eleven favorite Dreyer Films by Dale Wittig

I still have not seen Love One Another, but I have seen Once Upon a Time, and add it to the list well above the Bride of Glomdal, which i don’t want to remove from the list. I have seen Dreyer’s first film, the President, and the much later, and thoroughly compromised, Two People, which I think Dreyer had good reason to more or less disown. Once Upon a Time was a surprise on many levels, not least in its remarkable beauty. The selection of particular objects for symbolic and metaphoric purposes was something I already admired in his work but here it struck me as particularly pronounced.
