The Color of Pomegranates

The Color of Pomegranates ★★★★

In the context of 1968, you had films of Third World resistance like The Battle of Algiers, The Hours of the Furnaces, and The Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach. But you have literally nothing else in the history of cinema that even functions anything like the stylistic conception of The Color of Pomegranates. And all for the better that it's uniqueness is a portrait of resistance.
