“A visionary tour de force … wondrous.” –Variety
An old man makes a living by selling bamboo. One day, he finds a princess in a bamboo stalk. The princess is only the size of a finger. Her name is Kaguya. When Kaguya grows up, 5 men from prestigious families propose to her. Kaguya asks the men to find memorable marriage gifts for her, but the 5 men are unable to find what Kaguya wants. Then, the Emperor of Japan proposes to her. (Japan, 2014, 137m, GKids)
After years researching her film about our increasingly surveillance nation, Laura Poitras began receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by U.S. intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. (U.S., 2014, 118m, DCP, Radius TWC)
