A moving examination of performance and personal liberty in the face of religious oppression, Hidden is a tender and intimate mystery that builds to a piercing conclusion.

  • Bungalow

    Bungalow

    A young man goes AWOL in Bungalow — a film uniquely attuned to a slow-burning despair barely contained by its outwardly ordinary appearance. The hugely impressive first feature from Köhler — indicative of the low-key yet deeply existential filmmaking would become characteristic of the Berlin School.

  • In My Room

    In My Room

    Recalibrating the end of the world as an apocalypse of identity, In My Room is a profound spin on “Robinson Crusoe” from Berlin School director Ulrich Köhler.

  • Endless Night

    Endless Night

    Cinema often turns to the past for answers about the present, but no other film has captured Spain’s postwar malaise like Eloy Enciso’s stunning nocturne. Poignant memoirs, Bressonian acting, and jaw-dropping chiaroscuros make this study in fascism an entrancing journey into the depths of the night.

    Lucky Chan-sil

    A wonderful, loosely autobiographical debut from Hong Sang-soo’s former producer Kim Cho-hee, Lucky Chan-sil observes its titular protagonist’s listlessness with unwavering empathy, charm, and droll film industry humor. Extra support comes from none other than Minari Oscar-winner Youn Yuh-jung!

  • Cosmos

    Cosmos

    While not your typical anthology film, Cosmos does feature six stories from as many directors, woven together into an interconnecting whole. The most artful segment comes from an up-and-coming Denis Villeneuve, 25 years before he ventured into a less metaphorical cosmos with his adaptation of Dune.

    Séraphine

  • Fear X

    Fear X

    Nicolas Winding Refn’s American debut struggled to find its audience on release. Ripe for reappraisal, it lands somewhere between the nightmarish visions of David Lynch and the metaphysical mysteries of Memento. With an against-type lead in John Turturro, Fear X is rich with atmospheric foreboding.
