SPLIT
2016, Universal, 117 min, Dir: M. Night Shyamalan

Writer-director-producer M. Night Shyamalan returns with an original thriller that delves into the mysterious recesses of one man's fractured, gifted mind. Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (THE WITCH’s Anya Taylor-Joy), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him - as well as everyone around him - as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.

Writer-director M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his worldwide blockbusters to create this explosive, comic-book thriller.

BLACKKKLANSMAN
2018, Focus Features, 135 min, USA, Dir: Spike Lee

This incredible true story of an American hero offers an unflinching examination of race relations in 1970s America that is just as bracingly relevant in today’s tumultuous world. As the first African-American detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department, Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is viewed with open hostility by the department’s rank and file. Stallworth resolves to make a name for himself and a difference in his community through a dangerous mission: Infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. Posing as a racist extremist, Stallworth soon finds himself invited into its inner circle, even cultivating a relationship with Grand Wizard David Duke (Topher Grace). With the help of colleague Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) - who poses as Ron in face-to-face meetings with members of the hate group - Stallworth works to take down the organization, whose real aim is to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. The Grand Prix winner at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
