2013 Films Not Yet In Theaters

Cairo 678

Bev Questad @ It’s Just Movies

  • Excerpt: This female empowerment film, inspired by real-life stories, does encourage women to stand up for themselves. But it also includes portrayals of men who join with them in inspiring support. This is an important film to see, for instruction as well as insight.

Comrade Kim Goes Flying

Ron Wilkinson @ ItsJustMovies.com

  • Excerpt: North Korean comrade Kim flies into a theatre near you. Look at her at your own risk, lest you be beamed to death.

The Day of Crows

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: an odd story about a wild child, the evils of small town prejudice and gossip and love that crosses from the living to the dead presented in a style heavily influenced by the work of Hayao Miyazaki

Fly Me to the Moon

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: sure it’s contrived, but Kruger and Boon are hilariously well matched – why can’t Hollywood make ’em like this?

Granny’s Funeral

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: There’s a lot of black humor to the film, especially regarding the rituals surrounding death, but the filmmaker/star is a little too eager to allow Armand to have his cake and eat it too.

Nicky’s Family

Bev Questad @ It’s Just Movies

  • Excerpt: Taking place in Prague during the Nazi invasion, “Nicky’s Family” is moving, well-told and inspirational. It is about the grand ripple effect that doing the right thing can create.

The Parade

[New Today] Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live

  • Excerpt: A cat’s cradle of ethnic prejudices gets tangled with homophobia in the Serbian comedy “The Parade.” The bigotry is raw and the language isn’t tame, but the way Dragojevic doesn’t shy away from the hate while still managing to get laughs makes for daring entertainment.

Resistance

Marcio Sallem @ Em Cartaz [Portuguese]

Survival Prayer

Bev Questad @ It’s Just Movies

  • Excerpt: This beautiful work of art is a loving film experience that captures the old life of the Haida people who live on what used to be called the Queen Charlotte Islands.

Together

Ron Wilkinson @ ItsJustMovies.com

  • Excerpt: Charge up Amelie’s cell phone, rev up the scooter, and we are off to save the world.

We Ride: The Story of Snowboarding

Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]
