Reviews of films screened on Saturday in Telluride.

Bleed for This-Miles Teller as a boxer who has a huge comeback. Based on a true story. Sound familiar? Reviews are positive for Miles Teller’s performance, but it’s your typical comeback story. 

Arrival-Alien Sci-fi films don’t usually register with Oscar voters. Arrival is not your typical earth invaders movie with a great performance from Amy Adams.


Toni Erdmann-Mostly positive reviews for this 3 hour German comedy. May get a Best Foreign Language nomination, but the competition might steamroll it.

Sunday’s screenings include Neruda and Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer.
