La passion de Jeanne d'Arc

Carl Theodor Dreyer Frankrike, 1928

Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Passion of Joan of Arc

A religious experience, and not just in a good way. Personally I was always bored in church—and there's no more point in complaining that there are too many close-ups of Falconetti than that a church service has too many hymns. You either believe or don't, and I believe in the power of close ups, of angelic faces contrasted with bestial ones, and of the kineticism of a final montage. A, yes, passionate masterpiece.
