Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

"Parasite," indeed, was a shock, though if a foreign film were to be

a (relative) great success, it would be from an established, more well-known director. Frankly, I was pleasantly surprised to see its (again, relatively so) wide release. Meanwhile, "Burning," a film I thought was superior to it, was very difficult to find on the big screen.

Perhaps the best of recent foreign releases, "An Elephant Sitting Still," by a young Chinese filmmaker (Hu Bo, who admitted to being a fan of Tarr's) (and Bela reciprocated by highly praising the young man), had been almost impossible to find in theaters (pre-virus, of course).

Tragically, there will be no more of Bo's work: he committed suicide soon after the film's release.

"Bridge the gap sufficiently." Not for me. My Kuro was great, but I couldn't compare it to the thrill of seeing 10 ft. tall lips or the audience experience (usually, early in the day to avoid noise makers).
