Episode 40 - The Eyes Of My Mother
3 days ago
Episode 40 of One Week Only! This week’s key film is “The Eyes of my Mother,” an incredibly creepy horror film about a young girl who develops a dark obsession with eyes after the tragic death of her optometrist mother. Directed by Nicolas Pesce, and featuring beautiful black & white cinematography, this is a striking directorial debut that terrifies without every being explicit or grotesque. Now playing in Los Angeles & New York, from Magnet Releasing.
Awards season is in full swing! We take a closer look at the Film Independent Spirit Award nominations, and highlight some of our favorites, from the astonishing recognition for “Chronic” and “The Childhood of a Leader” to some well-deserved Best Director nominations for female directors Andrea Arnold and Kelly Reichardt.
We also review the documentary “Mifune: The Last Samurai” about the legendary Japanese actor, directed by Steven Okazaki; the anime comedy “your name” about two teenagers who find themselves switching bodies, directed by Makota Shinkai; the French drama “Things to Come” about a philosophy professor going through a midlife crisis, starring Isabelle Huppert and directed by Mia Hansen-Løve; and the animated satire “Nerdland” about two hapless friends trying to get famous in Hollywood, directed by Chris Prynoski.
