Dunkirk (Christopher Nolan, 2017). Nolan and World War II: a director still playing tricks with time-bending storytelling. The bottom line: cross-cutting still works. (full review 7/19/2017)

The Bad Batch (Ana Lily Amirpour, 2017). Confident brazenness from the director of A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, including the willingness to shock the more delicate arthouse fans of her first film. A desert setting, a dismembered heroine, and Leone-like slooowwwness make for a genuinely unusual film.
