Consensus Comparison: Jauja, Amour fou March 21, 2015

There are many new releases below worth getting excited about. Jauja, Amour fou, Kumiko and La sapienza are your four films of the week. And Accidental Love might be the lowest-scoring new release CRU has ever covered, averaging out to only 18. As far as I know, the previous record-holder was last year’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at 22.
