Reviews for ‘Mali Blues’

mali-blues-poster-1NYT Critics Pick NYT Critic’s Pick! “Despite the urgency of the situation the musicians face, when they’re not doing their work, the movie is quiet, observant, taking in the austere beauty of the land and the people.” – Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

“First-time feature director Gregor never imposes a narrative arc on his subjects; instead, we meet them, hear their hopes and their fears, and then savor performances of singular beauty, power, and invention.” – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice

“Compelling! Mali Blues artfully combines hypnotic music with definite social concerns. The emotion is strong, the music joyous.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

Reviews for ‘Funeral Parade of Roses’

funeral-parade-of-roses-poster-1-small“Describing this transgressive take on Oedipus Rex purely in terms of plot would be as limiting as calling the King of Thebes slightly confused.” – Michael Nordine, Indiewire

“It imparts the thrill of witnessing the hedonism and lawlessness—both sexual and artistic—of a bygone culture. You also feel an almost tragic surge of melancholia watching it: where and when, you wonder, will cinema ever get quite this wild again?” – Jonathan Romney, Film Comment

“As a cinematic and cultural document this is fascinating material, definitely worth your time.” – Bradley Gibson, Film Threat

“Matsumoto mashes a barrage of audio-visual styles, tones and gimmicks into a brash kaleidoscope of filmic possibility.” – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times

Brattle Film Notes: ‘The Night of the Hunter’ and the Fear of Christian Antipathy

Reviews for ‘Endless Poetry’

endless-poetry-poster-1-small★★★★ “There is probably more visual genius in these two films than most filmmakers have come up with in an entire career.” – Peter Keough, Boston Globe

Grade: A “Jodorowsky contemplates mortality with as much power and insight as perhaps anyone before him.” – James Verniere, Boston Herald

“Loopy, irreverent, and more intensely personal than anything its mystic creator has invented before.” – Aaron Hillis, The Village Voice

“Mr. Jodorowsky, at 88, shows the irrepressible energy of a man who is just getting started.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
