Its Only The End Of The World: Xavier Dolan
After 12 years of estrangement a writer (Gaspard Ulliel) returns to his hometown, planning on announcing his impending death to his family. However, his mother (Nathalie Baye), tempestuous siblings (Vincent Cassel and Léa Seydoux) and beleaguered sister-in-law (Marion Cotillard) have their own personal grievances to air. As buried resentments threaten to surface and fits and feuds begin to unfold, all attempts at empathy are sabotaged by the family’s inability to listen and love. Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes 2016. ($32.95, Region 2)

Le Bureau: Season 2 ($59.95, Region 2)
French intelligence officer Guillaume Debailly (Mathieu Kassovitz) and not so new recruit Marina Loiseau (Sara Giraudeau) return in this excellent French political drama—even better than the first season.

Dancer ($29.95)
Blessed with astonishing power & poise, Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm & became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal. At the peak of his success, aged 21, he walked away, driven to the brink of self-destruction by stardom—his talent more a burden than a gift. This is an unprecedented look into the life of a complex young man who has made ballet go viral. Urban rebel, iconoclast, airborne angel, Sergei is transforming the shape of ballet as we know it. But virtuosity comes with a high price. How can you be free to be yourself when you are ballet’s ‘hottest property’?

Die Nibelungen: Dir. Fritz Lang ($32.95, Region 2)
Perhaps the most stately of Fritz Lang’s two-part epics, this long-awaited HD restoration, presented in its original frame rates and aspect ratio, the five-hour Die Nibelungen is a courageous and hallucinatory work. Adapted from the myth that is the basis for Wagner’s Ring Cycle, part One, sees the eponymous Siegfried rise to power, part 2 sees his widow exact vengeance in one of the most exhilarating & terrifying end-sequences in all of cinema. Features include newly translated optional English subtitles for the original German inter-titles and an hour-long documentary: The Heritage of Die Nibelungen

Things to Come: Dir. Mia Hansen-Løve
