The first installment of Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve’s take on Dune was sublime. Between breathtaking visuals, a palatable story, and impeccable sound design, the movie set the table nicely for its sequel due out this year and for an eventual extended universe.

Jordan Peele’s Nope is decidedly less scary than his previous efforts, but it might be his most ambitious. It feels like his closest attempt at making a Spielberg-like sci-fi film, without fully aping his style. Peele’s got a great eye for these types of movies and enlisting Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer elevates it to another level.

The Banshees of Inisherin

Starring: Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon

The Banshees of Inisherin asks how a person would react if their best friend suddenly decided it was time to part ways. It’s as funny as it is awkward, with Colin Farrel aptly settling into the lovable idiot role while Brendan Gleeson tries to make the most of his aging character.

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Alex Wolff, Adam Arkin

A movie about a man searching for his beloved pig really could only star Nicolas Cage. If the premise sounds weird to you, it’s because it is. It’s surprisingly poignant too, brushing off any worries that a movie about a pig might be well, just another Nic Cage movie.

Crimes of the Future

Starring: Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux, Kristen Stewart

As is mostly the case with David Cronenberg movies, Crimes of the Future is mostly gross, but in a good way. The film follows a performance artist couple who perform surgery in front of audiences to show just how far human evolution has come. The movie shows many gory scenes so those with an easily unsettled stomach should come in prepared.

Steven Soderbergh is an expert at crafting compact thriller movies. With Kimi, the director tackles spying through smart speakers and the COVID-19 pandemic. It might be easy to look at it as a lockdown flick, but its themes are still important today and they might be even more relevant tomorrow.

The Last Duel

Starring: Adam Driver, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck

The Last Duel may not have been a box-office success, but it should have. The movie tells the story of the real-life Jean de Carrouges who challenges his friend Jacques Le Gris to a duel after the former’s wife accused the latter of raping her. The movie offers the perspective of each of its main characters to show how exactly different people perceive a heinous act.

The Northman

Starring: Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Anya-Taylor Joy

Alexander Skarsgård has been stealing the show on the fourth season of Succession but his habit of taking up oddball roles continued on Robert Eggers’ The Northman. A brutal tale of revenge, the movie follows Amleth, a Viking prince who wants to avenge his father’s murder. It might be a simple story but its intensity makes it worth the watch.

The Grizzlie Truth

Starring: N/A

Remember the Vancouver Grizzlies? The Grizzlie Truth aims to recount how the team came to be and how, exactly, it came apart and ended up in Memphis. It’s a complicated story, but Kathleen Jayme’s documentary takes a stab at explaining how Canada’s other NBA team failed.

Drive My Car

Starring: Hidetoshi Nishijima, Tōko Miura, Reika Kirishima

Let’s get the most daunting part out of the way: it’s a three-hour movie. Despite its heavy runtime, Drive My Car is a tender look into grief, faithfulness, and guilt. The film follows Yūsuke Kafuku whose wife passes away and how he learns to live with all the mixed emotions that came with her death. It’s a sombre and at-times slow movie, but its tenderness makes it worth the watch.
