SAINT LAURENT

R  |  2 hours 30 minutes
Focusing on the dark, hedonistic, wildly creative decade from (from 1967 to ’77) in Yves Saint Laurent’s life and career, Bertrand Bonello’s SAINT LAURENT is a kaleidoscopic torrent of lavish excess. As one of history’s greatest fashion designers entered a decade of freedom, neither came out of it in one piece. Over the course of the film, the couturier (played by Gaspard Ulliel) becomes a myth, a brand, and an avatar of his era, moving through a string of hothouse ateliers and nightclubs whose centers of gravity all seem to realign around him.

WILD TALES

R  |  2 hours 2 minutes

Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of WILD TALES cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover’s betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control.
