Two young entrepreneurs in Cleveland hit the jackpot with a web company which runs scary videos made by users. As someone shoots a documentary about them, a suicide snuff video goes viral on their platform but the video seems to hide something truly disturbing. A mockumentary-come-horror movie, with an original use of found footage, perfects actors and mounting tension.

Pasquale is an unauthorized car-park attendant who has been sentenced to house arrest. He is allowed outside for two hours every day. He uses this time to return to the piazza where he used to work and to visit a storage room full of junk he has accumulated over his lifetime. A human condition which is unauthorized and illegitimate, but resists/exists.

A gloomy and disturbing transposition of the novel by George Orwell, who had already predicted it all back in 1949, from the invasion of privacy by a dominating Big Brother to the censoring of feelings. John Hurt is fantastic, but Richard Burton is unforgettable in his final performance. A great package, with music by the Eurythmics and the desaturated colors of the photography by Roger Deakins. Beautiful and, still today, underestimated.

The feelings of dismay which often occur in adolescence are even stronger when this moment in life is lived far from one’s homeland. Over the last few years, family reunification has brought many Chinese girls and boys to Barge and Bagnolo, two small communities at the foot of Turin’s Alps. The movie camera constructs delicate portraits of adolescents in search of identity, with moments of suspension when alienation takes the upper hand.

Florida like a capsule of MTV culture, YouTubers, spring breakers and pranksters, inspired by the cult book of the same title by Harmony Korine. The Belgian collective Leo Gabin surfs the imagery of American streaming and creates a layout which is sub-proletarian, narcissistic and nihilistic, self-destructive and innocent, imbued with euphoric desperation and in permanent contraction between what is shown and what is perceived.

Lou Castel’s existential parabola in Italy. Life “trapped” between two emblematic characters: Alessandro in Fists in the Pocket and Giovanni in Those Eyes, That Mouth. As Castel crosses Rome, suspended between post-industrial archeology and Pasolinian ruins, he unleashes a long flow of (sub)consciousness about the complexity and contradictions of his role as both actor and political activist.

The poetry of Emily Dickinson, one of the great poets of the 19th century, accompany Cynthia Nixon through the rooms and gardens of the poet’s home. Introverted, ironic, restless, Emily interacts with her father (Keith Carradine), her mother, her sisters and her friends, as she searches for answers. Davies crafts a familial and compassionate portrait, painful, sometimes funny, in which the settings and the light reflect true states of mind.

In a decadent Rome, where the neurosis of modern times is expressed through cynical and vulgar humor, Mauro Bonanni, who grew up in the suburban neighborhood of Tor Pignattara, approaches old age with deep existential disquiet. Like many others, he endures the invasion of illegal immigrants. And yet this suffering, existential rather than ideological, proves to be contradictory and open to unexpected solutions.
