    Göteborg Review: Cambodian Foreign-Language Oscar Nominee And Cannes Winner 'The Missing Picture'

    Part documentary, part autobiographical art experiment and part defiant act of memorialization, it’s easy to see why Cambodian film “The Missing Picture,” which screens at the Göteborg International Film Festival this week, now occupies an Oscar nomination slot for Best Foreign Language Film (as we’...

    Göteborg Review: 'Starred Up' Is An Instant Classic Of The Prison Movie Genre

    What a glorious, freezing, snowy Swedish Monday at the Göteborg International Film Festival it was, because, for a non-Sundance attendee like me, it yielded the first truly great film of 2014. “Starred Up” (which, OK fine, actually premiered at Telluride last year) is an instant classic of the priso...

    Göteborg Review: 'The Strange Little Cat' A Lovely, Baffling, Totally Subjective Experience

    If ever there were a case of a film being a reflecting pool of the viewer's understanding, rather than a monolithic piece of work that we can either get wrong or right in terms of its author's intentions, "The Strange Little Cat," which plays this week during the Göteborg International Film Festival...

    Director of the hotly buzzed “A Hijacking” (our glowing review here) that has been doing the festival rounds since Venice last year, Tobias Lindholm is, in his own words, about to “close up the circus and start working on the next thing.” But with his two breakthrough film projects “The Hunt,” which...

    Göteborg Review: Volker Schlöndorff’s ‘Calm At Sea’ Is A Wrenching WWII Tale Told In Capable But Old-Fashioned Style

    A story that is apparently very famous all over France -- that of Guy Moquet, a 17 year-old boy executed by the Nazis as part of a reprisal for the assassination of one of their officers -- forms the heart of veteran German director Volker Schlondorff’s latest film, which screened at the Göteborg In...
