THE REVENANT

DIRECTOR: D. Kerry Prior - UNITED STATES

“When Joey’s best friend Bart is killed in action in Iraq, Joey is unsettled at the funeral, but not nearly as much as when Bart shows up the next night undead on his doorstep. Not knowing how he has come back to life, the two friends discover that Bart is a ‘Revenant,’ somewhere between a zombie and a vampire, and needs blood to survive. To keep him ‘alive,’ they start preying on the dregs of society and inadvertently start cleaning up the neighborhood, becoming modern vigilantes. This is all well and good until the criminals and drug dealers they’ve killed...

THE ROBBER

DIRECTOR: Benjamin Heisenberg - AUSTRIA

“Adapted from a novel that was in turn based on the real-life case of a champion marathoner who led a double life holding up banks in 1980s Austria, Benjamin Heisenberg’s sleek and intelligent genre exercise is at once an action thriller, a love story, a character study, and an existential parable. Its protagonist, Johann (Andreas Lust, Revanche), is defined almost exclusively by his twin obsessions. He runs and he robs, therefore he is. Alternating between endorphin-rush kineticism and stretches of quiet tension, The Robber is as precise and single-minded as its hero. At the film’s center is a brilliantly calibrated...

RUBBER

DIRECTOR: Quentin Dupieux - FRANCE

“In the California desert, the adventures of a telepathic killer tire, mysteriously attracted by a very pretty girl, as witnessed by incredulous onlookers. Why? No reason. ‘No reason’ will never make more sense than after you have survived a screening of Rubber. Straddling art film and horror, it has the most outrageous premise of any film this year. (Or ever?) An audience gathers in the desert to watch a story unfold: a tire comes to life, rolls along, discovers it has the ability to make people’s heads explode, and so on. But it’s not just a film about a telekinetic...

RUSSIAN LESSONS

DIRECTOR: Andrei Nekrasov, Olga Konskaya - NORWAY

Nekrasov and Konskaya, familiar with Russia’s ease in spreading misinformation, suspected that the official version of the 2008 war between Russia and Georgia—which painted Georgia as the aggressor—was far from true. With Russian Lessons, they set out to prove it. Examining the damage and interviewing witnesses, the truth soon surfaces—not only the truth about which country was to blame, but about how the Russians were so successful in spinning their version in the press and in the court of world opinion. A damning indictment of the Putin government and the laxity of Western media, this fascinating film is a cautionary...
