Persona

June 28 – Persona, 1966

For its evident contemplation of a singular phenomenon of transfer of personality . . . [Persona] is rich in poetic intimations of subconscious longings and despairs, and it is likely to move one more deeply as poetry than as thought.
Bosley Crowther, New York Times, March 7, 1967

July 5 – The Gleaners and I (Les glaneurs et la glaneuse), 2000

Agnes Varda of course is a gleaner herself. She is gleaning the gleaners. And in what appears to be a documentary she conceals a tender meditation about her own life, and life itself. 
Roger Ebert

La Jetée

Jul 12, 2016 - Jul 12, 2016

July 12 – La Jetée, 1962

La Jetée – a film made of photographs . . . but also made up of whispers, of heartbeats, of the roars of airplane – feels primitive to the eye and the ear even though it tells of the future. It is a time-travel story yet no movie is so frozen in time. It feels like a film in mourning for film, in memorial to itself.  
Michael Koresky, Echo Chamber: Listening to La Jetée

July 26 – Notfilm, 2015

I am lost in admiration for this work . . . the film is ambitious, thrilling and illuminating. It represents an invaluable addition to Beckett scholarship. NOTFILM is a superb film.
