EO, 2022, Jerzy Skolimowski, 88 Minutes, Janus Films/Sideshow, Poland/Uk/Italy
With his first film in seven years, legendary director Jerzy Skolimowski (Deep End, Moonlighting) directs one of his most free and visually inventive films yet, following the travels of a nomadic gray donkey named EO. On his journey, EO is both helped and hindered by a cast of characters including a young Italian priest (Lorenzo Zurzolo), a Countess (Isabelle Huppert), and a rowdy Polish soccer team. Loosely inspired by Robert Bresson’s AU HASARD BALTHAZAR, and featuring immersive, stunning cinematography by Michal Dymek coupled with Pawel Mykietyn’s resonant score, Skolimowski’s film puts the viewer in the perspective of its four-legged protagonist. EO’s journey speaks to the world around us, an equine hero boldly pointing out societal ills, and serving as a warning to the dangers of neglect and inaction, all while on a quest for freedom.
LA STRADA, 1954, Federico Fellini, 107 Minutes, Janus Films, Italy
When peasant Gelsomina (the dazzling Giulietta Masina) is sold to boorish strongman Zampanò (Anthony Quinn) as his on-the-road assistant, she quickly becomes both an adept carnival performer and victim of her master’s cruelty. This magical, poetic tale of love, loss and loneliness was one of Fellini’s favorites. With Richard Basehart. Winner of the inaugural Best Foreign-Language Film Oscar in 1956.
“Giulietta has the lightness of a phantom, a dream, an idea. She possesses the movements, the mimic skills and the cadences of a clown.” – Federico Fellini
