ANOTHER ROUND

Thomas Vinterberg crafts a fun if surprisingly anodyne movie that celebrates moderation.

‘Nomadland’ (Chloe Zhao, 2020), Searchlight Pictures, USA, DCP, colour, sound, 108 mins, Fern (Frances McDormand)

NOMADLAND

Chloe Zhao’s third feature entwines a lyrical exploration of the American West with the drilling effects of capitalism and old age.

Undine (Christian Petzold, 2020), IFC Films, Germany, DCP, colour, sound, 91 minutes, Christoph (Franz Rogowski), Undine (Paula Beer)

UNDINE

Christian Petzold’s newest is a beguiling fairytale, replete with the director’s multifaceted interests.

“So I like to try to go back and develop pure visual storytelling. Because to me, it’s one of the most exciting aspects of making movies and almost a lost art at this point.”

Brian De Palma
