ARABIAN NIGHTS: VOLUME 2, THE DESOLATE ONE

DIRECTOR: Miguel Gomes - PORTUGAL

“The middle section of Gomes’s monumental yet light-footed magnum opus shifts into a more subdued and melancholic register. But within each of these three tales, framed as the wild imaginings of the Arabian queen Scheherazade and adapted from recent real-life events in Portugal, there are surprises and digressions aplenty. In the first, a deadpan neo-Western of sorts, an escaped murderer becomes a local hero for dodging the authorities. The second deals with the theft of 13 cows, as told through a Brechtian open-air courtroom drama in which the testimonies become increasingly absurd. Finally, a Maltese poodle shuttles between various owners in a tear-jerking collective portrait of a tower block’s morose residents.”—New York Film Festival. (131 mins.)

Filmography: Tabu (2012), Our Beloved Month of August (2008)
