TEN FILMS TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN 2022 FOR THE FILM BUFF
Streaming really has democratized access to once rare feature films
We Begin with the aforementioned Park Chan-Wook’s
Decision To Leave
Director: Park Chan-Wook
Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths
Director: Alejandro González Iñárritu
From the winner of back-to-back Best Directing Oscars (Birdman and The Revenant) and multiple other Producing and Writing Awards AGI (Im just gonna call him AGI coz cmon now) is back with a film that’s set in his homeland of Mexico. I expect this to be a somewhat contemplative film with the Director wrestling with the stature he has attained and how he got there.
Killers of the Flower Moon
Director: Martin Scorsese
Director: Yorgos Lanthimos
“Victoria McCandless is a free-spirited, highly sensual woman who drowns herself to escape her abusive husband. In the aftermath, she is brought back to life by an eccentric scientist named Godwin Baxter. He replaces her brain with the brain of her unborn child and changes Victoria’s name to Belle Baxter. Godwin finds his scientific dreams fulfilled through Belle, but must deal with the complications of her jealous husband learning about her existence.”
What’s not to love?
Three Thousand Years of Longing
Director: George Miller
Director: Hirokazu Koreeda
Crimes of the Future
Director: David Cronenberg
Director: Darren Aronofsky
Cha Cha Real Smooth
Director: Cooper Raif
Triangle of Sadness
Director: Ruben Östlund
A satirical look at the lifestyle of the ultra rich in an attempt to portray just how ridiculous late stage capitalism is by placing the setting on a Yacht with vapid self centred patrons people and a Marxist Sea Captain yelling at them is cause enough for me to place this as my most anticipated film on this list and yet theres more! Woody Harrelson plays the Captain in what critics are calling one of his best roles in recent memory and the film just recently won the Palme D’or at Cannes.
There are a whole lot more to add to the list but we shall leave it at ten for now. What films are you looking forward to seeing in 2022?
