THE SHAPE OF WATER

An other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa is trapped in a life of isolation, but her life is changed forever when she discovers a secret classified experiment.

Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is a mute, isolated woman who works as a cleaning lady in a hidden, high-security government laboratory in 1962 Baltimore. Her life changes forever when she discovers the lab's classified secret - a mysterious, scaled creature from South America that lives in a water tank. 

As Elisa develops a unique bond with her new friend, she soon learns that its fate and very survival lies in the hands of a hostile government agent and a marine biologist.

MOM & DAD

Mommy and Daddy ain't alright, and they're definitely more than a little weird in this pitch-black horror comedy that imagines a 24-hour nightmare where parents worldwide succumb to a mysterious mass hysteria that turns them violently against their own children. It's a macabre and inspired conceit, and one mined for biting social satire by writer/director Brian Taylor on his first solo outing since his gonzo collaborations with Mark Neveldine (the Crank films, Gamer), and starring Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair like you've never seen them before...and thats saying something.

THE FINAL YEAR

During 2016, filmmaker Greg Barker gained access to key members of outgoing US President Barack Obama's administration - Secretary of State John Kerry, Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, confidant and speech writer Ben Rhodes, and others - for an unprecedented look at the shaping of US foreign policy. 

While TV shows from The West Wingto Madam Secretary have invented dramas from this milieu, never has a documentary captured the real players so much in the moment.
The globe-spanning journey involves stops on multiple continents. Rhodes, who's described as sharing a "mind meld" with Obama, joins the President on historic visits to Ho Chi Minh City, Hiroshima, and Havana. Power seeks to put ordinary people at the heart of foreign policy in Nigeria and Cameroon. Kerry negotiates at the UN for a Syrian ceasefire and bears witness to global warming in Greenland. Every move they make stirs reactions from media, Congress, and the public.
While history books will be better equipped to explore political complexities, The Final Yearexcels at showing us the humanity of these policy makers in times of breakthrough, setback, and tragedy.

This perspective would be remarkable in any year. But 2016 stands out since US foreign policy changed dramatically under a new administration. The contrast is clear in every minute of the film. As we gain distance from the Obama years, The Final Year will serve as a vital document.

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME

It's the summer of 1983 in northern Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a 17-year-old American-Italian boy, spends his days in his family's seventeenth century villa lazily transcribing music and flirting with his friend Marzia. One day Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming, 24-year-old American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio's father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of this sensual setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will change their lives forever.  Together, they share an unforgettable summer full of music, food, and romance that will forever change them.

The latest film by Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash) is adapted from the novel by André Aciman, with a screenplay by Guadagnino and James Ivory. The juxtapositions work amazingly well in this period drama which combines the stunning and effortless opulence that harkens to the lush worlds of a Merchant-Ivory production combine with Guadagnino's keen sense of sensuality and intimacy, all in a 1980's setting that is heightened by a stellar soundtrack featuring Sufjan Stevens. 

Luminous performances from Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg, and a break-out turn from Timothée Chalamet buoy Guadagnino's gorgeously realized coming-of-age drama. An instant classic, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME has the handprints of James Ivory all over it, echoing to classic Merchant Ivory productions like Maurice and Remains of the Day while possessing a remarkable freshness no doubt thanks to Guadagnino's who has with this film that bolstered his rightful reputation as one of the most inspiring filmmakers working today.

THE FILM
SHADOWMAN

In the 1980s, Richard Hambleton was the Shadowman, a specter in the night who painted hundreds of startling silhouettes on the walls of lower Manhattan and, along with Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, sparked the street art movement. After drug addiction and homelessness sent him spinning out of the art scene for 20 years, the Shadowman gets a second chance...but will he take it? SHADOWMAN plunges the viewer into the chaotic life of a forgotten artist, from early fame as a painter and denizen of the Lower East Side, through his struggles with heroin, to his surprising comeback as street art exploded to become one of the most popular and lucrative art movements in the world. Before Banksy, there was Hambleton.
