(some spoilers below)
American Honey. Can there be romance, happiness, on a rundown bus and in dirty motels, selling mags?
King Jack. He just fell off his bike. That outmoded.
Eye in the Sky. You and me are not in that room.
Morris From America. Everyone should be a stranger some time somewhere.
The Shallows. Visually stunning.
Elle. Everything is unusual here: the approach to rape, to virtue and vice, to lesbianism, to work relations, even to religion and fatherhood.
Hell or High Water. Men in all ways authentic, for better and for worse. Superb acting and storytelling.
Nocturnal Animals. Failure to comply with the ancestral bases of both femininity and masculinity will lead to this mutual revenge.
Florence Foster Jenkins. Frears could have followed the usual cynical path but deliberately chooses to tell the story the benevolent way, what makes the film unique, and touching, funny and pathetic.
The Edge of Seventeen. Maybe the story is not about her, after all. Great performance again from Hailee Steinfeld (Mattie Ross in the extraordinary True Grit), and a good one from Blake Jenner (Everybody Wants Some, excellent film by the way).
