Obscuro Barroco

Film Review: Obscuro Barroco at Berlinale

Obscuro Barroco is a singular cinematic experience. It’s unconventional, but don’t let its experimental nature put you off. Instead, let director Evangelia Kranioti take your hand and guide you through a glamorous city in a light you’ve never seen it shown in before.


Essential Opinion: 1:54

1:54 is a fantastic teen movie, the debut feature from director Yan England tackles a plethora of serious themes you’d expect to find in an after school special- bullying, suicide and the tension of hiding your sexuality in a hostile school environment are all present here. Where England’s film stands out from the pack is by perfectly integrating them in to an underdog sports drama, that breathes new life in to that tired genre.
