The most effective movie of the year. It certainly will become one of the best films of this decade. Director Fede Álvarez reminds us of the power of cinema with an outstanding horror film that reinvigorates not only the genre but the possibilities of storytelling. Review.
2. ALL THE WAY
Bryan Cranston portrays Lyndon B. Johson, one of the most infamous presidents in US history. The past echoes in our present and into the future. Directed by Jay Roach.
3. KATE PLAYS CHRISTINE
In this documentary Robert Greene approaches the story of Christine Chubbuck (played by Kate Lyn Sheil), a news anchor who killed herself on live TV in 1974. A Hitchcockian mise en scène makes you hold your breath till the very end.
4. CAFÉ SOCIETY
Kristen Stewart’s dazzling beauty and good acting along with Vittorio Storaro’s “envolving” lighting makes this soap–operatic comedy drama a delightful cinematic tidbit. Directed by Woody Allen.
5. MILES AHEAD
Don Cheadle directs and stars in his film portrayal of the great American musician Miles Davis. Beyond a sort of cartoonish and sometimes ridicule depiction of the jazz myth the movie is a good excuse to remember the music and the man behind it.
