The Apu Trilogy

“I love Indian culture and Indian film and Indian music," the creator said. 🙄🙄🙄
What will they think my neighbors,?" says Apu (Soumitra Chatterjee) in the third installment of Satyajit Ray's Apu Trilogy, Apur Sansar (The Word of Apu, 1959), currently being revived at Film Forum and other theaters.
What makes the masters of twentieth century cinema great was the ambitiousness of their project. Kurosawa's Ikiru ("To Live"), Bergman's Wild Strawberries and The Seventh Seal, Fellini's La Dolce Vita, Mizoguchi's Ugetsu and Antonioni's L'avventura don't shy away from grappling with life and death.
