Chongqing Hot Pot
(China) What begins as a bank heist by four amateur robbers turns into a labyrinthine tour through subterranean Chongqing, a trip down memory lane, a damsel in career-distress, and a showdown with the real pros. This screwball caper stars Bai Baihe (“Go Away Mr. Tumor”) and Chen Kun (“Let the Bullets Fly”). Opened May 12.
(Japan) Keeping with Japan’s tradition of slow-burning, bone-rattling horror films, “The Inerasable” follows a novelist as she investigates the case of a student who hears strange noises coming from an empty room in an otherwise perfectly ordinary house. Opened May 12.
(Ireland/UK/Greece) In a city in the ambiguous future, single people are given 45 days to find a partner or they’re forced to turn into animals and are released into the wild.
