• What we didn't know about... Yorgos Lanthimos

    31 January 2019

    Some say that this Greek director is the new Bergman - because of his generous slow footage; that he is the new Lars von Trier - because of the violence in front of his lens; or that it is the new Michael Haneke - because of the silent shock you live with when you exit the cinema. In fact, Lanthimos is great because he's mostly like himself. Because of this are his recent ten Oscar nominations, including best director. His previous films - The Lobster, The Killing of a Secret Deer, Dog Tooth - pull us  in the subconscious just as strongly as his last one, The Favourite. Right before its' premiere in Sofia, we lay out for you a couple of things about Yorgos.

  • Speak the Truth

    8 February 2018

    Awards in laurel twigs, Oscar nominations in numbers, top actors in closeup and in CAPITAL LETTERS.

  • Crossing the border

    27 July 2017

    text Natalia Ivanova

    Do you imagine walking barefoot on the rough sand of the Sonora Desert in Mexico to start a new life in the States? It is unimaginable for us before we agree to go this way alone - into a dark hut in Fondazione Prada on the outskirts of Milan, where Alejandro G. Iñárritu directs our transformation into illegal immigrants. Virtually and just for seven minutes, in which you actually fall on your knees. This is Carne y Arena.

    1 June 2017

    text Emanuela Ivanova

    Once upon a time there were trailers too - at the end of a movie screening with the simple job to remind moviegoers to come back to the theatres the next week. Today trailers attack viewers months before the premiere of their TV shows or movies and are fighting battles against each other that can win the big war for ratings and box office domination.
