How can you go wrong when a film is handcrafted by a master of the cinematic arts? The films here are all created by world-class talents who have painstakingly studied their profession, learned from past failures and gone from strength to strength in careers that now stand as inspirational. These are the best of the best. These are the filmmakers who are always part of the awards season conversation, constantly collecting prizes from the finest film festivals in the world, and sometimes so admired that their very names have become an adjective. Outstanding CineMasters titles this year range from François Ozon’s heartrending period drama Frantz and Paul Verhoeven’s spectacular return to the limelight with the Oscar-tipped Elle to Lav Diaz’s Venice Golden Lion winner The Woman Who Left. Be the first in line to catch some of 2017’s must-see movies.
