Faced with death, Sindbad looks back on his life. Old photos and letters evoke past loves and short-lived passions. In these rambling memories, he recalls past moments of pleasure in a woman’s smile or a magnificent lunch. The plastic world of remembering is demonstrated by the freely flowing visual images. This poetic vision made on the basis of the Sindbad short stories by Gyula Krúdy is a core work of Hungarian film. Zoltán Huszárik builds up a strange world from fragments of events, visual shards and subjective feelings.

The first feature by Andrzej Żuławski immediately established his emotionally charged, fast-and-furious style. Drawing from the biography of his father, particularly his experiences in Nazi German-occupied Poland, the film follows a fugitive whose reality implodes when he witnesses the murders of his family, propelling him into a nightmarish world filled with doppelgängers, fluid identities, pervasive dread, and an enigmatic Nazi vaccine laboratory. In all its fantastic and macabre glory, The Third Part of the Night is a delirious portrayal of the chaos wrought upon the psyche by the horrors of war, and one of the most remarkable directorial debuts of all time.

Sticky My Fingers, Fleet My Feet is a film about a man accepting his old age. The film is playful, as its characters have an exaggerated infatuation with their games of touch football, the main character even keeping a book of stats for himself. John D. Hancock utilizes sound in order to help with the over dramatization, as the suspense builds before kick-off, where comically a young girl picks up the ball before they can begin. The sound again emphasizes the child in these older men, when the main character returns home to a bath. He imagines now he is playing tennis with a brush, leaving the viewer, in the bit of parallelism, to see he can’t be humbled by his age for long.
