The story, set in an alternative 1997, centers on a runaway teenager and her yellow toy robot as they travel through a strange USA, where the ruins of gigantic battle drones litter the countryside heaped together with the discarded trash of a high tech consumerist society in decline. As their car approaches the edge of the continent, the world outside the window seems to be unraveling ever faster as if somewhere beyond the horizon, the hollow core of civilization has finally caved in.

“The Beach Bum” is Korine’s first feature since 2012’s “Spring Breakers” became his biggest directorial hit to date. The comedy stars McConaughey as the titular bum, a rebellious stoner named Moondog who lives life by his own rules. Efron’s Flicker is one of the characters Moondog meets on his journey. Neon picked up distribution rights to “The Beach Bum” in May 2017.
Efron has mostly starred in studio comedies such as “Baywatch,” “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates,” and the “Neighbors” franchise as of late, making “The Beach Bum
As fun as that sounds, the limited series deserves slightly more respect than such frivolity implies. It’s an earnestly made, well-told, true story about a group of 17th century Catholics who rebelled against a Protestant king that saw their faith as a threat and wanted them eliminated. Dragons do not belong here, nor should one wish for them to fly in and set the world ablaze.
But while “Gunpowder” tells its story clearly and respectably — previously unaware British viewers will see Guy Fawkes Day differently — its
There is perhaps a spoonful of sugar too many in this bittersweet Chinese drama from blockbusting director Feng Xiaogang. It’s an an ambitious, sprawling, novelistic beast of a movie that opens amid the tantrums and broken hearts of young dancers in a cultural division of the army in the mid 70s. Xiaoping (Miao Miao) is the troupe’s new girl, determined to make fresh start after a difficult childhood. But her colleagues, sensing she is vulnerable, mercilessly mock Xiaoping for crimes against sophistication (she pads her bra out with sponges). Xiaoping’s sole defender is saintly Liu Feng (Huang Xuan), a young man possessed with such superhuman goodness that he chivalrously lances the puss from one dancer’s blisters. Years pass, and the movie takes in political upheaval,

The other Qumra “Masters” are Thai auteur Apichatpong Weerasethakul, the 2010 Cannes Palme d’Or winner for “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives,” and Italy’s Gianfranco Rosi, who won a Venice Golden Lion and a Berlin Golden Bear for two separate documentaries – the first time either festival had awarded its top prize to a documentary. Rosi scored the Lion in 2013 for “Sacro Gra” and the Bear in 2016 for “Fire at Sea.”
Qumra 2018, which runs March 9-14 in the Qatari capital of Doha, blends together a creative workshop, co-production market, and festival elements. The event was established four years ago by the Doha Film Institute (Dfi) to help foster first and second works, mostly by Arab
Eleven Panorama films were unveiled Friday, with Latin America making a strong showing. The four movies from the region include two apiece from Argentina and Brazil: Sebastián Schjaer’s “La Omision” (“The Omission”) and Santiago Loza’s “Malambo, el Hombre Bueno” (“Malambo, the Good Man”) from Argentina, and “Bixa Travesty” (“Tranny Fag”), about transgender female performers, and documentary “Ex-Paje” (“Ex-Shaman”) from Brazil.
“La Omision,” about a young mother and transient worker, along with Austrian film “L’Animale,” about a teenage girl and her motocross clique, are films that the organizers said address “resistance to machismo.”
Other Panorama titles this year include Swedish filmmaker Goran Hugo
In order to tell the story of sean-nós singer Joe Heaney, Pat Collins blends a documentarian’s attachment to authenticity with a poet’s flair for innovation and unconventional storytelling. A biopic not quite like any other, this measured, oblique but luminous film unfolds in a series of long held shots and scratchy newsreel clips to show how Heaney (played by Michael O’Chonfhlaola, Macdara Ó Fátharta and Colm Seoighe, as well as the addition of archive material) emerged from rural Galway in the mid-20th century and ended up performing at the legendary Newport folk festival with the Clancy Brothers in the late 60s. Along the way he performed in pubs, helped build stone walls and worked as a doorman in New York City. However,
