In the Vague Visages Writers’ Room on Slack, freelancers were asked to comment about their favorite new wave films from any international movement.
“Fassbinder created a masterpiece that is relatable due to his depictions of racism, discrimination and the complexities of identity — themes which still resonate loudly today.”
“As the artist who painstakingly moved her hand-cut figures frame-by-frame, Reiniger’s presence is impossible to ignore while watching her films.”
“The brooding ominousness Van Maele plays with throughout seems to run through many of this year’s European offerings.”
“Epic in scope and theme, the subject of ‘Destiny’ is most heart-rending in its moments of intimacy.”
