Classics and discoveries from around the world, thematically programmed with special features, on a streaming service brought to you by the Criterion Collection.
These touchingly humanist tales discover unexpected beauty where few would think to look. In Satsuki Okawa’s intimate, gently humorous short TIDY UP, a brother and sister find themselves at odds over how to deal with their deceased mother’s home, which has become a hoarder’s haven now full of memories. Characters also find refuge amid unusual circumstances in Akira Kurosawa’s intensely personal DODES’KA-DEN—the master director’s first film in color, which he uses to blazing, expressionistic effect—which compassionately portrays the struggles and dreams of a band of social outcasts living in a rubbish dump outside Tokyo.
