This powerful, haunting work, one of the most technologically advanced movies of its era, was also the first great pacifist film. With a new orchestral score...

Greenaway imagines that this happened while the Battleship Potemkin director was in Mexico during the early 1930s, shooting miles of footage for his never-finished south-of-the-border epic ¡Que Viva México!

Eisenstein Double Feature

THUNDER OVER MEXICO & TIME IN THE SUN

United States | 1933/1940 | Sol Lesser/Marie Seton

The great Soviet director Sergei Eisenstein (Battleship Potemkin) spent most of 1931 in North America shooting an epic, six-part portrait of the history and culture of Mexico. The film’s title was going to be ¡Que Viva México! (See previous blurb.) But with 50 hours of footage in the can, the film’s backer, American socialist and novelist Upton Sinclair, pulled the plug on the project for being over budget and behind schedule. Eisenstein returned to Russia,...

Mexico | 2015 | Arturo Ripstein

Mexico/Spain, 2015, Arturo Ripstein A tragic confrontation between two mask-wearing, midget Mexican wrestlers and two aging Mexico City prostitutes is delineated in the new film by master filmmaker Arturo Ripstein (Deep Crimson). Inspired by a 2009 case, this gritty, lurid, but compassionate drama (shot in gorgeous b&w) proves worthy of Ripstein’s mentor, the great Spanish surrealist Luis Buñuel. It’s also a bit Felliniesque.
