    ★★★

    You were never really here, Joker, don’t you?
    Happy face, angriness and sadness behind the mask. The mask of all us.

    Custody

    ★★★★

    Riveting directing by debuting Xavier Legrand and stellar acting by both actors playing parents (Léa Drucker and Denis Ménochet), and most importantly by the young actor Thomas Gloria. It's been a while since a decent movie by brothers Dardennes stuck in my mind, here you'll their get style and even more. Real and touching in every scene until the final credits.
    Precise use of close ups translating the real emotional power of the characters and accurately composed scenes provide a great experience of social drama on screen.

    ★★★★★

    An easy call as the masterpiece of contemporary Latin American cinema: both capturing cultural and social movements in 70s Mexico and telling a deeply personal story of filmmaker's childhood environment.
    More than 2 hours of breathtaking cinematography with some of the best edited scenes in a long time.
    Buy it or not, but it will be tough to beat it as the best picture of the year as it will pop up in most of lists across the media!
