The Last Stop in Yuma County

This event has passed

It’s the last gas for 200 miles. Except this morning, the fuel truck hasn’t shown up, so there’s no gas at all. Half a dozen travellers have no choice but to wait it out in the diner next door: a salesman (Jim Cummings), an elderly couple on vacation, a local who likes to shoot the shit with the waitress (Jocelin Donahue) even though she’s married to the local sheriff… and two bank robbers just itching to get the hell out of Yuma. Francis Galluppi’s sun-baked neo-noir harks back to Reservoir Dogs and Red Rock West: it’s clammy (the air-con is out), mean, and it takes no prisoners.

The Last Stop In Yuma County tells a simple story but does so in an extraordinary way. It’s a film you won’t forget for a long, long time.

Evil Does Not Exist

After the international success of Drive My Car, Ryûsuke Hamaguchi quietly made this small-scale independent film, a work of simplicity and grace about a rural community and the developers who want to built a "glamping" retreat in the woods.

La Chimera

Rohrwacher's first feature since Happy As Lazzaro is an exhilaratingly wild, mysterious, rough and tumble tale of a disheveled English tomb raider (Josh O'Connor) living with a roisterous group of Italian bohemians: singers, smugglers and petty thieves.
