Essential Reading

A. O. Scott and Manohla Dargis’ article on recent contemplative cinema, whose long tradition in the history of cinema dates back to the Lumiere’s first projected image of a train arriving at the Lyon station, is perhaps the most important cinema article written in a daily paper this year. If you missed it this weekend, here it is again. Two of the films mentioned are screening at NWFF in the next couple of weeks; Apichatpong’s UNCLE BOONMEE and Godard’s FILM SOCIALISME, but you could easily include the films of Nicolas Pereda, A USEFUL LIFE, and PUTTY HILL in this list, also screening this summer. And at the Seattle International Film Festival this week, the magnificent ETERNITY.
