Oscar Predictions For International Feature

“The Zone of Interest” – An intriguing reminder of the complicit realities of human behavior with war, Jonathan Glazer’s Zone of Interest remains a bold, visually artistic achievement that deserves a place at the 2024 Oscar nomination table.

“The Mother of All Lies” – In “The Mother of All Lies, Asmae El Moudir takes us through a homemade set built by her father, of her Casablanca neighborhood where she grew up, through the alleyways and to a world of poignant mystery and family secrets. With El Moudir’s ability to express mood through lighting, choice of optics, and with the graceful participation of her friends and family, the story is tightly sewn together by the narration of her voice. The Mother of All Lies grips the audience with the intensity of her grandmother’s presence, the family’s matriarch, and the unraveling of an unsettling history of the filmmaker’s local community.

“Fallen Leaves” – Aki Kaurismäki finds a way to deliver humor and an honest, deeply satisfying film filled with natural humor and  For cinephiles, “Fallen Leaves” offers beautiful cinematography and an eloquently written script.
