Pather Panchali

India | 1955 | Satyajit Ray

The late, great Indian filmmaker Satyajit Ray (1921-1992) is one of the undisputed masters of world cinema; he won a special lifetime achievement Oscar in 1992 shortly before his death.

A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence

France, Germany, Norway, Sweden | 2014 | Roy Andersson

Winner of the Golden Lion for Best Film at the 2014 Venice Int’l Film Festival, this mordantly funny comedy from Sweden’s Roy Andersson concludes a trilogy begun with Songs from the Second Floor (2000) and You, the Living (2007). Like those previous masterpieces, Pigeon consists of a series of painterly, fixed-camera tableaux (37 to be exact) in which pasty-faced everymen enact the absurdist, deadpan slapstick of being human. We see salesmen sell, lovers neck, people...

Queen Margot

France, Germany, Italy | 1994 | Patrice Chéreau

The Tales of Hoffmann

United Kingdom | 1951 | Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

To say that Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s film adaptation of Jacques Offenbach’s operetta is their most colorful, lavish, and over-the-top film is saying a lot; this was the team that previously made Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes, and A Matter of Life and Death (aka Stairway to Heaven)! Moira Shearer of The Red Shoes also stars in this bold, sensuous, and sometimes bonkers fusion of music, dance, and cinema that tells three fantastical stories...

Samsara

United States | 2011 | Ron Fricke

Ron Fricke, the cinematographer of Koyaanisqatsi and director of Baraka, returns with another visually stunning, non-verbal movie filmed in remote, exotic locations around the world. Shot on large-format 70mm film in 25 countries and five continents over a period of five years, Samsara (the title is a Sanskrit word that means “the ever-turning wheel of life”) captures sacred rituals, natural wonders, huge industrial complexes, and epic disaster areas in a series of eye-popping, mind-blowing images...
