7. THE LURE
The Lure is a 2017 Polish horror musical film directed by Agnieszka Smoczyńska. It tells of two mermaids who emerge from the waters and perform in a nightclub. One falls in love with a man, and gives up her tail, but loses her voice in the process. The story is a reworking of The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen, with inspiration from Smoczyńska’s experiences.
Sometime in the 1980s, two mermaids, Golden and Silver, encounter a rock band, Figs n’ Dates, relaxing and playing music on a beach in Poland. They accompany the band back to the nightclub where they regularly perform and begin playing gigs there, performing as strippers and backup singers. The mermaids soon become their own act, The Lure, with the band backing them. Golden murders a bar patron after a show one night and continues to thirst for blood; Silver falls in love with the bassist Mietek, but Mietek only sees her as a fish and not a woman
What makes a movie great? Why do some stand the test of time while others slowly lose their value? For some films, it’s the emotion the story invokes. Sometimes an actor’s performance is so unforgettable, it captures our attention. Occasionally a film is so visually stunning, it can’t be forgotten
6. CITY OF GHOST
City of Ghosts is a 2017 American documentary film about the Syrian media activist group Raqqa.
Since 2014, ISIS has claimed the Syrian city of Raqqa as the capital of its so-called Caliphate—and, at the same time, been opposed by a band of local “citizen journalists” whose mission is to expose the Islamic State’s horrific crimes. That group, known as “Raqqa Is Being Silently Slaughtered” (RBSS), is the focus of director Matthew Heineman’s sterling new documentary, which embeds itself with three RBSS members as they struggle to continue their work from Germany and Turkey, where they’ve been forced to flee thanks to death threats from ISIS.
5. THE BLACK COAT’S DAUGHTER
The Blackcoat’s Daughter known in the UK by its original title February is a 2015 American-Canadian supernatural psychological horror film written and directed by Oz Perkins.
Director Osgood Perkins is the son of Norman Bates himself (actor Anthony Perkins), but he proves to be a horror maestro in his own right with The Blackcoat’s Daughter, a beguiling descent into dark, demonic places that’s all the more chilling for refusing to chart a simple straight-and-narrow course.
In upstate New York, Kat (Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka) is left by her parents to spend winter break at her boarding school alongside more popular Rose (Lucy Boynton); meanwhile, Joan (Emma Roberts) endeavors to hitchhike her way to the school, eventually nabbing a ride with a contentious couple (James Remark and Lauren Holly). What these three girls have to do with each other is a mystery to be unraveled.
Okja is a 2017 action-adventure film directed by Bong Joon-ho and co-written by Bong and Jon Ronson. Bong Joon Ho’s Okja is many things at once: a rollicking kid’s fable about the bond between a young South Korean girl (Byun Hee-bong) and her genetically enhanced super-pig (named Okja); a satiric critique of the corporate food industry; a wacko comedy about transcending cultural boundaries; and a fantastical adventure full of kidnappings and chases, buoyed by over-the-top performances from Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal, and culminating with a Times Square spectacular and a Holocaust-esque trip to the slaughterhouse. Most of all, however, it’s the year’s most exhilaratingly idiosyncratic work, indebted to the spirit of both Steven Spielberg and Hayao Miyazaki, and energized by the distinctive signature of its director.
Dunkirk is a 2017 war film written, directed, and co-produced by Christopher Nolan that depicts World War II’s Dunkirk evacuation. Dunkirk portrays the evacuation from three perspectives: land, sea, and air. It has little dialogue, since Nolan sought to create suspense from cinematography and music. Filming began in May 2016 in Dunkirk and ended that September in Los Angeles, when post-production began.
Christopher Nolan dispenses with the exposition in favor of immersive aesthetics with Dunkirk, a dramatic account of the WWII evacuation of Dunkirk, France’s beaches in 1941.
Fractured between three interwoven time frames and perspectives (land, sea and air), and shot almost entirely in 70mm IMAX—which stands as the ideal format in which to see this overwhelmingly experiential work—Nolan’s wartime tale cares little for character detail or contextual background. Instead, it thrusts viewers into the chaos engulfing a variety of infantrymen (including Fionn Whitehead and Harry Styles), commanders (primarily, Kenneth Branagh), fighter pilots (led by Tom Hardy), and civilian boatman (notably, Mark Rylance), all of whose sacrifice, selfishness, cowardice, and heroism is thrown into sharp relief by Nolan’s grand set pieces.
2. AMERICAN MADE
American Made is a 2017 American biographical crime film directed by Doug Liman, written by Gary Spinelli and starring Tom Cruise, Domhnall Gleeson, Sarah Wright, Alejandro Edda, Mauricio Mejía, Caleb Landry Jones and Jesse Plemons. The plot focuses on Barry Seal, a former TWA pilot who flew missions for the CIA and became a drug smuggler for the Medellín Cartel in the 1980s. In order to avoid jail time, Seal became an informant for the DEA.
The stories that emerge from the sets of Doug Liman’s productions are often as entertaining as the films themselves. During filming of The Bourne Identity, Liman reportedly paid the crew to stay late so they could all play paintball in the French countryside. While making Edge Of Tomorrow, Liman spent so long working out how to shoot a beach scene that the scheduled two-week shoot stretched on for two months.
Logan is a 2017 American superhero film, produced by Marvel Entertainment, TSG Entertainment and The Donners’ Company, and distributed by 20th Century Fox. It is the tenth installment in the X-Men film series, as well as the third and final Wolverine solo film following X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) and The Wolverine (2013). The film, which takes inspiration from the Old Man Logan comic-book series by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, follows an aged Wolverine and an extremely ill Professor X defending the former’s biological Mexican daughter Laura from the villainous Reavers and Alkali-Transigen led by Donald Pierce and Zander Rice, respectively.
It’s the final hurrah for Hugh Jackman in the role of Wolverine, as he retires his character in Logan. An adaptation of the Old Man Logan comic book story, the film sees him reunited with Patrick Stewart as Professor X. The Wolverine director James Mangold returned for this one, too.
