Hello! I’m back from vacation. Vacation is why I’m behind on sharing and posting my work. Don’t look at me like that. I’m entitled to go on vacation. Deal with it.
Anyways: Here’s Andrei Rublev. There’s a new restoration of Andrei Rublev running in New York City, at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, courtesy of Janus Films. I’m not sure I agree that Andrei Rublev is “the greatest arthouse film ever,” but it’s up there, and it’s a masterpiece, and if you’re in NYC, you should go NY-see it. (Bet you missed my amazing dad jokes, yeah?)
If you’re not in NYC, don’t worry, Criterion’s dropping a Blu ray in September. Rule to live by: If Janus releases a movie in theaters, that means they’re adding it to their library. Duh.
Long story short, I wrote about Andrei Rublev for The Playlist and reflected on its enduring relevance.
