Koji su NAJOČEKIVANIJI HORORI 2017? Tu listu sam već nedavno okačio OVDE.
A sad, evo da izlistam i filmove izvan horor žanra koje nestrpljivo očekujem ove godine. Ipak, imajte na umu da su neki od ovih već gotovi i bili su prikazivani na festivalima ili u redovnoj distribuciji, ali još nisu dospeli do nas, ovde; neki svoje premijere imaju u narednim mesecima; a neki nisu još ni počeli da se snimaju i pitanje je da li će biti završeni i prikazani do kraja ove godine.
Uprkos tome, evo čemu se valja nadati u 2017. godini a da nije horor.
Podelio sam ih, grubo, na žanrove.


Incerta Glòria
Agustí Villaronga

Još jedna mučna drama iz perioda španskog građanskog rata u stilu BLACK BREAD.

Wicked Games
Ulrich Seidl
A narrative feature about two brothers whose past catches up with them.

Happy End
Michael Haneke
With Isabelle Huppert, Mathieu Kassovitz and Jean-Louis Trintignant.
About a bourgeois European family, set against the backdrop of the refugee crisis in Europe.

(Plac zabaw)
Bartosz M. Kowalski
Final day of school in a small Polish town. It's the very last chance for a 12 year old Gabrysia to tell her classmate that she had fallen in love with him. She sets up a secret meeting and blackmails the boy to show up. But what was supposed to be an intimate talk spins out of control and leads to an unexpected ending.

Andrey Zvyagintsev
An estranged couple in the midst of divorce must search for their 12-year-old son when he disappears.

Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy (The Tribe)
Drama about a jealous policeman working as a watchman in the area sealed off after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

Call Me By Your Name

Luca Guadagnino (A Bigger Splash, Suspiria)
With: Armie Hammer, Timothee Chalamet, Michael Stuhlbarg
A young American boy living in Italy in the 1980s has an affair with an older man
Above all a story of first love — one that transcends the same-sex dynamic of its central couple. Guadagnino recreates Elio’s life-changing summer with such intensity that we might as well be experiencing it first-hand.

Queen of Spades
Pavel Lungin
Alexander Pushkin (short story)
Once upon a time, the great soprano Sophia Maier conquered the world with her voice, her beauty and the legend she carefully built around herself. Now only the legend remains- the diva herself hasn't performed for years, nor been seen in the glittering circles of society she once dominated. But the woman who fascinated and thrilled the world for so long would like to crown her career with one more triumph. And she'll use every dirty trick she knows to achieve it.
(Ovo je bilo na FEST-u ali mi je promaklo jer se termin poklapao s UČENIKOM, koji mi se više gledao.)

Beach Rats
Eliza Hittman
Beautifully rendered study of repressed sexuality in un-hip Brooklyn. Frankie, the oh-so-beautiful, oh-so-confused teenage protagonist of “Beach Rats” isn’t much for answering questions. “I don’t know what I like,” he says curtly, if not dishonestly, to the various older men, sought in gay chat rooms, who want to know if they turn him on. And when a hesitantly acquired girlfriend asks him, twice, if he finds her pretty, he pointedly refuses to answer, bouncing the question back at her in a tone that’s both taunting and searching. Writer-director Eliza Hittman has a sensitive ear for the way adolescents reveal themselves through evasion: It’s a tension crucial to this anxious, tactile, profoundly sad study of a young man’s journey of sexual self-discovery and self-betrayal on the luridly faded boardwalks of Brooklyn.


Thomas Kruithof
A timely political thriller involving a mild-mannered bookkeeper sucked into a nightmare of uncertain loyalties, told with edgy flair.
A lean, edgy drama about an outwardly bland middle-aged factotum hired to transcribe taped conversations that may or may not have been recorded by the French secret service. Set during an election clearly intended to elicit parallels with current right-wing campaigns from Marine Le Pen to Donald Trump, the film, at one time given the unwieldy English title “The Eavesdropper,” boasts the kind of skillfully crafted script that keeps audiences tensely guessing the outcome until the delicious “did that just happen?” denouement.

