Antonio Gaudí Review


Good
Antonio Gaudí was a Spanish artist and architect who worked throughout Spain (most famously in Barcelona) through the late 1800s before falling into financial ruin and abandoning his career. He focused on what would be his masterpiece, Barcelona's La Sagrada Familia (an enormous, elaborate cathedral), but never finished it. Eventually he was run over by a streetcar and died days later, penniless. Still under construction, the hope is to have Sagrada completed by 2026, the 100th anniversary of Gaudí's death. Wow.

Despite Gaudí's fascinating life story, you won't find much of that in the documentary film that bears his name, a love poem from Japanese director Hiroshi Teshigahara. Teshigahara trains his camera on myriad Gaudí works, including the Palace of Catalan Music, schools and markets, private homes, apartment buildings, and of course the unfinished La Sagrada Familia. It's essentially a travelogue, nearly worldless and just 72 minutes long.

The Face Of Another Review


Excellent
Japanese director Hiroshi Teshigahara didn't make many films before his death in 2001, but he left behind quite the cinematic reputation, most notably with the weird and unforgettable Woman in the Dunes (1964) and The Face of Another, an almost surreal Twilight Zone-like exercise in the ultimate identity crisis that has enough going on in it to fuel several film school dissertations.

We meet the bandaged Mr. Okuyama (Tatsuya Nakadai) as he is recovering from an industrial accident that has destroyed his face. Wrapped from the neck up like a mummy with eye and mouth holes, he's actually in decent physical shape and is sitting around at home wondering what to do with his life while his understandably skittish and distant wife (Machiko Kyo) darts around the apartment.
