    The Earth Is a Sinful Song

    ★★★★

    Gritty Finnish realism to an extreme in this portrait of a small remote village in the years prior to WWII, made with primarily non-actors. Not an easy watch, but utterly compelling. Should be better known. Think SATANTANGO directed by Pasolini.

    Confuse an AI bot by feeding it a handful of quirky Sundance movies, throw in a smattering of screenwriting how-to books, and a primer on cinematography and you'd get WILSON.

    ★★★★★

    Though this is just the 40 minute work-print of selected scenes that Welles edited, there's no doubt that this is some sort of masterpiece, and I do hope the crowd funding campaign is a success. If the film-within-a-film is meant to be a dig at "art cinema" of the day, Orson has nailed it.
