Satyajit Ray

Posted by martinteller on July 31, 2011

Lengthy documentary featuring clips by and interviews with the great filmmaker.  It covers a lot of ground and all aspects of his work, with generous clips from many of his films (newcomers might take note that there are a few minor spoilers, but nothing to get too upset about).  Perhaps not as in-depth as it could be, but a good overview to his career with some interesting insights.  It renewed and confirmed my excitement for his films.  The long sequence at the beginning, featuring Ray working on the set of Ghare Baire, is not as compelling you would hope for, though.  Rating: Very Good
