Angelus, November 18
A poison-pen valentine to the early '80s N.Y. art scene, as lived by doomed graffiti artist–turned–art star Jean-Michel Basquiat. Written by Majewski, directed by Julian Schnabel.
Majewski's portrait of poet and provocateur Rafal Wojaczek, a Rimbaud for Iron Curtain–era Poland. “Black-and-white elegance. . . . Continually laugh-out-loud biopic.”-Village Voice
A pre–Lord of the Rings Viggo Mortensen is adrift in a futuristic California suburb after the Pacific has turned to sand in Majewski's Lynchian dystopia of ecology-and society-run amok.
Lech Majewski in Person. Majewski's tale of medieval fury and faith is “beautiful, mystical.”-L.A. Times
Lech Majewski in Person. Fellini meets Tarkovsky in this gorgeous paean to eccentricity, set among coal-mining painters in Stalinist Poland.
Lech Majewski in Person. Emotions and sensations sing in this inspiring cinematic opera, set entirely inside a family apartment that slowly succumbs to nature. “One of a kind.”-Time Out
Lech Majewski in Person. Majewski combines 33 short video-art pieces into one dreamlike work involving a poet, childhood, and memory. Like a Polish Cremaster Cycle, yet personal, political, and ultimately affecting.
