Peter Lord

Simone Massi

Robert Morgan

Robert Morgan is a BAFTA-nominated short-film maker. His latest project is a segment in a horror portmanteau piece, ABCs of Death 2.


Fantastic Planet was cowritten and production-designed by Roland Topor, who is a key talent for me; his designs are so surreal and nightmarish that they turn the film into a total work of art. Blood Tea and Red String is an obsessive, stop-motion labor of love made by one woman over a 13-year period. It feels sort of like a bad dream that Beatrix Potter might have had. It’s weird and disturbing and cute and melancholy, all at the same time. In The Tale of the Fox, I love the way Ladislaw Starevicz’s puppets move. They’re just so alive and excitable. Just an incredible feat of vision and technique. It’s Such a Beautiful Day is a great example of personal filmmaking on a grand scale—totally homemade and intimate, but amazingly ambitious and profound at the same time.”

It Follows

  • Rated as: 5/5

Imbued with the kind of idea that can turn a horror film into a sensation, David Robert Mitchell’s thriller sets a relentless camera on characters that have no idea what’s in pursuit.

Man From Reno

  • Rated as: 4/5

A Japanese detective novelist escapes her latest book tour, hides in San Francisco and gets swept up in a murder mystery. A brilliant performance from Ayako Fujitani (Steven Seagal’s daughter) helps cement this as the best indie neo-noir since Brick.

Amour Fou

  • Rated as: 4/5

The great Jessica Hausner (Lourdes) returns with this austere true story of the doomed 1810 romance between German writer Heinrich von Kleist and Henriette Vogel. Forget period whimsy; this melodrama will sting for months.
