Jason Adamsreporting from the New York Film Festival

LikePhantom Threadlast year Pawel Pawlikowski's magnificently romantic and visually bewitching new filmCold Wardeals in the secret languages and strange understandings between true lovers - that no matter how hard it is on your soul and constitution that person sitting across the table is the one made for you and vice versa,and you might be the end of each other but you'll be each other's beginnings too...

Two more Oscar submissions announced

The foreign Oscar submissions keep on coming.Egypt will be submitting Sheikh Jackson,a potential crowd pleaser about an Islamic cleric undergoing an identity crisis when he flashes back to his Michael Jackson obsessed youth when Michael dies.Egypt has yet to be Oscar-nominated but who knows.

A more likely nominee on paper,given the history,is Poland'sSpoor(originally called Pokot) a murder mystery directed by Agnieska Holland.The film about an animal rights activist that becomes involved in a string of mysterious crimes has been gettinginterestingly mixed reviews.Holland first came to international fame (and Oscar love) with her big arthouse hit and WW II dramaEuropa Europa(1990) and was recently in the hunt again with the foreign film nomineeIn Darkness(2011).You could argue that she's Oscar's second favorite Polish director (of those who kept making movies in Poland,that is) after the late legendary Andrzej Wajda who was up for the foreign film Oscar four times and eventually received an Honorary.

Review: The Zookeeper's Wife

A portion of this review was originally published in Nathaniel's column at Towleroad

Jessica Chastain stars as Antonina Zabinski,The Zookeeper's Wife,a true story based on the international bestseller of the same title.The Zabinski family run a lovingly crafted zoo in Warsaw but political unrest unnerves Jan Zabinski (Johan Heldenbergh)enough to attempt to send his wife and child away.Antonia,naive and endearingly devoted to her animals,won't have it.Then German bombs hit their attraction,killing many animals.Poland surrenders to Germany quickly.Much to the Zabinski's horror they learn that their surviving animals will all be killed for meat to feed soldiers unless they can strike a deal with fellow zookeeper and now Nazi officer (Daniel Brühl,Hollywood's go-to Germanic villain who isn't named Christoph Waltz).

While working on this deal with the devil,Antonina and her husband begin a dangerous game,hiding Jews in their now empty zoo until they can figure out a way to get them out of Poland to (relative) safety in a world gone mad...

Yes No Maybe So: "The Zookeeper's Wife"

No matter how many times we hear the story of World War II and The Holocaust it seems like we're still susceptible to forgetting their lessons.But at least filmmakers and novelists around the world tried to warn us to never forget.In our current climate where hate crimes are skyrocketing and a demagogue prepares to ascend to his throne after blaming our nation's problems on immigrants,how painful is it going to be to watch World War II movies?

Oh look here's another one...
