Yeah, we know, it's a bit ridiculous. Day one has just closed on the Venice Film Festival, Telluride kicks off in a couple days and by this time next week, the first 24 hours in TIFF will be nearing an end. It's that time of year, a bonanza of movie related goodness, and aren't you just glad it's not TV Spot #9 for some blockbuster movie you already forgot about? Long story short, there's a whole bunch of stuff headed to Colorado and with it some new images to go with it.

Burning Bush

"Burning Bush": In 1968, Soviet tanks moved in to crush the “Prague Spring” experiment in democracy. In January 1969, Jan Palach, a 21-year-old student,set himself on fire in Wenceslas Square,searing the national conscience and setting a movement alight. Agnieszka Holland’s harrowing, courageous and utterly mesmerizing film, commissioned by European HBO and made in collaboration with members of the Palach family, traces the extreme price exacted behind the scenes from those who make history and on those closest to them. Across three epic chapters, the grey areas are filmed with scorching intensity, radiating both fury and hope against hope.This is the kind of fierce, historic document that never existed before, and that is arriving on schedule to feed the fires of a rising generation that is resisting a culture of lies, erosions and erasures of democracy, from Egypt to Oakland. –PS (Czech Republic, 2013, Episode 1, 84m; Episodes 2&3, 152m)

"Starred Up": The teenage criminal Eric Love (Jack O’Connell) seems street-smart enough to navigate the corruption of the British prison system. But after his violent streak sends him to an adult prison, Eric comes face to face with Nev (Ben Mendelsohn), a career criminal…and hislong-lost father. The two have not seen each other in years, and while they warily test each other, other murderous authority figures attempt to control the boy. Director David Mackenzie (YOUNG ADAM,TFF 2003) has crafted a lean, vigorous film, shot economically by WINTER’S BONE DP Michael McDonough from the utterly convincing script by Jonathan Asser, a former therapist in the prison system. But STARRED UP’s greatest pleasure is O’Connell’s sensationally kinetic breakout role, reminiscent of Tahar Rahim in A PROPHET. Somewhere in Movie Star Heaven, James Cagney is applauding. –LG (U.K., 2013, 100m)
