Strange Victory (1948)

This poetic, essay-like documentary was released in 1948, but remains — crushingly — relevant in 2018. Director Leo Hurwitz combined harrowing footage of WWII and its aftermath with footage of civilians at home, carefully demonstrating how the ideas of hatred and separation that led to the war continue in America after its victory. Or, as the narrator puts it, the ideas of the losers are active among the winners. Strange Victory is a uniquely thoughtful, forward-thinking film, unafraid to point out the basic flaws of racism and cultural discrimination. True to form, the film's enemies, rather than listening to its arguments and responding intelligently, simply tried to shut it down, labeling it "communist" and blacklisting its maker. In the film, Hurwitz crosses images of worried-looking folks on the street with brutal images of destruction, then moves on to a moment of hope: the end of the war. He focuses on babies being born, all equal in their cribs, but notes their differences, and the ways that society will strive to keep them apart and to keep some of them down. He ends with the argument that hope is still in short supply and that the true victory is yet to be won. And, with hatred and racism rampant in the American mainstream today, that argument is still valid. read more...

The Silence (1963)

After the worldwide success of The Seventh Seal and Wild Strawberries, the very hot Ingmar Bergman turned to a trio of films to try to ask some complicated questions about religion and faith. The results are Through a Glass Darkly (1961), Winter Light (1962) and The Silence (1963), and each is better than the one before. read more...

Day of Wrath (1943)

Carl Theodor Dreyer's Day of Wrath (1943) follows the rather spectacular subject of witch hunts in the 17th century. But with Dreyer's artistry driving the film, it becomes far more than just a sideshow attraction. The luminous Lisbeth Movin stars as a preacher's young second wife who helps to harbor an accused witch, then falls illicitly in love with her husband's grown son (from his first marriage). When the husband finds out, she curses him, he dies, and she's accused of witchcraft. Dreyer's fluid, softly moving camera that takes in long, slow shots heightens the sensual nature of the film as well as its mystery. It's both a direct and indirect way of looking at the story -- and withholding its secrets -- that makes it resonate. read more...
