Sam Was Here

Sam, a door-to-door salesman, travels through the desert in search of clients, yet the area seems deserted. And his wife won't answer his phone calls. It's as if everyone was avoiding him. His only contact with the outside world is a local radio station. The host, a strange man by the name of eddy, takes calls regarding a child killer at large, and pushes listeners to hunt the man to death. That's when Sam realizes everyone thinks he's the killer..

Newsbits:

  • Sure, will watch: Netflix is producing a zombie show set in medieval Korea: „the show comes from director Kim Seong-hun, and it will be about a prince going on a quest to 'investigate a mysterious outbreak that leads him to a brutal truth that threatens the kingdom.' […] Kingdom will premiere on Netflix around the world in 2018.“
  • Der nächste Film von Macon Blair (der grade erst den wirklich guten I Don't Feel At Home In This World Anymore für Netflix drehte) klingt schon wieder sehr groß und The Shitheads ist halt auch ein Titel zu 'nem Film, der garantiert auf meiner Must-Watch-Liste landet: „Tracy Morgan and Luke Wilson will star in Imperative Entertainment’s comedic road movie The Shitheads […] The film, which Deadline is describing as 'The Last Detail by way of Bret Easton Ellis', concerns a pair of deeply unqualified bozos who’ve been hired to transport a troubled teenage millionaire to rehab.“
  • Lars von Triers The House that Jack built, Synopsis: „THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT takes place in 1970s USA. We follow the highly intelligent Jack through 5 incidents and are introduced to the murders that define Jack’s development as a serial killer. We experience the story from Jack’s point of view. He views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world. Despite the fact that the final and inevitable police intervention is drawing ever near (which both provokes and puts pressure on Jack) he is – contrary to all logic – set on taking greater and greater chances. Along the way we experience Jack’s descriptions of his personal condition, problems and thoughts through a recurring conversation with the unknown Verge – a grotesque mixture of sophistry mixed with an almost childlike self-pity and in-depth explanations of, for Jack, dangerous and difficult manoeuvres.“

Geostorm

After an unprecedented series of natural disasters threatened the planet, the world’s leaders came together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe. But now, something has gone wrong—the system built to protect the Earth is attacking it, and it’s a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything...and everyone along with it.

Dean Devlin (writer/producer, “Independence Day”) makes his feature film directorial debut with suspense thriller “Geostorm,” starring Gerard Butler (“Olympus Has Fallen,” “300”), Jim Sturgess (“Cloud Atlas”), Abbie Cornish (“Limitless”), Alexandra Maria Lara (“Rush”), Daniel Wu (“The Man with the Iron Fists,” “Warcraft: The Beginning”), with Oscar nominees Ed Harris (“The Hours,” “Apollo 13”) and Andy Garcia (“The Godfather: Part III”).

Black Code

Inspired by the memoir ‘Black Code: Inside the Battle for Cyberspace’ by The Citizen Lab’s director Ronald J Deibert, de Pencier broached a documentary subject altogether new to him. He served as producer on 2006’s Manufactured Landscapes and 2013’s Watermark, both of which were directed by his partner Jennifer Baichwal. These visually arresting films focus on the gradual and the alarming effects of climate change and human industry on land- and waterscapes. Black Code, on the other hand, has a topical urgency and investigative verve that prioritises its subject over its visuals – and for good reason. What it covers is nothing short of critical to the future of power, information, crime and democracy.

It’s been dubbed a “post-Snowden film”, and although Snowden himself appears throughout via FaceTime calls, crucially it looks past the impact of the individual. The Citizen Lab are “internet sleuths” who follow malware all around the global networks. They have teams of “cyber stewards” from various countries, with a special focus on regions where a mere Facebook post, tweet, or a web article can be enough grounds for torture, arrest, intimidation and blackmail.

Galaxy of Horrors

Trapped in a damaged cryogenic pod, a man is forced to watch a series of horrific science-fiction tales while his life support systems run out. Featuring eight intense stories of the unknown and other-worldly, equally wonderful and terrifying.

Siam Square

Phairat Khumwan makes his feature directorial debut here with a teen oriented ghost story revolving around a youthful cast and the titular square. (Screen Anarchy)

All Eyez On Me

The Transfiguration

In the SXSW Festival-screened horror-thriller The Transfiguration, a troubled teen named Milo hides behind his fascination with vampire lore. When he meets the equally alienated Sophie, the two form a bond that begins to challenge Milo’s dark obsession.
