Earth (1930)

Though virtually unknown today, Aleksandr Dovzhenko's silent film Earth (1930) received high praise almost immediately, and has been a top contender in several polls of the greatest films ever made. It's a simple propaganda piece that overcomes its flaws through graceful cinematography and editing. The story of a farm collective that obtains a tractor pales next to the images of man trying and failing to control his element. Birth, death and rebirth takes place no matter how man interferes. To that end, Dovzhenko continually squashes his human forms to the bottom of the frame, giving beautiful precedence to the sky and the horizon. read more...

Virunga (2014)

Netflix's own feature documentary Virunga received an Oscar nomination, which will most likely pique the interests of many subscribers. And it is indeed compelling, moving beyond the usual talking heads of most documentaries and closer to the human condition. It's also a strong work of journalism, depicting the struggles of the Virunga National Park in Africa's Congo. The park is home to an endangered species of mountain gorilla, and animal lovers will want to save their best "awwws" for these huggable, docile creatures. But the park must also maintain its own militia, because it's also the home of many precious natural resources -- including a recently discovered oil deposit -- which makes it a constant target. The movie includes some shocking hidden camera footage of oilmen discussing their nefarious plans, as well as footage of real attacks. In real-life, park director Emmanuel de Merode was shot just before the film's premiere (he survived). Orlando von Einsiedel directed this powerful, must-see film. read more...
