One of my favorite films of all time. Over the years I have come to respect it even more than L’avventura.
One of the masterworks of cinema that rattles me each time I see it. Kieślowski is perhaps the master of filming the unfilmable and unknowable.
Vittorio De Sica
Endlessly inspiring social humanist film. A great location film. The two hands in the end is one of the best shots in cinema.
La dolce vita
Expansive and deeply moving. Haunting.
I can watch the train station sequence over and over again.
The structure is so unique, and the night sequence is a classic. Again, Kurosawa brilliantly translates the Russian writers.
The Exterminating Angel
For some reason my Spanish teacher in eighth grade thought this was an appropriate film to use to teach us Spanish. I was spooked and could not sleep for nights on end. One of my favorite Bunuel films.
