“Such, in its strange, timeless beauty, is the declaration of Godard’s film. ‘Everything’s all right’ is a statement whose creative force can be gauged by the fact that, in real life, it seems clear that everything is going to hell in a handbasket.

“You have to know that there are no whites, no mulattos, no blacks. There’s only the poor and the rich. The rich are the enemies of the poor and they make sure they stay poor.”

Th[e] introductory intertitle, […] allows us to read in Sunrise (1927), far more than its inconsistent “philosophical” pretext, its major signifying articulations – namely, an in order of appearance: dramatis personae, but not characters in the traditional sense (the absence of names reduces the introduction of individuals to pure roles, networks of functions and attributes); time, but not history (the narrative refuses any relation to a real chronology, any temporality beyond the segmentation on which it is founded: the times of day); places, but not geography (purely fictive locations, referring to no extra-filmic reality); and finally the film’s tones, the curious “mix of genres” it produces.

“In 1560, not quite twenty years after the death of Francisco Pizarro, who had conquered Peru for Spain, an elaborately provisioned party of conquistadores set out from Quito to find the land of El Dorado. It was a fearful journey first to cross the Andes but even worse on the other side.

The Canterbury Tales
Pier Paolo Pasolini, 1972, 111’

“Despite all the writings, and they are voluminous, by Pasolini and about Pasolini, there is little reference to the fact that his work is an outstanding example of artistic Modernism. Perhaps the silence is due to his fierce dislike and rejection of Modern society.

FILM
Days of ’36
Theodoros Angelopoulos, 1972, 105’

“More than Reconstruction, Angelopoulos’s direct indictment of the Junta came in 1972 with his film Days of ’36 [Meres tou ’36].

FILM
Chantal Akerman, 1972, 65’

“In the second of her 1972 experiments, Akerman again wanted to draw viewers’ eyes to elements in the frame that they might not otherwise have considered. Similarly focused on architecture and interior spaces, Hotel Mônterey is grander in scope than La chambre.
