Man with a Movie Camera
One of the most and powerful silent films. Innovative and ahead of its time.
La Règle du jeu
The art of mixing life and representation, highly expressive.
Journey to Italy
The film that opened up the space of the aesthetics of modernity.
One of the most beautiful American dark comedies in the Lubitsch tradition
The purification of genre narrative beyond the simple scheme of the western
The classical style at the extreme of narrative complexity
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
Film-summa: awareness and nostalgia for the universe recreated in the past both by the western and in Ford's work.
Pierrot le fou
Imagination, creative freedom and authentic renewal of the expressive language of cinema
The search for meaning beyond the limits of representation and the possibilities of the film image.
Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles
A considerable part of the best cinema of the last 40 years is contained and summarised in this film by Akerman
Many deserving films had to be left out. A shame!
