Screenings #21

I’ve seen revelatory work the last seven weeks, chief among which are La Chienne‘s Criterion Blu Ray release and Satyajit Ray’s sensitive, alert Charulata, possibly his best film. I’ve included links to reviews of new movies, La Chienne, and my introductory remarks for Miami Beach Cinematheque’s showing of The Fury.
