  • L'Avventura



    “Words are becoming less and less necessary; they create misunderstandings.”

    A wealthy listless young woman disappears during a boat trip around the rocky Mediterranean islands off Sicily. She is never heard from again; it is almost like she never existed at all. Her disaffected lover Sandro and best friend Claudia spend months trying to find her, but their relationship slowly devolves into a love affair fraught with guilt and tension.

    Michelangelo Antonioni’s enigmatic L’Avventura premiered at Cannes in 1960 to…

    “Are you lonesome tonight?”

    Paris, Texas


    “I wanted to see him so bad that I didn't even dare imagine him anymore.”

    Seemingly birthed from the dust that surrounds him, a man wordlessly emerges from the desert, trudging towards an invisible horizon, his face weary and withered, his memory elusive, his soul haunted by regret and sorrow.

    Wim Wenders' Paris, Texas is a melancholic portrait of a broken man yearning for reconnection with a family whom he had left years ago. But much more so, the film…

  • Naked



    “You think you can recapture your youth by fucking it. You don't wanna fuck me. You'll catch something cruel.”

    Mike Leigh’s Naked is a riveting parable brimming with a scornful wit and humanity unseen through initial viewing. The film chronicles the exploits of the sardonic and nihilistic vagabond, Johnny, a man who is first introduced as he brutally rapes a young woman in a back alleyway. Fearing the repercussions of his actions, Johnny flees to the streets of London. There,…
