Overlooked movies from 2021

Don’t miss out on these films!

The year is coming to a close, which means it is time to look back on the movies you liked and dislike the most. It is also a chance to remind people there were a lot of films out there they may flew under the radar. Here are the best overlooked movies of the past year.

Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn

Listen to the latest episode of the AIPT Movies Podcast!

If a movie is going to start with an unsimulated sex scene that runs the gamut from plain old dirty talk to full on penetration, then it better bring the goods. The Romanian film is filled with social commentary and laugh out loud moments and quickly proves it is not just another sex comedy. Witty, sincere, and yes, shocking, it will you wondering what you just watched.

Benedetta

Sexually graphic and filled with ridiculous imagery (if the sight of Jesus fighting with a sword does not make you laugh, the closing monologue delivered by a character who is completely nude may do the trick), Benedetta is constantly eye catching. The movie is more than just a visual spectacle, however. Its story about religious mania is a poignant one.

Plan B

Possibly the funniest movie of the year, Plan B is a coming of age story that shows how far the genre has progressed. The over the top gross out humor is still there, but director Natalie Morales has also put together a topical story that speaks to today’s generation. The rare mix of nostalgic and important.

Summer of Soul (or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)

Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson’s directorial debut is a powerful one that looks back at 1969’s Harlem Cultural Festival. Filled with emotion and moving interviews, the documentary successfully takes audiences back to a different time. Part concert film, the fantastic soundtrack is the perfect score as the film examines the culture of the era.

Surge

Surge may be the most tension filled movie of the year. It has little dialogue and a thin plot, but remains captivating the entire time. Ben Whishaw’s performance is amazing while the writing never lets up in this slice of life storytelling. A delicate look at mental illness that is frightening and engrossing.

The Last Duel

Putting Ridley Scott at the helm of a movie starring Matt Damon, Adam Driver, and Jodi Comer will probably lead to good things. Add in Ben Affleck giving one of the finest performances of his career and you have one of the most can’t miss movies of the year. The film includes great action and an engaging mystery.

Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched

This documentary is an easy sell for fans of folk horror, but that does not mean non-fans cannot enjoy it. If you are someone who has wanted to give folk horror a try but did not know where to start, this documentary is a great jumping off point. Director Kier-La Janisse how shows how changes in the world are reflected in folk horror. An eye opening documentary.
