Hill of Freedom

Like the passage of time, Hong Sangsoo’s cinema keeps going. Hill of Freedom adds to an unequaled filmography in current cinema that seems to distill into films that are more and more perfect and sober as it grows. In a film world that seems to only pay attention to technical feats and formal exaggerations, Hong’s universe continues to...

Hockney

Through wonderful archival footage, including the Hockney family’s own home movies, and interviews with family, friends, and the artist himself, Wright develops an extraordinary portrait of a man who grew up among the privations of postwar Britain to embrace, in his art and in his life, the dreams and fantasies of legendary places: London, Ne...

Hotline

Hotline inquires into the everyday work of an Israeli NGO that fights against two almost unbreakable forces: xenophobia and bureaucracy. Volunteers assist illegal African immigrants who arrive in Israel escaping repression and torture but end up trapped in an atrocious limbo, labeled as “infiltrators” and imprisoned in growing detention...

How We Used to Live

“The beach awaits below the pavement, but what lies beyond the city?”, actor Ian McShane’s voice over asks at a magical moment of How We Used to Live. The city is London, and it is spread out here through the protein-filled archive of the British Film Institute like a huge tapestry, or a landscape, or an epic visual poem. From its...

Idilio

Idyll presents itself as a love story. Yes, Camila is in love, “stupid in love”: that’s how the film begins, that’s its first chapter. Since she’s in love, she sees the word with an enthusiast smile, maybe too enthusiast. Sebastián, her friend and confidant, listens to and tolerates her. He even tries to remain...

What is happening in the basements of Austria?

Into the Blue

This looks like the tiny cousin of the famous People on Sunday, where director Eugen Schüfftan was the cinematographer. This is not only his only film as a director, it is one of the first German sound films. Filmed in late summer of 1929, it’s like a moment shot of Germany, still mocking the economic breakdown. The crisis as opportunity...
