Down the Hatch

"For 20 years, Claire Denis has been among France's foremost filmmakers with her acute yet subtle observations of the ebbs and flows within relationships. Her perception and understanding seem to grow only richer over the years, and her newest film, "35 Shots of Rum," is surely one of her finest -- and thereby one of the best films of the year."  -- Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

This year's Passport Series concludes on Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 28-29 with the tender and radiant 35 Shots of Rum, one of the best reviewed films of the year (96% on Metacritic) and a wonderful entry point into the exquisitely sensual world of Claire Denis.
