Son of Saul
NCFCA member Andrew Spitznas recommends Son of Saul over at Secular Cinephile:
It would be easy to dismiss these technical choices as the grandiose pretentions of a rookie director, if they weren’t so damn effective. But these decisions cohere to simulate the experience of a concentration camp inmate in a way that no previous movie has done. It quickly becomes clear that Saul is a worn-down cog in the Auschwitz machinery, for whom nothing more than tunnel vision and a “one step in front of the other” mentality is possible.
