Movie Diary 5/25/2021

Songs from the Second Floor (Roy Andersson, 2000). “Blessed be the one who sits down.” This one is second only to Andersson’s You, the Living in his series of tableau-blackout films. Big bonus here is the DVD commentary track, which, unusually for such things, is actually worth listening to. (My review of Andersson’s latest, About Endlessness, is here.)
