“Bergman Island” (scale)

Mia Hansen-Løve raved about her latest drama One Fine Morning, but I prefer this 2021 puzzle, a film that fascinatingly reveals creative inspiration. In this film, Chris (the consistently fantastic Vicky Krieps) and Tony Sanders (Tim Roth) travel to the infamous island of Faro, where Ingmar Bergman worked, lived and set some of his films. Tony admires Bergman, but Chris is less impressed with the film icon, partly because of his attitude towards women. He explores the island while working on a screenplay about a woman (Mia Wasikowska, one of the best performances of her career) who travels to the island for a wedding and meets a man (Anders Danielsen Lie). Criterion’s edition of this character-driven drama includes new interviews with the director and star, along with a short film shot during production by Gabe Klinger (“Porto”).

“Bones and All”

Luca Guadagnino, director of “Call Me by Your Name” and “Suspiria,” has made one of his most wrenching films in this tale of young cannibals in love. Using the practice of eating human flesh as an allegorical jumping-off point for outsiders, “Bones and All” is the story of Maren Yearly (the excellent Taylor Russell), who runs away from society when her father can no longer cope with the fact that he is a cannibal. Along the way, she meets two men: the oddly excitable Sully (Mark Rylance, who goes all-in) and the supportive Lee (Timothee Chalamet). What unfolds is a bold coming-of-age story that will be re-watched and rated far more than many of 2022’s most critically acclaimed films.
