    "Spielberg asserted his own role and deftly organized the elements of a roller coaster without sacrificing inner meanings. The suspense of that picture came from meticulous technique and good humour about its own surgical cutting. You only have to submit to the travesty of JAWS 2 to realize how much more engagingly Spielberg saw the ocean, the perils, and the sinister beauty of the shark, and the vitality of its human opponents."

    David Thompson in The New Biographical Dictionary of Film

    "Spielberg uses his gift in a very free-and-easy, American way - for humour, and for a physical response to action. He could be that rarity among directors, a born entertainer - perhaps a new generation's Howard Hawks."

    Pauline Kael in her review of The Sugarland Express

  3. From Remigiusz Sowa, Best Documentary Transmitter Award winner at the Crystal Palace International Film Festival 2010, comes a truly remarkable story of Father Lazarus El Anthony, a university lecturer and Marxist who abandoned his life in Australia and went in search of God and freedom. His pilgrimage eventually brought him to live the life of a Christian Coptic monk and live in solitude on the Egyptian Al-Qalzam Mountain in the pursuit of what the Desert Fathers called apatheia, holy stillness.
