'This elegantly beautiful supercut
on “the tactile world of Robert Bresson
” by Kogonada
for Criterion shows the great French director’s notoriously precise skill is applied even at the slightest hand gesture. There are no faces in this video yet the drama of these scenes is palpable.'
Dozens of photos of famous photographers with their cameras at the ready. Sometimes the most fascinating subjects are those behind the camera. And look at those cameras, too! (Text in Spanish, occasional nudity.)
In Scenes from an Overrated Career
, film critic Jonathan Rosenbaum
writes a rare New York Times op-ed arguing that the work of recently deceased director Ingmar Bergman
is overvalued compared to Carl Theodor Dreyer
and Robert Bresson
. Both Roger Ebert
and David Bordwell
respond to Rosenbaum's takedown of Bergman, while Rosenbaum writes a brief eulogy blog post
on Bergman. Meanwhile, another blogger discusses how Antonioni and Bergman hated each other
despite recent obits that have paired them together.
