    Movies coming in 2022


    Happy New Year! As 2022 begins we start to wonder what the movies will be like. David Hudson, Criterion's writer, has a long piece about works completed or in progress, "The Most-Anticipated Films of 2022" in THE DAILY—DEC 30, 2021. Here are just a couple of paragraphs:
    On Fire

    Back in February, Claire Denis wrapped production on Fire, and she’s already begun shooting The Stars at Noon, based on Denis Johnson’s 1986 novel, in Panama with Joe Alwyn and Margaret Qualley. So we should be hearing about the premiere of Fire any time now. Juliette Binoche plays Sara, a woman caught between two men, Jean (Vincent Lindon)—they’ve been together for ten years—and François (Grégoire Colin), his best friend and her former lover. The cast also features Mati Diop and Bulle Ogier.
    Period Pieces

    Lisandro Alonso’s Eureka will be a story told in four parts, taking us from a small town on the border between Mexico and the U.S. in 1870 to a present-day Native American reservation in South Dakota and ultimately an indigenous settlement in the Amazon. “Though it begins in 1870, Eureka is really a present-tense affair, capturing the tragedy of modernity, a sense of disconnect with nature, and an ancestral past in a world alienated by its pursuit of wealth,” says Alonso. His cast includes Viggo Mortensen, Viilbjørk Malling Agger, Rafi Pitts, Maria de Medeiros, and Chiara Mastroianni.
    Artists at Work

    In Kelly Reichardt’s Showing Up, Michelle Williams plays Lizzie, an artist juggling family and friends as she prepares for a potentially career-defining exhibition. Lizzie channels the energy of the chaos in her life into her art. The cast includes frequent Reichardt collaborator Larry Fessenden as well as John Magaro (First Cow), Judd Hirsch, Maryann Plunkett, Heather Lawless, Amanda Plummer, James Le Gros, André Benjamin, and Hong Chau.

    Cate Blanchett will play Lydia Tár, the first female chief conductor of a major German orchestra, in Tár, the first feature from Todd Field since Little Children (2006). The score will be composed by Hildur Guðnadóttir, the cast includes Nina Hoss, Noémie Merlant, and Mark Strong, and Focus Features has set a release date: October 7.
    There are lots more descriptions of fascinating or odd or mindblowing new films and I urge you to read the whole piece by Hudson, which is mostly American films but includes ones in other languages as well, including French, Korean, Spanish, and German.
