because you want to be in a thoughtful, receptive mood when you flock to the Museum of Modern Art October 5-16 for its retrospective of the films of Marlen Khutsiev. I’ve only seen his July Rain, which is quintessential Soviet thaw cinema. Most of his films aren’t available on DVD, so you need to be there.
And to top it all off, Khutsiev, NINETY-ONE YEARS OLD, is working on a new film and is coming to New York City to be interviewed at MOMA!!
