The best films to compete in the 2021 Oscar Awards
Crip Camp – James Lebrecht and Nicole Newnham
Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, who made a speech in the cinema world as the producers of the American Factory, which won the Audience Award in the USA-Documentary section of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, where it made its world premiere, and won the Best Documentary Oscar, Produced by Crip Camp, it houses a devastated summer camp for young people with disabilities located near Woodstock. A group of disabled young people, encouraged by this groundbreaking summer camp, also helps to create a movement that will open the doors of a more equal world. Directed by Emmy Award-winning Nicole Newnham and movie mixer and former camper Jim LeBrecht, this documentary was aired on Netflix on March 25th, and was welcomed by critics and viewers.
Swallow – Carlo Mirabella-Davis
Swallow, with Carlo Mirabella-Davis’s first feature and featured by Haley Bennett’s performance, focuses on Hunter in the first months of her pregnancy. Hunter realizes that the desire to swallow dangerous objects is increasing and unable to resist. On the one hand, he tries to confront the growing control and pressure of his wife and family, while on the other he tries to reveal the dark secret behind his obsession with their support.
The hallmark of the film, which tells the pressures of the modern world from a woman’s point of view, is a very good account of the psychological crisis experienced by the main character. In fact, the film, which has a potential to enter the mined area with its subject, pushes it backwards and focuses only on the psychology of the main character. In this respect, the film gives the right to the psychological thriller type.
Never Rarely Sometimes Always – Eliza Hittman
Eliza Hittman’s latest movie Never Rarely Sometimes Always, which has achieved a considerable success with her first two feature films, It Felt Like Love and Beach Rats, is one of the favorites of this year’s favorite season.
The film, which is known for the successful performances of Sidney Flanigan and Talia Ryder, tells the story of two young girls who traveled from Pennsylvania to New York City in order to have an abortion after an unexpected pregnancy. Young girls who have to come to New York because abortion is prohibited in the state they live in, traces of the same oppressive system in New York, which is thought to be a much more liberal city.
The film effectively describes the experiences of women who are exposed to the oppressive system, wherever they are in the world. Let’s add to the words that the scene that gives its name to the film is already among the unforgettable.
The Assistant – Kitty Green
The Assistant, the first fiction film of Kitty Green, which previously starred in award-winning documentaries such as Ukraine Is Not a Brothel and Casting JonBenet, featuring Emmy Award winning Emmy for the Ozark series, attracts attention with its subject that parallels the spirit of the time.
Julia Garner gives life to a young woman named Rose, who has to deal with the condescending attitudes of her male colleagues and boss at her workplace, which she enters with great hope after graduating in the film. As Rose gradually begins to realize that being a reliable person over time does not have much value in today’s capitalist order, she realizes that the system is even more corrupt than she had guessed as a result of the facts she discovered about the filmmaker she worked with.
The movie, which made its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival last year, was also featured in the Spotlight section of the Sundance Film Festival, which was previously featured at a festival.
The Invisible Man – Leigh Whannell
Leigh Whannell, one of the creators of the Saw series, who was known for his screenwriter and actor identity, after shooting his first feature with Insidious: Chapter 3, was talked with The Invisible Man, which he shot this year. The Invisible Man, which is a horror movie that suits the spirit of the time and stands out especially with its visual effects, entered the vision at a time when the women’s movement was rising in Hollywood and formed a parallel with the events in Hollywood.
Elisabeth Moss plays Cecilia, who constantly escapes from her husband Adrian, who constantly manipulates her and shapes her life according to her own wishes. Taking important steps to spruce up her life, Cecilia encounters some inexplicable events after she learns that Adrian has committed suicide and begins to question whether Adrian is really dead. Cecilia, who says that she is constantly disturbed by an invisible being, is unable to persuade her people to make her voice heard, as Adrian is sure that she is not dead. Many people around him even think that Cecilia is not healthy. We, as the audience, witness this psychological situation closely.
