Welcome to The Last Thing I Saw, with your host Nicolas Rapold. For the final installment in our essential picks from the 2021 Berlin Film Festival, I’m joined by Berlin-based critic Jessica Kiang, who wrote about the festival for The New York Times and filed multiple reviews of highlights for Variety. Movies discussed include The Scary of 61st, from Red Scare podcast co-host Dasha Nekrasova; the Georgian small-scale epic What Do We See When We Look at the Sky?; fresh readings of Alice Diop’s We, the Vietnamese curio Taste, and Alonso Ruizpalacios’s meta-docufiction A Cop Movie; and Petite Maman, Céline Sciamma’s follow-up to Portrait of a Lady on Fire.
