    85. IRAQ selects “The Exam”, a Kurdish-language drama that played at a lot of international festivals. It’s about a woman trying to protect her sister from being coerced into an early marriage by helping her cheat on an exam.

    A strong choice!

    This one is extremely AMPAS friendly indeed! I think it's a very likely shortlist title in fact.

    I saw the director’s last film- “Memories on Stone”- which was submitted by Iraq in 2015. Strong film made under difficult conditions…and difficult to ever forget the tragicomic ending. The director knows how to mix the two very well.

    You can watch “The Exam” here with a VPN:

    Argentina, 1985 starts with a 4.38 and #33 placement on the Letterboxd Top 250. I really didn't expect this.

    I'm not the biggest fan of Argentina, 1985. It's like if Spotlight were a good film . It has all the topics of that kind of films but with good humor (not sure how it works out Argentina/Latam). It's more an important film that one that i can love, but happy being a hit at theatres (even with the boicot of big chains). My cinema (in Chile) was sold out yesterday and after the film a man stood up and shouted: "fascism is still among us, let's be vigilant and don't stop fighting", and the people burst into applause. It was a great moment because we are still depressed for the constitutional referendum.

    I think people overestimate The Quiet Girl' chances. It's too small, modest, quiet, slow, eventless.

    I've seen 19 of the films. Here's how I would break down their chances at making the shortlist:

    * * * * *

    As close to a lock as we have in this category: Close

    Probably In: Decision to Leave, Corsage

    On the Bubble: All Quiet on the Western Front, Utama, Joyland, The Blue Caftan, Holy Spider, Klondike, EO, Victim, Saint Omer, Alcarràs

    Probably Out: Nostalgia, Plan 75, Under the Fig Trees, Domingo and the Mist, Girl Picture, Mars One

    No chance: None of them

    * * * * *

    My favorites of the nineteen I've seen, in order: Close, Girl Picture, Utama, Saint Omer, Corsage

    For now, I'll predict the nominees are: Argentina 1985, Close, Bardo, Decision to Leave, Utama

    Right after I saw the film, I took it out of my predictions altogether, for the very reasons you mention. But with time, it just started to make sense again as the 5th pick. A European Cannes film or Klondike (if it gets a decent distributor) can still take its place, but I'll stick with it for the moment.
