Myrna’s Most Anticipated

Der Samurai

Director: Till Kleinert  Stars: Michel Diercks, Pit Bukowski, Uwe Preuss, Ulrike Hanke-Hänsch, Kaja Blachnik, Christopher Guy Kane, Janin Halisch, Ulrike Bliefert, Michael Fritz Schumacher.

Word has it that director Till Kleinert has a visually stunning, art house directing style, and the plot sounds insane!

Director: Jimmy Goldblum, Adam Weber.
This documentary sounds like an act of preservation to what will most likely be a lost art. 
Director: Ira Sachs Cast: John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, Marisa Tomei, Cheyenne Jackson, Manny Perez, Darren Burrows

Lithgow and Molina together!

Director: Kelly Reichardt Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Peter Sarsgaard

I’m excited about anything coming out of the Reichardt camp. 

David’s Most Anticipated

Director: Alonso Ruizpalacios Cast: Tenoch Huerta, Ilse Salas, Leonardo Ortizgris, Sebastian Aguirre. 
Director Alonso Ruizpalacios first feature film is part road picture, part historical inquiry, and part quest film (McGuffin included). It’s well worth your time.

Dior and I

Director: Frédéric Tcheng Cast: Raf Simons, Anna Wintour, Sidney Toledano, Pieter Mulier.

It’s a fashion film and in New York City, fashion kids will stand in line twelve hours in advance to get their tickets. So, watch out kids, I’m stepping to the front of the line for this one to see Raf Simons and Anna Wintour.

The One I Love

Directed: Charlie McDowell. Cast: Duplass, Elisabeth Moss, Ted Danson.

Elizabeth Moss and Mark Duplass escape to a country retreat to save their marriage only to discover their better selves. Is it a rom-com, an adorable romp, or a delightful sci-fi comedy? I just don’t know, but I’m in. 

Marco’s Most Anticipated

Starred Up

Director: David Mackenzie, Cast: Jack O’Connell, Ben Mendelsohn, Rupert Friend.

Starred Up is a brutally violent prison movie that redefines the word raw. It’s an absolutely thrilling, bloody, limb-snapping adventure into British prison life.


Director: Johanna Hamilton.

1971 retells the intoxicating story of eight politically active American citizens who stole revealing FBI documents and leaked them to the press. The film reveals a heist that exposed first amendment violations by the FBI—a real nail biter.

Manos Sucias

Director: Josef Wladyka Cast: Cristian Advincula, Jarlin Martinez, Manuel David Riascos, Hadder Blandon.

Manos Sucias is an unembellished story of two young Colombian men on a deadly mission to deliver a torpedo filled with cocaine. It’s a clever and powerful glimpse into a petrifying world.

Venus in Fur

Director: Roman Polanski, Cast: Emmanuelle Seigner, Mathieu Amalric. 

Polanski, the master, has returned once again with a hilarious film based on David Ives’ 2010 play of the same title and the 19th century Austrian novella Legacy of Cain’s most popular volume, Venus in Fur. Get ready to laugh out loud!

Art and Craft

Director: Sam Cullman, Jennifer Grausman, co-directed by Mark Becker.

Art and Craft is a documentary that explores the complex world of skilled art forger Mark Landis. He spends his days meticulously copying varied works of art to then create imagined personas when donating the counterfeit pieces to museums throughout the United States. Art and Craft is an amusing, yet moving view into the life of an unbalanced man.
