    This week, for our free festival on Hulu, we’re highlighting a selection of cinema celebrations of architectural delights. The structures on display range from the midcentury-modern homes of Paris’s suburbs to the towering beauty of Rome’s EUR district, as seen in: William Cameron Menzies’s Things to Come, Jules Dassin’s The Naked City, Roberto Rossellini’s Journey to Italy, Jacques Tati’s Mon oncle, Michelangelo Antonioni’s L’eclisse, Francesco Rosi’s Hands over the City, and Jacques Tati’s PlayTime.

    In addition to these seven visually stunning titles, we’re pleased to share avant-garde Japanese director Hiroshi Teshigahara’s 1984 documentary Antonio Gaudí. Here, Teshigahara focuses his lens on the Catalan architect’s breathtaking work, rendering a fascinating and poetic exploration of Gaudí’s buildings, parks, cathedrals—in particular his posthumous masterpiece-in-progress, Barcelona’s Sagrada Família cathedral. You can watch the entrancing documentary below or at Hulu, and remember, if you subscribe to Hulu for just $7.99 a month, you can see more than 900 Criterion films commercial-free, anytime.
