Apparently 2017 was the year that cinema died…again. This is basically attributed to Hollywood hitting peak franchise fever…again. I even have a lot of appreciation for the complexities of franchise cinema, and so I hope this fever rages on. I assume the franchise motion pictures released in 2017 presented exciting potentialities for this still-developing mode of blockbuster cinema.

While each actor is suitably funny and interesting in his or her personal right, the film also possesses a sharp comic timing of its own that incessantly cuts in the midst of the self-absorbed characters’ line-readings. This uncomfortably intimate vérité documentary stares unflinchingly at a four-day group-therapy session inside Folsom Prison, the place prisoners and outsiders alike draw forth their long-repressed emotions and problem their deepest masculine assumptions and mores.
Fai bei sogni (Sweet Dreams, Marco Bellocchio, 2016) I‘m a fan of bildungsroman films (bildungsfilms?), and this enchanting, haunting story might feel to many like a retread, even of Bellocchio’s precious films, however what a fascinating and devastating path it’s to walk. This has also been a 12 months of discovering old films at film festivals and/or special retrospectives in cities I go to during my travels.

I can´t include the movie Europa by Miguel Ángel Pérez Blanco for causes of skilled ethics, but when I may include it in this list, the film can be in a very excessive place. Europa is certainly Carla Poggioli one of the most convincing debuts of 2017; it is a movie shot from an absolute vocation as a filmmaker, from the necessity to shoot, from the same uncontrollable need that leads us to watch so many movies.

The movie is each bit as fantastic as Sylvia says.

The Safdie brothers bring their gritty, hallucinatory realism to bear on this propulsive picaresque, following a streetwise hustler (live-wire Robert Pattinson) as he outruns and out-thinks the world at massive, seemingly for the good thing about his brother but really as its personal reward.
