    ★★★★★

    Sátántangó (1994) written by László Krasznahorkai and based on his book of the same name from 1985.

    Few films reach the level of craftsmanship as Sátántangó. Béla Tarr achieved in making a seven-and-a-half-hour-long film that never decrease in quality or consistency.

    Sátántangó is without a doubt one of the primer examples of films capturing life. Sátántangó is an experience, is a film you can smell and feel. It's bathed in texture and impressions at every turn. 

    Even the sheer length of this behemoth…

    Persona

    ★★★★★

    Persona (1966) is one of the greatest pieces of film art ever made and my all-time favourite film. 

    Persona is Ingmar Bergman's highest artistic achievement and that says a lot, for Bergman, is the man who gave the world such masterpieces as Det Sjunde Inseglet (1957), Smultronstället (1957), Viskningar och rop (1972), Fanny och Alexander (1982) among many others.

    The opening sequence of Persona is a work of art in and of itself; surreal, energetic, and mysterious. The whole of the movie is contained…

    "He who jumps into the void owes no explanation to those who stand and watch." — Jean-Luc Godard

    By whatever means necessary Godard gets his message across. Be it: text broken up and dissected by a semantic scalpel, graphics of Warholian style, music or the lack thereof, unorthodox camera-movements, or extreme editing. 

    He uses the camera like a pen, with light he writes his essays, critiques, and philosophies.
    Forever engrained in the minds of millions are the images and words…

    Umberto D.

    ★★★★★

    Vittorio De Sica’s sentimental tale of an elderly man who struggles to get by in his old age. Umberto D. (1952) is a depiction of man's struggle against circumstance.

    As with his masterpiece Ladri di biciclette (1948), De Sica once again depicts a general phenomenon through a specific case, for within the particular is contained the universal.

    Love all God’s creation, both the whole and every grain of sand. Love every leaf, every ray of light. Love the animals, love…

    Сталкер (Stalker) is probably Andrei Tarkovsky’s most popular work. More accessible than Зеркало (1975) but more abstract than Иваново детство (1962).

    Сталкер explores themes of faith, meaning, art, and the relation between people. With Сталкер, Tarkovsky makes what’s essentially a science fiction film, but Сталкер is more than that. Сталкер is an existential piece of art. 

    Сталкер is a meditative experience. Long sequences, monologues, ambient sounds, and music... sequences of dreams and memories gliding slowly through time. 

    In Сталкер nature has…

    Clocks without hands, time standing still,
    trapped alone, the mind falling ill.
    Cold clammy hands, Death reaching for you,
    no way out, no chance to undo.

    Victor Sjöström's last great role and a love letter from Ingmar Bergman who has cited Sjöström as being one of his biggest influences. Sjöström's most well-known film probably is Körkarlen (1921) of which Bergman also has declared his favorite film. 

    Isak Borg (Victor Sjöstrom) who used to be a respected doctor has now become…
