This was a great documentary. However, there was one unfortunate omission. While Persian cinema was spreading throughout the world, Ali Hatami was re-inventing cinema in Iran. It's unfortunate that he is practically unknown. Also, if I may, couldn't they get a narrator who is slightly more familiar with the Persian language? Listening to her pronounce names was cringe-worthy!
Without fear of hyperbole, I think I can honestly say that this film is one of the greatest works of art ever created.
Please, sir, please make another film. It is impossible to get to one of his plays and besides, I would rather see his works on the screen...they are so imaginative! On another note, where is No?
It needs to be said again: Thank you, Tracy.
My absolute favourite film of all time!
Méliès truly created some of the most entertaining films in the history of cinema. Even to this day, few can match him.
This looks exactly like Kiarostami's contribution to Chacun son Cinema. Is that what's going on? Is this an extended version of that?
Roger Hayn: Elitist, pretentious independent film making! You missed hipster. There was a time when people actually said, "I hate this, because..." Those days are far behind us. Now, people just stick a bunch of words together and hope it makes sense. Oh well!
Where is I Shot Andy Warhol? That is the film that caused this obsession for me.
