Hollywood, take note: When it comes to postapocalyptic films, audiences are fine with a little bit of crazy—or a lot of it. This South Korean thriller by Bong Joon-ho (now getting Oscar buzz for Parasite) is set on a speeding train containing the last of humanity. The movie finds room for class warfare, bizarre humor and a snobby Thatcherite turn by the mighty Tilda Swinton.
Every week, we round up the best movie events happening outside New York’s multiplexes, from major international film festivals (such as Sundance, the Toronto International Film Festival and the Tribeca Film Festival) and revivals at Film Forum and BAM to one-off movie screenings and in-person Q&As with stars, filmmakers and experts.
