There actually is a pigeon here, in the beginning: a stuffed one, therewith past wondering; some zombie-like-looking human gawks at it in seemingly dull incomprehension. The film’s anti-heroes, a pair of salesmen specialized in fun novelties like vampire teeth (with extra-long fangs!) are met...

The Piano Teacher’s study in lurid sexual pathology occasions a tour de force by Isabelle Huppert as the title character –a four-alarm lunatic with a heart consecrated to Schubert and a head churning up fantasies to make Leopold Sacher-Masoch blush. There’s hardly another actress i...

The Argentine coast has some characteristics that are hard to translate: tourist attractions, the everyday pace, the personality of its inhabitants and urban identity. Lucía Ferreyra’s first film, a feature based on a short, traces line after line the skeleton of one of those coastal to...

In this film of eccentric beauty and wild feeling, printed words sometimes fill the screen, almost obliterating the puny creatures struggling beneath the type. Based on Joseph Conrad’s very dry, very vicious long short story, ‘The Return,’ the film concerns a man who, having marrie...

One of the lesser known films of Murnau: It’s a men’s world, but –as often– with a femme fatale in its center; a melodrama of guilt and treason unfolds itself in flashbacks. All is atmosphere: Like in a gothic tale, the stormy weather mirrors the emotional state of people; th...
