What is “The Avengers” director doing in a romantic comedy inspired by Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing”? I’ll let you know what he’s doing: he has written and directed it, he has composed and recorded the score and he’s even helmed the production, just to prove he’s a little more than every comic book nerd’s new favorite director.

Shot in black and white with rich comedic overtones, “Much Ado About Nothing” is a bet destined to be won, as Whedon delivers one of the most unconventional silver screen adaptations of the beloved stage classic. Shot in 12 days at his own home, it maintains the Shakespearean text untouched mining the director’s raw talent, a man who can navigate the demands of a 220-million-dollar blockbuster with the same ease he can deal with the challenges of indie cinema.

      Kris and Jeff are inexplicably drawn together by an irresistible force, unveiling a forgotten past they never knew existed.

      Spring Breakers

      Harmony Korine's latest provocative effort is, without any hint of exaggeration, the guiltiest pleasure of the film season, capturing four young girls in a violent, heavily sexualized Spring Break frenzy.

      My Sweet Pepper Land

      My Sweet Pepper Land

      A bitter sense of humour and atmospheric musical inserts complete a modest work of art, which rightfully gained a lot of supporters in the last Cannes Film Festival.

      Jiseul

      Jiseul

      Based on a bloody page in South Korean history that is all but forgotten, Muel O. zeroes in on the attempts of an entire village to escape certain death by hiding out in underground caves, faced with freezing temperatures, starvation and fear. Avoiding a traditional reenactment, the director chooses to highlight intimate moments on both sides of the fence.

      The relationship between two very different men filtered through eight different emotional states they experience: pain, desire, happiness, jealousy, peace, love and anger. Significant and insignificant moments in their common trajectory spark an exploration of the chaotic universe of love and the tumultuous emotions that follow suit.
