Blind Chance (Krzysztof Kieślowski)


Before he stunned the cinematic world with the epic series The Decalogue and the Three Colors trilogy, the great Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieślowski made his first work of metaphysical genius, Blind Chance, a compelling drama about the difficulty of reconciling political ideals with personal happiness. This unforgettable film follows Witek (the magnetic Bogusław Linda), a medical student with an uncertain future in Communist Poland; Kieślowski dramatizes Witek’s journey as a series of different possibilities, suggesting that chance rules our lives as much as choice does. First suppressed and then censored by the Polish government, Blind Chance is here presented in its complete original form. –

Heaven Knows What (Benny Safdie, Josh Safdie)


It’s hard not to fall in love with Arielle Holmes. Even when holding a close-up of a heroin daze (as seen on the poster) one gets the sense of the Safdie Brothers not prodding her and her real-life story for the sake of their own aesthetic interests, but rather a very complicated emotional need — one which the audience will understand within seconds. – Ethan V.

Love & Mercy (Bill Pohlad)


A worthwhile biopic on Beach Boys frontman Brian WilsonLove & Mercy follows both Paul Dano and John Cusack playing different iterations of the legendary musician. Directed by Bill Pohlad, the accomplished producer behind The Tree of Life, 12 Years a Slave, and Brokeback Mountain, we said of it in our review, “With strong performances and unique insight that above all feels emotionally and artistically honest, Love & Mercy is a bittersweet triumph with a lot of pain along the way.” – Jordan R.
