Les Règles du jeu

It’s possible that, in Renoir’s time, just one rule would have sufficed. Not today. This documentary by Claudine Bories and Patrice Chagnard is the story of three twenty-year-olds who seek to insert themselves in the French labor market. They are not brilliant, by the way, and the world hasn’t prepared them to understand what it m...

Life May Be

With Life May Be, Cousins and Akbari revive a reformulated medium with added poetry, with the combination of language and visual oratory that persuades with its looping cadences and elementary statements of exile, nudity, Iran, existence and affirmative questioning. The film came to fruition after Cousins wrote a letter to Akbari and to his surpris...

Llamas de nitrato

When Anna Karina broke in tears watching The Passion of Joan of Arc (in 1962’s My Life to Live), sixteen years had passed after Maria Falconetti’s death. The parallelisms that can be traced from that scene give us a small hint of the consequences the 1928 classic had on the lives of director Carl Theodor Dreyer and Falconetti herself: i...

Los silencios y las manos

If we were to see one day that some sort of poetry-documentary genre had become the mainstream, we would have to search in Silences and Hands for its main precedent. Director Hernán Khourian makes a portrait of Telma Palavecino, a mystical old lady whose figure captivates us a few minutes into the film. Khourian observes her attentively as s...

Narcisa

Ever since the late Sixties, Narcisa Hirsch elaborated a body of work in Argentina with a wide aesthetic, conceptual, and cinematic range, which very few experimental filmmakers were able to match. She did so at times stretching the relation between the visual and the verbal, at times like a landscape artist hallucinated by pure iconicity, and at o...

National Gallery

There are two constants in Wiseman’s films: the world is organized by institutions –public, private, exciting, repugnant– and, at the same time, said institutions organized by groups of people congregated periodically and interminably in order to keep them afloat (it’s hard to think of a filmmaker with a better eye for recor...

Boys just want to have fun: the plan is to go for a ride, grab a few beers; maybe pick up some girl or getting distracted enough in order to forget other girls, the ones they have or those they want to have. All of this in the same night. Of course, things don’t go as planned. The main characters are two likable troublemakers, armed with the...

Nosotros, ellos y yo

In Camille Claudel, Bruno Dumont placed a tired-faced Juliette Binoche at the center of the frame.
