Directed by Jerzy Skolimowski
On the occasion of the release of his latest film, the powerful, audacious EO, revisit three of the most acclaimed works by the ever-fascinating, unfailingly original Polish veteran Jerzy Skolimowski. Each made outside his homeland yet infused with a mordant irony that is distinctively Central European, these films—the unsettling coming-of-age portrait DEEP END, the mesmerizing psychosexual horror reverie THE SHOUT, and the cunning social satire MOONLIGHTING—display the innovative approach to narrative and subtly destabilizing sense of surrealism that run throughout Skolimowski’s work.
