BLACKkKLANSMEN by Spike Lee: Very cool and funny Black Cinema by Spike Lee on a serious topic with a well-known saying from current politics at the end - for us already a must see in the cinema:
DOGMAN by Matteo Garrone: Wonderfully photographed by Nicolaj Bruel on Arri Alexa Mini and Cooke SF Anamorphics. Already highly praised in advance and, together with LAZZARO FELICE by Alice Rohrwacher, repeatedly associated with a "new Italian realism":
LAZZARO FELICE by Alice Rohrwacher: Stylish by cinematographer Hélène Louvart
