Reviews for ‘The Death of Louis XIV’

death-of-louis-xiv-poster“Léaud’s finest onscreen creation since The 400 Blows.” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire

“Serra has crafted a ravishing, darkly witty evocation of 18th-century aristocracy and a neoclassical period piece as reminiscent of the historical films of Visconti and Rossellini as the modernist literary adaptations of Rohmer and Oliveira.” – Jordan Cronk, Film Comment

“A mesmerizing elegy.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times

“Strange, haunting… and perhaps the most beautiful film seen in Cannes [2016].” – Jonathan Romney, Sight & Sound

Reviews for ‘David Lynch: The Art Life’

david-lynch-the-art-life-poster-1“Insightful, absorbing and wonderfully weird.” Tom Huddleston, Time Out

“A compelling slice of cinephile inquiry.” – Christina Newland, RogerEbert.com

“Extravagantly surreal as the products of his imagination may be, they are deeply rooted in personal history and philosophy — and it’s this connection that Jon Nguyen’s disarmingly off-kilter documentary… probes to rewarding effect.” – Guy Lodge, Variety

“By merging memory and expression… the filmmakers evoke Lynch’s creative process in action.” – Peter Keough, Boston Globe
