Top30 Film Discoveries of 2019
20. The Patience Stone (Syngué Sabour, Pierre de Patience)
The Patience Stone was also available on MUBI.
19. The King and the Mockingbird (Le Roi et l’Oiseau)
This film was in production since the 1950s, and was release in some complete form in 1980, and you can tell the amount of work that went into the project, considering the scale of it all. Not even earlier Disney classics, or contemporary animated films, feel as enormous.
18. What Dreams May Come
Visual effects nominees used to be so pure and wholesome.
You have no idea how blow away I was when I realized that 881 in Cantonese sounds like “papaya,” hence “Papaya sisters” with no papayas. xD
16. Mermaid (Русалка)
Russians… and their tragedies.
