The Best Films We Saw At #LFF2017



Looking back at 2017’s BFI London Film Festival and after careful deliberation, we finish our review with the list of the best films we saw at this year’s event. We began our coverage recommending 15 films we had already seen at Cannes and other festivals. A list that perfectly complements this one and whose, at least, first 8 titles (among them, The Florida Project, You Were Never Really Here, The Killing Of A Sacred Deer, Summer 1993, etc.) deserve to be included in any best-of the festival recap. We also took a look at a selection of the lesser-known titles from the different strands in former posts. But now its the turn for the films that we actually liked the most during the festival. Altogether, they shape up a promising look at some of the best work that (hopefully) will come to our art-house cinemas during the next twelve months. Read the rest of this entry »

#LFF2017 Interview With Juliana Rojas and Marco Dutra (Good Manners)


Brazilian directors Juliana Rojas and Marco Dutra have crafted one of the most surprising films of the year with ‘Good Manners’. After winning an award at Locarno for its unique combination of social realism with multiple genres, ‘Good Manners’ was also selected for the London Film Festival’s official competition. Rojas and Dutra came to present their film and we had the chance to talk with them about, among other things, their collaboration; their unique approach to genre; the social aspect of their work; their classic influences and a particularly distinctive use of colour. Check the interview in full here: Read the rest of this entry »
