Parasite

Jobless, penniless, and, above all, hopeless, the unmotivated patriarch, Ki-taek, and his equally unambitious family--his supportive wife, Chung-sook; his cynical twentysomething daughter, Ki-jung, and his college-age son, Ki-woo--occupy themselves by working for peanuts in their squalid basement-level apartment. Then, by sheer luck, a lucrative business proposition will pave the way for an ingeniously insidious scheme, as Ki-woo summons up the courage to pose as an English tutor for the teenage daughter of the affluent Park family. Now, the stage seems set for an unceasing winner-take-all class war. How does one get rid of a parasite?

Kubrick by Kubrick

A huge amount has been written about Stanley Kubrick’s filmography and numerous documentaries have covered his works, yet this titan of world cinema gave few interviews during his career. Nevertheless, Kubrick afforded unique access on various occasions to distinguished French critic Michel Ciment, resulting in hours of audio recordings of interviews which form the basis ofMonro’s original portrait of the creator of such films as 2001: A SpaceOdyssey, Barry Lyndon and A Clockwork Orange.

Bad Tales

The suburbs of Rome are not what they seem. Neat little fences separate carefully manicured lawns, while filtering through the summer idyll are human frustrations of the blackest dye. Impossible to ignore and self-assured in its direction, the picture uses hyperbole to portray neurotic fathers, indifferent mothers, and childhoods that are far from innocent. This scathing vision of depraved humanity won Berlin’s Silver Bear for Best Screenplay.

Honey Boy

Twelve-year-old Otis is a child actor assisted by his father James, once a professional clown and an alcoholic on the wrong side of the law. This rousing, painfully candid and bitterly humorous depiction of a complex father-son relationship forms the core of this lauded independent hit of last autumn. The decidedly autobiographical screenplay was written by controversial actor ShiaLaBeouf, who also lent his undeniable acting talent to the character of James, a reflection of his own real-life father.
