Ingrid Goes West
25 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A very smart and satirical take on the stalker movie, which resists easy laughs for harder truths on current millennia social media obsession.

Wind River
Wind River (2017)
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Writer turned director, Taylor Sheridan makes excellent use of open spaces and haunting quiet Wind River, a Native American reservation high in the bone-white Wyoming wilderness - a place of "snow and silence" as as Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner), a local game tracker, evocatively puts it.
One day Lambert discovers a dead teenage body, far from the nearest man-made structure, while he's hunting a mountain lion that's been worrying the local livestock. Teaming-up with a rookie FBI agent Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen) is scrambled from Las Vegas to assume control of the homicide case. A chilly noir brings out the best of Jeremy Renner. Less about mystery, Wind River is a film about this harsh landscape towards all who trudge across it, even Native Americans themselves are force corralled here.

Frantz
Frantz (2017)
4 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

An interwar romance set in 1919 between Anna (Paula Beer), a young German woman who lost his fiance died in the war and a mysterious frenchman Adrien Rivoire (Pierre Niney) who claim to know Anna's late love, Frantz before the great war. François Ozon's colourful use of flashbacks are infused with inviting warmth, which contrasts with the black and white of a reality in which everyone mourns at least one loved one. There's a pleasing symmetry to this story - lie is matched by lie, journey by journey - and Beer's silky self-possession is utterly beguiling.
