Ten Must-See Films From This Year’s London Film Festival

Although presenting a smaller programme than found in any recent pre-pandemic instalment, the 65th London Film Festival still offered up hundreds of new features and shorts, panels, restorations of classics, VR works, and big screen previews of prestige TV series (e.g., season 3 of Succession). It was a relative return to normalcy, made most evident by the plentiful red-carpet ceremonies and almost every programmed feature getting screened across the central London venues. That said, the increased accessibility of last year’s smaller, largely digital edition wasn’t completely abandoned: a decent amount of the features could be rented digitally from anywhere in the UK. And select cinemas in other British cities had their own screenings of some of the higher-profile titles.

Sitges 2021 Review: BELLE

At this stage of his career, I think it's pretty safe to say that Mamoru Hosoda has firmly established himself as one of the best contemporary Japanese animation directors. And he's also no stranger at Sitges, where he has won four Anima't Awards (the festival award for animated movies) for The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2006), Summer Wars (2009), Wolf Children (2012) and Mirai (2018). So it's only natural that considering those precedents, Hosoda's latest film is one of this Sitges' Festival most eagerly anticipated films.

Fantastic Fest 2021: BELLE is an Ambitious Social Media Spectacle

Mamoru Hosoda’s latest anime feature is a thoughtful exploration of the virtual masks we wear. Mamoru Hosoda’s films have a knack for exploring the fantastical worlds that exist in conjunction with our own, from the alternative mythological worlds of Japanese folklore in The Boy and the Beast to the stunning anthropomorphized social media of Summer Wars. Vibrantly underpinning these beautifully illustrated universes is a deeper, earnest exploration of inner worlds. Hosoda’s fascinated with how we connect to each other as human beings: how the various personas we adapt to get through our daily lives only stunt the growth of the people we have the potential to become. We could go back in time to fix our mistakes or explore the consequences of our actions (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Mirai) or carefully choose to be men over beasts (Wolf Children) but Hosoda unabashedly celebrates the inevitable conclusion for each of these fruitless pursuits.

NYFF Review: ‘Belle’ (竜とそばかすの姫) will make your heart sing [Grade: A-]

The virtual world in Belle is called “U,” as in it specializes in “you” and what makes each and every person distinctively them. Though the world is advertised as a place where you can be anyone, nobody can really hide from their true selves. Their qualities, brilliant or flawed, will be dramatically enhanced when they enter for the first time. For a world as vast and ever-expanding as “U,” it’s easy to get lost. To borrow from Don Hertzfeldt’s words in his World of Tomorrow short, many people would “disappear into its safe infinity, to be never heard from again.”
