RETROSPECTIVE: JOHN FORD (running Oct. 16th-Nov. 30th)

"Dedicating this year’s retrospective to John Ford, the Viennale and Austrian Film Museum aim to honor and introduce every phase of his artistic output with a selection of 45 films. In rare productions such as JUST PALS, KENTUCKY PRIDE and BUCKING BROADWAY we can explore the early silent film era, while the expressionistic THE INFORMER and THE PRISONER OF SHARK ISLAND, as well as the little known masterpiece PILGRIMAGE, give us an opportunity to discover the period of early talkies. The classics, that is, highly acclaimed films from the 1940s, including MY DARLING CLEMENTINE, THE GRAPES OF WRATH and HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY, go hand in hand with Ford’s documentaries, created during the Second World War. Cavalry films like FORT APACHE and SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON mark the beginning of a nostalgic review, and THE SUN SHINES BRIGHT, THE SEARCHERS and THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE represent the phase of Ford’s late work. As in previous years, the retrospective will be documented in the form of a book, including new essays, classical texts, and statements by Ford as well as reviews of all the films shown at the retrospective."

Has anybody seen Alexei German’s ‘Hard to be a God’?, I’m very intrigued by it, and even more so considering the lengthy shooting and even longer post-production, not to mention this is German’s first film in 15 years.
Hard to be a God is absolutely splendid, Francisco. Well worth the wait, recommended to be watched in gorgeous blu-ray.
