Twitter Web Client : Were highlighting the feminist fantasias of Anna Biller, a filmmaker who tweaks kitsch to subversive ends. Enjoy her features, THE LOVE WITCH and VIVA, as well as the short films THREE EXAMPLES OF MYSELF AS A QUEEN, A VISIT FROM THE INCUBUS, & THE HYPNOTIST!

Twitter Web Client : Enjoy a Mother’s Day salute to the memorable screen moms we’d never forget to call, featuring: MILDRED PIERCE, WHITE HEAT, ONIBABA, GREY GARDENS, SECRETS & LIES, MOTHER, I KILLED MY MOTHER, and TINY FURNITURE.

Twitter Web Client : Were turning the spotlight on one of classic Hollywood’s master craftsmen and his complex, unforgettable heroines with WHAT PRICE HOLLYWOOD?, OUR BETTERS, DINNER AT EIGHT, LITTLE WOMEN, SYLVIA SCARLETT, CAMILLE, THE WOMEN, A WOMANS FACE, TWO-FACED WOMAN, and GASLIGHT!

Twitter Web Client : Shot on digital video, QUIET AS KEPT is the shortest, and in a sad or painful way, the most humorous of these films. At the end, it also serves as Burnett’s prescription for the kind of thing black cinema at its best should do. criterionchannel.com/charles-burnet…

Twitter Web Client : Financed by South German television & shot on digital video, THE FINAL RESULT is the longest, grimmest, & most formally unorthodox of the 5...The film also has scenes that occupy an ambiguous, liminal space between the poles of documentary & fiction. criterionchannel.com/charles-burnet…

Twitter Web Client : On WHEN IT RAINS: Even though it deals with poverty, this is Burnett’s most charming short film and one of his best films period...As Jonathan Rosenbaum has pointed out, each encounter functions like a short jazz solo or a segment of four-bar blues. criterionchannel.com/charles-burnet…

Twitter Web Client : On THE HORSE: Quietly poetic & deliberately enigmatic, it derives from a short story Burnett had written in homage to William Faulkner...It gives us clear evidence of his sensitivity to design, mastery of decoupage, & ability to develop dramatic tension. criterionchannel.com/charles-burnet…
