utterly gripping.
