Saura Retrospective At The Lincoln Center

Yesterday, the Film Society of the Lincoln Center in NYC kicked off their retrospective of Spanish filmmaker Carlos Saura. Of all his films, I must mention Cría Cuervos, which still lingers strongly in my memory one year after seeing it. It manages to be both a powerful allegory for Franco Spain, and one of the best films about children I have ever seen. If you are in NYC, I urge you to attend at least one film at this retrospective. Saura's work deserves to be rediscovered. The retrospective runs from April 17 to May 3.
