Theo Angelopoulos Ranked

The world of Angelopoulos is slow, meditative, and melancholic; they're like beautiful, lucid paintings of Greek History. His films unfold in deliciously contemplative paces through slow, sweeping pans, tracking shots, and long takes. Often the 360-degree rule is utilized in an Angelopoulos shot, capturing the rain-lashed, bleak, cold, misty, and often underbelly of North Greece. In the world of Angelopoulos, perfection is key.

Still waiting to see The Dust of Time, his very last film before his tragic death in 2012.
