Welcome back for the second week of the Seattle International Film Fest. We last brought you five picks from the kickoff week (some of which might have additional screenings to come). Here are five more movies we recommend that premiere at the festival starting today.
The Third Murder
Screen Anarchy fave Kore-eda Hirokazu brings his latest (before this month's Cannes Palme d'Or winner, that is) to SIFF about a conflicted defense attorney. In his review, Pierce Conran remarked: "Koreeda and cinematographer Mikiya Takimoto have been collaborating for a long time on handsome films, but The Third Murder is shot with unusual crispness, with a series of intriguing tableaus boasting clarity and layered depth in equal measure."
