United Kingdom | 1987 | various directors

ARIA film still

Ten of the hottest directors of the 1980s—including Robert Altman, Bruce Beresford, Jean-Luc Godard, Derek Jarman, Franc Roddam, Nicolas Roeg, Ken Russell, and Julien Temple—unleash their unbridled imaginations on ten visualizations of famous opera arias by Verdi, Puccini, Wagner, and others (including “Nessun Dorma”). Often irreverent and over the top, with little spoken dialogue, this anthology film also boasts a cast of notables—from Tilda Swinton and Theresa Russell to John Hurt, Beverly D’Angelo, and Buck Henry. New digital restoration! Adults only! Cleveland revival premiere. 91 min.
