The films by “the kids from independent cinema” don’t usually have sequels, but UPA 2! has enough eccentricity and self-confidence to embark on such task. The kids from the first UPA! had received the Argentine Competition’s main award at Bafici 2007 –in 2015, they main...

The mass murder in 1915 by the Ottomans of the minority Armenian population is still a hugely controversial subject, especially in Turkey where there is resistance to assuming a retrospective burden of genocidal shame.

The movie is based on the novel of the same name by Vincenzo Cerami, the future screenwriter of Benigni films, although at the time he was primarily Pasolini’s ex pupil. And it is no coincidence that the book places itself at the core of reflection on an Italian society in the throes of deep t...

There actually is a pigeon here, in the beginning: a stuffed one, therewith past wondering; some zombie-like-looking human gawks at it in seemingly dull incomprehension. The film’s anti-heroes, a pair of salesmen specialized in fun novelties like vampire teeth (with extra-long fangs!) are met...

This is a tricky film. Premiered in Sundance and exec produced by actor Elijah Wood, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a US film that presents itself as “the first Iranian vampire western.” It’s a cinema-mix, a cross between Jim Jarmusch, David Lynch, and a vampire girl dressed a...

In some alley in San Francisco’s Chinatown, Jack Burton’s truck is parked. And the verbose, smart-ass, mainly insufferable Burton is determined to get it back, whatever the cost; or, rather, whatever it costs his (not quite) friend and expert martial artist Wang. While he’s at it,...
