If you haven’t seen Pedro Almodovar’s film in preparation for the most recent Academy Awards, I highly recommend it

The Head of Curatorial Affairs of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, Doris Berger, suggests five films to watch this week, as we remain isolate in our homes. Here are his comments on the films.

Jacquot de Nantes (1991)

Beloved director Agnes Varda made this heartwraming docudrama about the childhood of her late husband Jacques Dermy, who found his love for film-making while growing up in Nantes during the World War II.

Pain and Glory (2019)

If you haven’t seen Pedro Almodovar’s film in preparation for the most recent Academy Awards, I highly recommend it.

Contempt (Le Mepris) (1963)

My favourite performance by Brigitte Bardot is her starring role in this film – Jean-Luc Godard’s movie about movie-making. I also love this film for its amazing vistas and colours.

Sunset Boulevard (1950)

A screenwriter develops a dangerous relationship with a faded film star determined to make a triumphant return.

Stormy Wather (1943)

The relationship between an aspiring dancer and a popular songstress provides a retrospective of the great African American entertainers of the early 1900s.
