Tilda Swinton! This film is a wonderful reimagining of the french graphic novels. Before or after watching the film, get some fish and read all three volumes. Also, is there anyone who is not heart breakingly attracted to Tilda Swinton? If you are indifferent, please watch Only Lovers Left Alive and then try to tell me you don’t want her to turn you. Tilda, if you are reading this, I pledge my devotion.
This classic film is partly responsible for breaking one of our founding member’s hips.
Already a classic. This film is more relevant than ever. Required viewing.
Set five minutes in the future and available here.
The books are great. The final book, Death’s End, is currently being translated into English. High hopes for the film.
This is the first time I have not hated Colin Farrell in a film. It’s great. Can’t say much, but at one point a character explains that they are only allowed to dance alone so they only listen to electronic music. Recommended! Available here.
Please excuse the non-dystopian selections.
The production quality of some scenes was two steps above the BBC’s Narnia serial (remember when things took a nosedive in the Voyage of the Dawn Treader?), but it never took me out of the narrative. The only thing that almost did was homeboy’s hat. SPOILER: He loses it toward the end. I think this and Outer Space on Yahoo! were two of my favorite surprises from 2015. Watch the first season here.
Always knew there was something weird about St. Louis.
9 out of 10 on the Realness scale. Watch the film here.
