    You Won't Be Alone

    ★★★★★

    You Won’t Be Alone- is an astonishing folk horror cloaked in an emotional shawl. Occurring in the1800s, the film's Balkan setting featuring mutating bloodsuckers recalls the 1971 Yugoslavian vampire film “Leptirica”. The cinematography, with a raw-cinematic eye, recalls Terrence Malick’s visual approach. This Macedonian tale morphs the witch and vampiric myth much like its shape shifting characters.

    A Vanishing Fog is another eco-activist film from Colombia that is addressing climate change while rooted in magical realism.

    Filming took place in the topographical phenomenon of Páramo of Sumapaz – a delicate ecosystem formed by various Alpine tundra essential for Bogotá’s water source.

Why movies like “Blade Runner” are successfully brilliant, foregoing the apocalypse and dropping us right into the dystopian future. Unfortunately, “Exposure 36” scraps the entertaining aspect of epic world-ending movies and takes a dramatic approach. After a cool synth scored opening through a tunnel, this tale, set during the last…

    Exterminate All the Brutes

    ★★★★★

    Blending historical accounts, archival footage, and re-enactments, Raoul Peck crafts a masterful docuseries. Peck was born in Haiti, a revolutionary country that has tragically become a victim of US hegemonic rule

    Having made Lumumba, The Young Karl Marx, and I am not your Negro, Peck is well versed in leftist history and figures. Exterminate All the Brutes seamlessly jumps through the colonial past with both an academic and personal approach.

    When I wasn’t being moved by the remarkable production, I kept thinking about how this should be shown in history classes all across the United States.
