    'Booksmart'



    It’s an obvious comparison since Beanie Feldstein is Jonah Hill's little sister, but Booksmart really is Superbad for girls. It's a stylized, one-liner marathon of vulgar teenage emotions with two potential star-making lead performances from Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever. It's also directed by Olivia Wilde, who shows incredible chops for comedic filmmaking. The splicing and dicing of close-ups, song selections, and slow-motion only fuels the awkward madness happening onscreen. Molly (Feldstein) and Amy (Dever) are unpopular besties on the verge of graduation who realize they wasted all their time studying. The performances make it happen. Feldstein and Dever play off each other beautifully, and the film manages to be just as sweet as it is trashy and hilarious. The stop-motion sequence is one of the funniest drug trip scenes ever made. Booksmart is one of the best comedies of the year.

    'High Life'



    The first English-language feature from French auteur Claire Denis and her writing partner Jean-Pol Fargeau is a surprising space thriller that unfolds through time and space amongst Denis's deft touch for colossal imagery. It's thrilling to see her create science-fiction, and upend expectations at every turn. The plot remains sensual, however, the director's signature. Robert Pattinson is the center of the film as the lone survivor of a space mission gone very wrong. He exists in the void with a baby girl and Denis tells their story while flashing back to the nightmare scenario that left them alone. It's at once horrifying and hopeful. Denis's vision is just as full of wonder and awe as 2001: A Space Odyssey.
