Four films from Lech Majewski the director of THE MILL AND THE CROSS

Lech Majewski is a world-renowned director, writer, cinematographer, poet, composer, and stage director. Born in Poland, Majewski graduated from the Łódź Film School in 1977. The numerous feature films in his repertoire have garnered critical acclaim across the globe, and in 2006 The Museum of Modern Art in New York honored Majewski with a comprehensive retrospective of his work, entitled "Lech Majewski: Conjuring the Moving Image"

The Washington Post's Philip Kennicott wrote: "Majewski is a brilliant filmmaker whose haunting aesthetic is processed through a lively mind and idiosyncratic imagination, chastened and tempered by history, and captured on screen with the rigor and perfectionism of an artist who might also carve castles out of toothpicks. Throughout his films, the great categories of our existence - the public and private, the personal and political, the natural world and the man-made one - constantly dissolve into one another."


Gospel According to Harry
Cast
Jennifer Rubin
Viggo Mortensen

Crew
Directed by Lech Majewski

Years before THE LORD OF THE RINGS catapulted him to international superstardom, Viggo Mortensen played Wes, a young husband locked in co-dependent discontent with his beautiful and needy wife. Combining the theatrical surrealism of Beckett and Ionesco, the the playfulness of Richard Lester, and the scathing social critique and imagery for which Majewski is renowned, THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO HARRY is a wholly original cinematic tour de force. Available here for the first time on DVD. Poland.

Glass Lips
Crew
Directed by Lech Majewski

A kaleidoscope of surreal, provocative, and resonant imagery, in GLASS LIPS Majewski explores a hidden human frontier where memory, madness, and imagination meet. Composed of 33 short films entitled Blood of a Poet, the film opened the 2006 Lech Majewski Retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. A year later, the Venice Biennale presented it on multiple screens, prior to the theatrical release in the feature form offered here.

The Garden of Earthly Delights
Crew
Directed by Lech Majewski

Based on his own novel Metaphysics, Lech Majewski crafts intimate passion plays and creates "a luminous, highly erotic treatise on art, love and death" (Chicago Reader). When a terminally-ill art historian meets an engineer, it is love and lust at first sight. But their love is threatened by her looming illness. With her remaining days on earth numbered, she chooses to fan the flames of her obsession by taking her lover on a trip to Venice, where the artist's work becomes the background for their physical passion and emotional discovery.
