BACURAU
Apr 1 all-day

Starring Sonia Braga (Kiss of the Spider Woman, a movie I strongly recommend), Udo Kier (Melancholia, another strong film but not for the weak of heart!), it won the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes last year, and tells a tale of a small community that bands together to fight a formidable enemy bent on destroying them. Formally thrilling and narratively daring, Bacurau draws on modern Brazilian sociopolitical concerns to deliver a hard-hitting, genre-blurring drama. Taking place a few years from now, Bacurau, a small village in the Brazilian sertão, mourns the loss of its matriarch, Carmelita, who lived to be 94. Days later, its inhabitants (among them Sônia Braga) notice their village has literally vanished from most maps and a UFO-shaped drone starts flying overhead. There are forces that want to expel them from their homes, and soon a fierce confrontation takes place when the townspeople turn the tables on the villainous outsiders, banding together by any means necessary to protect and maintain their remote community. Imagine if Quentin Tarantino had directed High Plains Drifter and you’ll get the idea. Please note, the final section of the film gets bloody as bullets fly!

CORPUS CHRISTI
Apr 1 all-day

You can access the film here.

CORPUS CHRISTI was one of the other four completely-overlooked films nominated for a Best Foreign Language Oscar last year, thanks to Parasite.  Anchored by a “dynamically physical, wild-eyed performance” (The Hollywood Reporter) from newcomer Bartosz Bielenia, CORPUS CHRISTI is an incisive, darkly humorous, and engrossing exploration of faith, second chances, and the possibility of atonement.  After spending years in a Warsaw prison for a violent crime, 20-year-old Daniel (Beilenia)–who, over the course of his incarceration has found Christ and aspires to join the clergy–is released and sent to a remote village to work as a manual laborer.  When Daniel arrives in town, one quick lie allows him to be mistaken for the town’s new priest, and he sets about leading his newfound flock.  Though he has no training, his passion and charisma inspire the community.  At the same time, his unconventional sermons and unpriestly behavior raise suspicions among some of the townsfolk – even more so as he edges towards a dark secret that the community hasn’t revealed in the confessional booth.
