5 Paradigms: Film

Amarcord
Director: Federico Fellini
Year: 1973

A sentimental favorite about life in a small Italian town in the 1930s,
it’s the Fellini film closest to my heart.

A Streetcar Named Desire
Director: Elia Kazan
Year: 1951

Brando makes the powerful first impression, but it’s Vivien Leigh’s performance that remains richly nuanced.

 

Cries and Whispers
Director: Ingmar Bergman
Year: 1972

Bergman strips to the bone when it comes to the essence of human relationships. No exception here.

 

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Director: Tim Burton
Year: 2007

Burton’s artistic vision of the operatic Stephen Sondheim score redefines the standards for musicals transported to film.

Death in Venice
Director: Luchino Visconti
Year: 1971

One of the rare examples of a film adaptation of classic literature living up to the greatness of the original material.