Benoît Jacquot
With Isabelle Huppert and Gaspard Ulliel.
A psychological thriller, “Eva” is adapted from James Hadley Chase’s novel which turns on a beautiful, yet lethal woman, to be played by Huppert.

The Beguiled
Sofia Coppola
With: Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst
During the Civil War, an injured Union soldier hides out in a girls’ boarding school in Mississippi. A seductive thriller, remake of Don Siegel’s 1971 Western melodrama.

Brawl in Cell Block 99
S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk)
With Vince Vaughn, Don Johnson and Udo Kier.
A former boxer becomes a drug runner, only to end up in prison and forced to fight for his life.

We Go On
Andy Mitton and Jesse Holland (Yellowbrickroad)
A Los Angeles loner afraid of death discovers a little more about the afterlife than he wanted. A supernatural drama that will intrigue genre fans while frustrating those looking for more formulaic horror-content payoff. This uneven but watchable effort stars Clark Freeman as a man of many phobias whose terror of death leads him to find out more about the afterlife than he wanted. Given a significant boost by Annette O’Toole’s turn as the protagonist’s stubbornly protective mother.

Based on a True Story
Roman Polanski
Written by Olivier Assayas.

Eva Green is a writer who becomes involved with an obsessive admirer.

You Were Never Really Here

Under the Silver Lake
David Robert Mitchell (It Follows)
With Andrew Garfield

Three Billboards Outside Of Ebbing, Missouri
Martin McDonagh (In Bruges)
With: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage
When her daughter is murdered and the local cops seem to cover up the death, a Missouri woman goes to war against the authorities.

Glass Garden
Shin Su-won (Madonna)

Park Hoon-jung (New World)
The son of a high-ranking North Korean officer is suspected of being a serial killer. Agents from the North and South, as well as Interpol, work together to track him down.

Fabricated City
Park Kwang-hyun (Welcome to Dongmakgol)
A jobless youth is an ace gamer, but when he’s framed for murder, he needs the help of a hacker to uncover the mystery behind his predicament.
---Ovo je pre neki dan procurilo, pa više nije “očekivan” nego je već privoljen na hard; ali neka ga i na ovoj listi, za putokaz drugima.---

Bad Day for the Cut
Chris Baugh
A pile of corpses paves the way to revenge for a seemingly mild-mannered but resourceful-when-roused protagonist in “Bad Day for the Cut.”  Accomplished debut feature manages to develop its own distinct flavor while fitting snugly into the general tradition of latter-day U.K. gangster pics, with their rueful humor, colorful characters and realistically nasty violence.

Asura: The City of Madness
Kim Sung-soo
Splattered with Korean aesthetics of troglodytic violence and blighted by irredeemable characters, Kim Sung-soo’s “Asura: The City of Madness” is a stygian crime thriller with a jaundiced eye at South Korean regional politics. The cesspool of venal humanity does exert grisly fascination, and those who can contain their moral disgust will become invested in the antihero — a crooked cop caught between the devil and the deep blue sea. In Indian mythology, Asuras are demigods consumed by negative passions, perpetually fighting each other. This couldn’t be a better allegory for the protagonists, whose thirst for money and power turn the world into a living hell.
 I ovo odavno ima da se skine, ali dostupni titl je još uvek previše mehanički i sirov da bi se s njim moglo gledati. Ako neko naleti na dobar titl, nek javi.

Blade Runner 2049
Denis Villeneuve (Arrival)
With: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Jared Leto
Sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic, picking up with an older Deckard thirty years on from the events of the original. Original writer Hamilton Fancher co-writing the script with Michael Green. Villeneuve’s bringing regular collaborators Roger Deakins and Johan Johansson, so it should look and sound amazing.

High Life
Claire Denis
With Robert Pattinson, Patricia Arquette, Mia Goth
Ambitious sci-fi film written by novelist Zadie Smith and Nick Laird. A father and his daughter struggle to survive in deep space where they live in isolation.

Ghost in the Shell
Rupert Sanders
Scarlett Johansson and Takeshi Kitano
In the near future, Major is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world's most dangerous criminals.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
Luc Besson
Dane DeHaan
Passion-filled adaptation of the 1960s-era French comic book about the titular time-traveling hero.

