A Devil’s Wind (2017)

Starring:

Brielle Edborg, Kayla Browne, Erica Leigh Boseski

Synopsis:

An otherworldly storm makes a wasteland of a region. The survivors are not the usual characters one might find in a story like this, nor is this movie what one might expect from a post-apocalyptic theme. This is not a processed Hollywood movie. No. The script was written in the manner of an ancient Greek play. Dialogue is the primary focus. Beware. In this era of formulaic movies, even indie directors copy mainstream sensibilities. As commercial success seems to depend on catering to a lazy viewer with a short attention span, Hollywood movies become more like sitcoms, or at least like television shows. So the best rebellion is not to shock or to offend, but to return to the ancient art in Greece, changing the focus from visceral images to sublime words, and requiring the audience to be active.

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Related Story: Exclusive Interview with Thelma’s Joachim Trier

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
