Sinopsis

A stunning visual and serious music treat (Variety), Derek Jarman s (Sebastiane, Jubilee) 1989 War Requiem reunites British cinema s enfant terrible with his muse Tilda Swinton (2008 Oscar Winner for Michael Clayton) for a spectacular and moving interpretation of composer Benjamin Britten s groundbreaking 1961 orchestral masterpiece. Just as Britten combined the sacred Latin Requiem Mass with the searing unromantic war poetry of British infantry lieutenant Wilfred Owen, who was tragically killed in the final week of WWI, Jarman interprets Britten s six movements in eye-popping and heartbreaking dialogue-free tableaus illustrating war s infinite futility, sacrifice, and waste. War Requiem boldly combines archival footage of war s devastation with Jarman s keen and gifted eye for both the theatrical and the political as Owen, played by Nathaniel Parker, doggedly struggles to survive on the field of battle in defense of a cause rendered unjust by the human toll it takes in the trenches and on the home front. Featuring Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, National Treasure) as Owen s star-crossed German counterpart, and Sir Laurence Olivier in his final screen appearance, War Requiem is a violent, horrifying, ultimately inspiring film that remains Derek Jarman s definitive, eloquent, complex, and profoundly negative statement on war.

    Durante años, las películas de Derek Jarman circularon entre pocos enterados, los miembros de una fiel comunidad de afines. Queer antes de que queer fuera un rótulo de moda, su militancia contra la avanzada thatcherista y en favor de los derechos de la diversidad sexual, hacían de su cine un plato difícil de digerir para el gran público pero también para la crítica, muchas vece...

It was Vertov's first full-length film, and he used all the cinematic techniques at his disposal - dissolves, split screen, slow motion and freeze-frames - to produce a work that is exhila...

    Understand is a meditation on memory, identity, and the reconciliation that follows a French businessman s growing obsession with the secrets of his family s past. Suffused with a quiet glow of sympathy and enlightenment (The New York Times), the film is a diligently understated exploration of the legacy of anti-Semitism (Time Out New York). As the 1987 trial of Nazi war crimin...
