Bacurau
Brazil 2019 131 min.

Strange things are afoot in Bacurau: The remote Brazilian village has suddenly begun disappearing from satellite maps just as it’s coming under siege from a mysterious group of foreigners in this Cannes Jury Prize–winning thriller that combines surrealism with social commentary.

Free Fall
Hungary 2014 80 min.

A bitter woman steps off the roof of her bleak apartment house and remarkably survives the fall; she reenters the building to find the elevator inevitably broken. Ascending the stairs, she observes bizarre scenes unfolding within her neighbors’ apartments in a series of darkly comic vignettes.

The Golden Glove
Germany 2019 115 min.

Consider this your trigger warning. Depicting 1970s Hamburg as a lurid, squalid pit of iniquity, director Fatih Akin (Head On, DFF27; In the Fade, DFF40) brings the crimes of real-life, low-life German serial killer Fritz Honka to the big screen in unrelentingly grisly detail.

Hukkle
Hungary 2002 78 min.

Hungarian original György Pálfi burst onto the international film scene with this 2002 debut that Roger Ebert called an “ominous pastoral”: Capturing a day in the life of a rural village, it blurs the line between gorgeous and grotesque, comical and creepy as only Pálfi can blur it.

Jesus Shows You the Way to the Highway
Spain 2019 83 min.

Spanish director Miguel Llansó proves that a pastiche of retro B-movie genres can, in the right hands, result in arthouse transcendence. This gonzo sci-fi spy flick has it all: romance, danger, political intrigue, scientific experiments, time travel, kung fu, holograms, and delicious pizza.

Night God
Kazakhstan 2018 110 min.

For sheer atmosphere, there’s no topping the stylized hellscape in which Kazakh writer/director Adilkhan Yerzhanov’s enigmatic yet enthralling vision of the apocalypse takes place. It’s grounded in mythology—but its parallels to the realities we currently face couldn’t be more clear.

The Twentieth Century
Canada 2019 90 min.

Monty Python meets The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari in the art direction of this off-the-wall parody of a biopic about Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King, who more than lives up to the Queen’s proclamation: “Canadians, in happy days as in sad, disappointed shall you be.”

VHYes
USA 2019 73 min.

This comedic homage to kids who documented their childhoods with camcorders charms with anthology-style snippets of young Ralph’s family life, news bytes, infomercials, and forbidden Skinemax movies. It’s a pitch-perfect pastiche of ’80-era VHS tapes that have been repeatedly recorded over.
