Critic Reviews for Lumière and Company
The 40 brief films are often wonderful, and always revealing in the way they show professional directors working on what amounts to a haiku.
Even the gamest of viewers will want to indulge her nostalgia judiciously, to avoid getting sour on the narcissism of the exercise.
Uneven, but interesting experiment
Audience Reviews for Lumière and Company
A really interesting concept with beautiful thoughts about film from world-renowned filmmakers. The actual structure and craft of the documentary needs a little work though.
A 55 second short made for the centennial of film (1996) using one of the original antique movie cameras.
Lynch's entry in the Lumiere and Company film is actually a rather successful piece of horrific cinema. Filmed on the Lumiere's cinematographe with a run time of less than 52 seconds, Lynch's entry features a single shot that is truly breathtaking and unexpected. An example of how short cinema can still achieve a genuinely visceral impact.
