Paradies/Glaube & At Any Price

Aug 31 | Venice Film Festival

Paradies/Glaube, Austrian, Ulrich Seidl, always controversial filmaker, a middleaged lady who refinds her Christian faith & becomes obsessive, complicated by the reappearance of her wheelchair bound Muslim husband. I fell asleep for a while, it really divided opinion.
Rating: 5/10

At Any Price, USA, by Ramin Bahrani, first of the US biggies, Dennis Quaid & Efron starred, set in the wide expanses of Iowa, well made & various dramatic turns, long ovation.
Rating: 8/10.
