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.

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. After robbing a fast-food restaurant, the four luscious schoolgirls unleash their female spunk upon the most risky and out-of-control vacation of their lives, unavoidably joining forces with a nebulous gangsta rap singer (James Franco in one of the most unexpected performances he has ever delivered) with a shady agenda.

Gulping down gallons of alcohol and doing endless quantities of recreational drugs, Faith, Candy, Britt and Cotty are caught up in one of those strange incidents that only take place during Spring Break and that’s where they should stay. Libidinous explosions and scenes destined to become future classics are beckoning in a film that can only be described as a crossover between a hormonal teenage comedy, a Britney Spears music video and Brian de Palma’s “Scarface” K.Th.

      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.

      Much Ado About Nothing

      Much Ado About Nothing

      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.

      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.

      India Blues

      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.
