A conversation with Arjen de Leeuw


Fahrenheit
 451,
Francois
Truffaut.

I 
watched 
it 
again 
recently 
and 
thought 
it
 was 
very 
relevant 
these 
days 
when
 there
 are 
so 
many

cuts 
on 
cultural 
budgets.
 And 
of 
course 
it’s 
brilliant
 use 
of 
the
 word 
firemen.


Teorema, 
Pasolini.


Any
 film 
of 
Pasolini
 could 
be 
on 
this 
list,
 but 
I 
chose 
this 
one.




Guilietta
 della
 spiriti,
 Fellini


Fellini’s 
first 
film 
in 
colour,
with 
beautiful
 sets.


Le
 grande 
bouffe,
 Ferreri

the 
shot
 of
 the 
death
 meat
 hanging 
in 
the 
trees…
how 
relevant 
still!


The 
mirror,
 Tarkosvski


I 
have 
a 
friend 
who
 got
 to 
know 
the 
films 
of 
Tarkovsky 
dubbed 
in 
Italian!
 Who 
makes
 up 
things

like 
that..


Le
 Mepris, 
Godard

The 
trailer 
might 
be 
as 
brilliant 
as 
the 
film.



Sayad 
Nova, 
Colour 
of 
pomegranates,
 Paradjanov,

I 
do 
not 
know 
any thing 
like 
this 
film.
Pure
 visual 
poetry.


L'important 
c'est 
d'aimer

Why
 did 
Romy 
Schneider 
get 
famous 
with
 Sissy? 
She 
is 
fantastic 
in 
this
 film.


Woman 
in 
the 
dunes, 
Hiroshi
 Teshigahara

The 
concept 
is
 so 
simple,
 could 
be
 like 
one 
for 
a 
performance.


Sans
 soleil, 
Chris
Marker

You 
can 
watch 
it 
over 
and 
over 
again.



Ben
 Rivers 
his 
films.


Jan 
Svankmajer

 The 
Garden

In 
Comparison, 
Haroun
 Farocki


a 
beautiful 
film 
about 
brick production
 in 
different
 countries.
