Great Shot of the Week

Woman in the Dunes (1964)

Dir. Hiroshi Teshigahara

Teshigahara’s film is a masterpiece of surrealism and existential dread, but there’s a sweetness to the film that I far from predicted.  A haunting portrayal of isolation, yes, but the raw humanity at display against the backdrop of an endlessly unforgiving environment, and how man adapts to its surroundings, is profoundly touching.  Here you get a glance at the stunning photography of the sands, a piece of cinematic symbolism that would make just about any cinematographer jealous.  Enjoy.
