    There are movies that you’ll carry with you your whole life. You change and get older, they stay just the same, and whatever new you see in them is a reflection of your changed self. It’s a cliche, but I’m old enough now to feel how true it is. Anyway, this is one of those movies. I love it dearly.

    Knocking half a star for the score. Deren’s images work better here without it.

    Orgosolo’s Shepherds

    ★★★★½

    De Seta understood that one of the great pleasures of cinema is watching people struggle and labour, then sit down and eat some food. Huddled around a fire cooking as the sun goes down: the perfect climax to any movie.

    I can’t think of another movie that’s so meta and cerebral while being so simply and purely affecting.

    A masterpiece.
