Films by Collection

Staff Picks: Tim Wong

It would be stating the obvious to single out exciting new films by Ruben Östlund (The Square), Agnès Varda (Faces Places), Yorgos Lanthimos (The Killing of a Sacred Deer), or any of the heavyweight Cannes titles, really, as must-sees at this year’s Festival – which, tipping the scales at 172 features and short film programmes, is our biggest yet – so instead here’s a selection of great/potentially great films easily overlooked and ripe for discovery.

The Untamed

La región salvaje

Amat Escalante

Love triangle drama and erotic bio-sci-fi thrills meet in a truly bizarre exploration of oppressive machismo and liberating sexual abandon from Mexican director Amat Escalante.
