(M) One of the best films yet about an alien in­va­sion of Earth, this se­ri­ously in­ten­tioned and very classy drama from Cana­dian di­rec­tor De­nis Vil­leneuve stars Amy Adams as a lin­guist re­quested to at­tempt to com­mu­ni­cate with the in­hab­i­tants of mys­te­ri­ous space­craft that have reached Earth. This drama poses se­ri­ous ques­tions about mankind’s abil­ity to deal with the kind of sit­u­a­tion de­picted, and ex­plores the fraught re­la­tion­ship be­tween sci­en­tists, govern­ments and the me­dia.

The Turquoise Ele­phant This ab­sur­dist farce by Stephen Car­leton sug­gests that some­how we will in­sist on danc­ing as the world col­lapses around us. It is the near fu­ture.
