A Family Submerged (2018)

This Argentine drama is an unwieldy arthouse film that drove people out of my screening. The film has not much to say but takes an unnecessarily long time to say it. There are very good performances and a number of interesting elements here, but as a whole this film does not work.

Zama (2017)

I sincerely disliked Zama. It is an “artfilm” of the worst kind: long, incoherent, and beloved by a very special breed of film critic.

If you are a hardcore Greenaway fan, you might possibly enjoy Zama, everyone else is far better off avoiding this film.

El Pampero (2017)

A road movie without roads, El Pampero is a drama about a man trying to avoid facing his illness by escaping on his sailing boat. But things are definitely not going to plan in this very engaging slow-burn drama that plays with both thriller and noir elements.
