    TIFF18:

    Tibetan writer-director Pema Tseden’s fifth feature film, ”Jinpa” (2018), tells the story of a lorry driver on the windswept, deserted, frozen Tibetan plains, as he meets a mysterious stranger set to avenge his father’s death. Quiet, dreamlike.

    ★★★

    World premiere at the 43rd Toronto International Film Festival — TIFF18.

    This is the second feature film by Swedish director Carolina Hellsgård, working in Germany. The post-apocalyptic zombie setting benefits from some impressive production design and the existentialism embedded adds some layers to the story.

    THE WRITING. McDonagh's screenplay is a work of brilliance. Add the ACTING. Powerful, lovely, hilarious McDormand. And Rockwell giving it all: far-out, crazy, disgusting and, against all odds, charmingly loveable.

    With his 4th feature film, creative writer-director Taika Waititi melts hearts and puts smiles on people's faces, with some good help from lovely Julian Dennison and Sam Neill, all in an exquisite mix of adventure, comedy & drama.
