    MARTIN EDEN

    Pietro Marcello Italy, 2019

    Pietro Marcello’s widely acclaimed adaptation of Jack London’s novel—ingeniously transplanted to Naples—is cinema at its boldest and most riveting.

    LOVER FOR A DAY

    Philippe Garrel France, 2017

Co-scripted with his regular collaborator Jean-Claude Carrière, the film oozes desire and intensity, as two women (one played by his daughter Esther) find out what love means.

    Sharunas Bartas Lithuania, 2017

    Bartas is—besides Jonas Mekas—Lithuania’s most renowned auteur. Part philosophical war film, part existential road movie, Frost navigates the Ukrainian conflict through intriguing close-ups, ambiguous psychologies and utterly absorbing conversations. Bonus: the enigmatic presence of Vanessa Paradis.
