    Through a Glass Darkly

    Another Bergman great. A young woman's re-descent into madness amid complicated inter-relationships in her family. As usual, Bergman explores religious themes as a part of dysfunction.

  • Eternity and a Day

    Eternity and a Day

    Eternity and a Day open a new road for understanding the world, life, death, love poetry and child innocence. Connections are possible across age, country, culture gaps. The images are gorgeous, the slowness fits. 
    Most of the film's power is visual and aural. It is truly a sensual experience, along the lines of a Tarkovsky film.

    Where Is My Friend's House?

    "Where is the Friend's Home?" offers an insight into the simplistic and innocent world of childhood. Adults do not really see and appreciate that world. An accessible work with a warm and thoughtful, observant piece of neorealism. I still enjoyed the central theme of friendship and the tour around some aspects of Iranian life.

  • Woman in the Dunes

    Woman in the Dunes

    Woman in the dunes is a disturbing, creepy, stylish and sexy film. The storyline is an outstanding examination of human life exposed to inhospitable conditions, man's relation to its environment and society and how we find meaning in our lives, whether through personal achievement, or love. It moves incredibly slowly through the flawless Cinematography.
