The Whistlers

Leading Romanian director Corneliu Porumboiu has made his first all-out genre film—a playful, swift, and elegant neo-noir about an easily corruptible Bucharest police detective who must learn a clandestine, tribal language, improbably made entirely out of whistling.

Directed by Corneliu Porumboiu



Ends Today!

In this wild shape-shifter, a vibrant, richly diverse backcountry Brazilian town finds its sun-dappled day-to-day disturbed when its inhabitants become the targets of a group of armed mercenaries. Bacurau is a vividly angry power-to-the-people fable like no other.

Directed by Kleber Mendonça Filho, Juliano Dornelles
