“Bergman Island” (Criterion)

Mia Hansen-Løve has won accolades for her latest drama, “One Fine Morning,” but I prefer this puzzle box of a 2021 movie, which fascinatingly unboxes creative inspiration. In this film, Chris (the always-fantastic Vicky Krieps) and Tony Sanders (Tim Roth) travel to the infamous Faro Island, where Ingmar Bergman worked, lived and shot some of his movies. Tony admires Bergman, but Chris is less enamored with the movie icon, in part because of his treatment of women. She explores the island while working on a script about a woman (Mia Wasikowska, giving one of the best performances of her career) who travels to the island for a wedding and meets a man (Anders Danielsen Lie). The Criterion edition of this character-driven drama includes new interviews with the director and star, plus a short film shot during production by Gabe Klinger (“Porto”).

“Bones and All”

Luca Guadagnino, the director of “Call Me by Your Name” and “Suspiria”, delivered one of his most controversial films in this story of young cannibals in love. Using the practice of eating human flesh as an allegorical starting point for strangers, “Bones and All” is the story of Maren Yearly (the excellent Taylor Russell), who flees society when her father can’t stand the fact that she is a cannibal. Along the way, she meets two men: the oddly unsettling Sully (all-in Mark Rylance) and the supportive Lee (Timothee Chalamet). What Unfolds is a daring coming-of-age story that will be revisited and re-evaluated far more than many of 2022’s most acclaimed films.
