LOVE, ANTOSHA
2019, Giant Pictures, 93 min, USA, Dir: Garret Price

From a prolific career in film and television, Anton Yelchin left an indelible legacy as an actor. Through his journals and other writings, his photography, the original music he wrote and interviews with his family, friends, and colleagues, this film looks not just at Anton’s impressive career, but at a broader portrait of the man. Born in the former Soviet Union to a family of artists, Anton and his parents came to the U.S. when he was six months old. He started acting at nine. He had a genuine curiosity and love for people, for art and for family- as well as a willingness to explore, and be open with, the darker parts of himself. LOVE, ANTOSHA explores his successes and his struggles, and lets viewers get to know this extraordinary person the world was cheated from seeing grow old.


CLIMAX
2018, A24, 95 min, France, Dir: Gaspar Noé

The setting is France in 1996; Daft Punk has just redefined music and the dance community has responded with a visceral new language as violent as it is beautiful. As a group of dancers unwinds at a remote lodge, an acid-spiked punch turns hedonism into horror, and the gathering quickly descends into Lord of the Flies territory. Sofia Boutella (THE KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE) stars as Selva, the troupe's manager, with some of France’s hottest dancers (including Claude Gajan Maull, Vince Galliot Cumant and Thea Carla Schott) surrounding her. Filled with bravura sequences, the relentlessly immersive onslaught that is CLIMAX reaffirms Gaspar Noé’s status as one of contemporary film’s greatest provocateurs.
