King Crimson is a band that people literally are dying to be in. In the Court of the Crimson King is a dark, comic film for anyone who wonders whether it is worth sacrificing everything for just a single moment of transcendence. For over 50 years Robert Fripp, also famous for his work with David Bowie and Brian Eno, has overseen a unique creative environment in which freedom and responsibility conspire to place extraordinary demands on the band's members -- only alleviated by the applause of an audience whose adoration threatens to make their lives even harder. It's a rewarding and perilous space in which the extraordinary is possible, nothing is certain, and not everyone survives intact. What began as a straightforward documentary about the cult rock band King Crimson as it turned 50, mutated into an exploration of time, death, family, and the transcendent power of music to change lives. But with jokes.
In Japan, a man takes a job as a janitor at a mental asylum in order to be near his wife. Although his wife suffers genuine mental anguish, the man believes he can rescue her, but his attempt to break her out one night backfires when she panics. After she returns to her room, the husband again makes plans to try to take her out, only to be interrupted in the attempt by a doctor and several attendants, whom he attacks and believes he has killed.
So one thing from another rises ever; And in fee-simple life is given to none, But unto all mere usufruct." With these verses from Lucretius' De rerum natura opens The Blue Planet, a masterpiece by the Brescian director Franco Piavoli. It, too, is a poem, but one woven with images and sounds rather than words (knowingly excluded from the narration), which unfolds on three planes, three intertwined threads that weave a symphony reproducing the buzz of life itself. On the bottom, outlined with light touches, biological existence: light, water, plants, animals, men. Then the succession of nights and days, the passing of the seasons. Finally, naked and moving, dear and at the same time alien, the life of women and men: games, laughter, love, work, rest, cohabitation, aggressiveness. The eye-camera of Piavoli, with the detachment of love, collects everything and understands – identical and immortal – in the time of its filming, which is an hour or a year, a season, all the time in the world.

Divided into two chapters, director Bogdan George Apetri's MIRACLE begins with the young, beautiful Cristina Tofan (Ioana Bugarin) sneaking away from an isolated convent. Working in the style of the Romanian New Wave, Apetri withholds key information about her motives as we follow her enigmatic journey, allowing tension to steadily build to a wavering precipice. The film's second part follows Marius Preda (Emanuel Pârvu), a determined inspector retracing Cristina's steps days after her departure. Here, the narrative opens into both gripping police thriller and devastating social commentary, as Marius gradually uncovers clues and revelations leading not only to the unfathomable truth behind Cristina's mysterious actions, but possibly, to an actual miracle as well.
In the corridors of the criminal police, it is said that all the investigators have a crime that haunts them. One day or another, they come across a case hurting them more than the others, without always knowing why. It starts spinning in their heads to the point of obsession. Young and ambitious Captain Vivés has just been appointed group leader at the Grenoble Criminal Squad when Clara's murder case lands on his desk. Vivés and his team investigate Clara's complex life and relations, but what starts as a professional and methodical immersion into the victim's life soon turns into a haunting obsession.
Along a polluted waterway near Shanghai, Mardar (Jia Hongsheng) rides his motorcycle each day, transporting Moudan (Zhou Xun), the teenage daughter of a local criminal. Despite his secret love for the young girl, he gets caught up in a scheme to kidnap her and hold her for ransom. The plan goes awry, however, and Moudan throws herself into the river and drowns. Mardar emerges from prison years later and encounters a nightclub entertainer who looks exactly like his lost love. A strong but gentle film about identity, neediness, and desire, as well as our ability to re-invent the world to suit ourselves.

Taeko and her husband, Jiro, are living a peaceful existence with son, Keita. An accident brings the boy's father, Park, back into her life. An enormously poignant melodrama told at the volume of a broken whisper. 
Il mese di novembre segna 25 anni esatti di presenza e attività continuativa del Cine Detour nel rione Monti, prima nel leggendario covo “clandestino” al civico 47 della via, poi in un’originale coabitazione con la bottega equosolidale, infine nella saletta amichevole e accogliente che molte e molti di voi hanno bazzicato negli ultimi anni. In questo tempo abbiamo alimentato l’immaginario di due o tre generazioni di spettatrici e spettatori e riempito un vuoto di proposta culturale nel centro cittadino, proponendo cinema indipendente di qualità in lingua originale, festival, arti visive, musica dal vivo, teatro, formazione ai linguaggi audiovisivi, didattica del cinema a tanto tanto altro ancora. Lo abbiamo fatto sempre a modo nostro, con passione, creatività e spirito di condivisione, sempre senza spocchia ma fieri della nostra indipendenza, senza tappeti rossi e celebrità da ostentare, ma con tante vere amiche e veri amici che ci hanno dimostrato la loro stima nel corso degli anni.  A chi tra voi ci accompagna con più assiduità l’annuncio della prossima chiusura potrà non giungere inaspettato. Ad aprire la breccia, come immaginerete, più di un anno e mezzo di emergenza covid, con ripercussioni disastrose sulle disponibilità finanziarie già limitate dell’associazione.

Well-known attorney Shigemori takes on the defense of murder-robbery suspect Misumi, who served jail time for another murder 30 years ago. Shigemori's chances of winning the case seem low, as his client freely admits his guilt, even though he faces the death penalty if convicted. But as he digs deeper into the case, hearing the testimonies of the victim's family and Misumi himself, Shigemori begins to doubt whether his client is actually the murderer.

The Nose or the Conspiracy of Mavericks is a sprawling but carefully controlled artistic study on the role of the artist, the audience and (as always) the nature of the oppression itself. It circumscribes the times and the rise of the Russian Avant-garde scene, the Soviet Regime up to the Stalinist purges of intellectuals The film is based on the two greatest creations of the Russian genius: A short story, "The Nose" by Nikolai Gogol, and an opera, “The Nose” that composer Dmitri Shostakovich made Gogol’s novel into in 1930.The film is dedicated to pioneers, innovators in art. People who are ahead of their time. And, most importantly, who have no fear to go against the tide. At the cost of personal well-being, and often life.The main characters of the film are writers Nikolai Gogol and Mikhail Bulgakov, director Vsevolod Meyerhold and composer Dmitry Shostakovich.

The metropolitan area of Naples is one of the most densely populated on the planet and lies between Vesuvius and Campi Flegrei, two of the most dangerous active volcanoes in the world. Over a million people live in the so-called red zone, ready to be evacuated at the first sign of an eruption. Perhaps. The film relates the stories of those who live there on this "time bomb" and who, despite the danger, are linked to this land of fire, to the traditions and superstitions on the black mountain, Vesuvius, which overlooks the city, as if was the true and only master.
