Venice Buzz

Faltam poucas horas para o anúncio dos principais galardoados da 68ª edição do Festival de Veneza.

Independentemente do que o júri presidido pelo realizador Darren Aronofski deliberar, aqui ficam dez dos filmes mais bem recebidos pela crítica durante o certame.

Títulos a ter em atenção, e não só para os prémios...

. TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY (Alemanha/EUA), de Tomas Alfredson

«Right here, right now, it's the film to beat at this year's festival.»
Xan Brooks, Guardian.

. THE IDES OF MARCH (EUA), de George Clooney

«A political thriller exploring themes of loyalty, ambition and the gap between public ideals and private fallibility, it engages the brain within the context of a solid entertainment.»
David Gritten, Telegraph.

. A DANGEROUS METHOD (Alemanha/Canadá), de David Cronenberg

«Precise, lucid and thrillingly disciplined, this story of boundary-testing in the early days of psychoanalysis is brought to vivid life by the outstanding lead performances of Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender.»
Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter.

. TAO JIE (A SIMPLE LIFE) (China/Hong Kong), de Ann Hui

«Susan Chan and Roger Lee's script is a bittersweet, unmistakably heartfelt look at ties between people who aren't blood relations but who have in effect a mother/son bond.»
Neil Young, Hollywood Reporter.

. ALPS (Grécia), de Giorgos Lanthimos

«It'd be rash to call it a better film than DOGTOOTH, but it is, in the relative scheme of these things, a bigger one, and exciting evidence of restless formal development on the part of its director.»
Guy Lodge, In Contention.

. SHAME (Reino Unido), de Steve McQueen

«[...] a formidable, and formidably sober, provocation.»
Jonathan Romney, Sight & Sound.

. L'ULTIMO TERRESTRE (Itália), de Gian Alfonso Pacinotti

«Loosely inspired by a collection of comics from colleague Giacomo Monti, pic cleverly uses its sci-fi elements to explore people's fear of diversity and the unknown.»
Boyd Van Hoeij, Variety.

. FAUST (Rússia), de Alexander Sokurov

«[...] and since we are yet before hell, the path to get there is, remarkably, a vibrantly soulful, terrible and funny feast.»
Daniel Kasman, MUBI.com.

. WUTHERING HEIGHTS (Reino Unido), de Andrea Arnold

«Full credit to director Andrea Arnold for taking such a bold and distinctive approach to Emily Brontë's account of sweeping passion on the Yorkshire moors.»
Xan Brooks, Guardian.

. CARNAGE (Alemanha/Espanha/França/Polónia), de Roman Polanski

«Snappy, nasty, deftly acted and perhaps the fastest paced film ever directed by a 78-year-old, [CARNAGE] fully delivers the laughs and savagery of the stage piece while entirely convincing as having been shot in New York, even though it was filmed in Paris for well-known reasons.»
Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter.