Daniel Espinosa (“Safe House”)
With: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds
The crew of the International Space Station find a sample that might be the first proof of extra-terrestrial life.


Duncan Jones (Moon)
With: Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux, Sam Rockwell
In near-future Berlin, a mute bartender searches for a woman, aided and abetted by a pair of sinister American surgeons. A “Blade Runner”-style near-future noir compared to “Casablanca” and the like.


Sion Sono
Fashion star Kioko is bored in her apartment, waiting for a meeting with Watanabe, a chief-editor who’s interviewing her. In the domination and humiliation game between her and her assistant, the roles will slowly invert. Unless it’s all fiction?
A film commissioned by Nikkatsu to relaunch its Porn Novel, which the author turned into a personal and metaphysical exercise.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure
Takashi Miike
Live-action, based on the manga by Hirohiko Araki, is slated for the summer. In a world where people can wield psychic avatars, a family must unite to track down a serial killer

Karaoke Crazies
Kim Sang-Chan

This debut feature is a charmingly off-beat drama about a failing karaoke bar and the band of oddballs who make it their home. First off, Sang-Chan deserves credit for executing a film which boomerangs through tones so fast it will give you whiplash. At one moment the film will have you giggling at its ridiculous nature, at others there’s an eerie intensity, but even when the film seems to throw its lot in with violence and rape, and it still swings back around to family-friendly joviality.

Vox Lux
Brady Corbet (Childhood Of A Leader)
With: Rooney Mara, Jude Law
Drama set between 1999 and the present day, following a young woman as she rises from tragedy to become a pop superstar.

The Insects
Jan Svankmajer
Svankmajer is loosely basing his latest on a 1922 play from the Čapek Brothers, From the Life of Insects, combined with Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. Six amateur thespians meet in a pub to rehearse the Čapeks’ play, while their personal stories interweave with those of the characters they are about to play. The play is intended as a backdrop in which insects behave like humans and humans like insects.

David Lynch: The Art Life
Jon Nguyen
Nominally focused on the celebrated filmmaker’s lesser-known dabblings in fine art, “The Art Life” emerges as a more expansive study of Lynch’s creative impulses and preoccupations, as he relates first-hand the formative experiences that spurred and shaped a most unusual imagination. Essentially a feature-length interview with the man himself, with no other on-screen contributors, the doc’s simplicity of form belies the kinks and curves of its portraiture.

King of the Belgians
Jessica Woolworth & Peter Brosens (LA CINQUIEME SAISON).
A hair-raising quintessence of European fairy tales around the last king of the Belgians lost in the Balkans.
Belgian king Nicolas III and his small retinue – including a war-correspondent-turned-documentarian – are stranded in Turkey just as Wallonia secedes from Belgium. Smuggling themselves out of Istanbul disguised as folk singers, the crew set out on an anthropological voyage across the Balkans.

Let the Bodies Sunbathe!
Helene Cattet and Bruno Forzani (Amer i The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears)
Based on a 1971 novel by famed French crime novelist Jean-Patrick Manchette, Let the Bodies Sunbathe! (aka Corpses in the Sun) seems to center around the eccentric hostess of an isolated locale who comes in contact with stolen gold in a van as well as policemen on the trail of the perpetrators that attempted to steal it.

Rag Union
This Russian absurdist tragicomedy about a punk nihilist collective enjoyably showcases a livewire quartet of young thesps.
Not many films open in utero, with a fetus smoking a cigarette as his older self intones in voiceover, “I have a terrible memory,” but “Rag Union” isn’t like many films. A bracing tragicomic punk fable, it also features homemade bombs, beetle-eating and parkour, along with one of the sparkier and more committed no-name ensemble performances of recent memory. The brainchild of Gen-X debut scripter-helmer Mikhail Mestetskiy, this is textured firecracker filmmaking, where the stunts and surreality can’t wholly drown out a howl of rage over the political status quo in contemporary Russia. Genuine entertainment value.
