Difficult Films That Pay Off

On this episode of JBFC Podcast, we take a look at difficult films that are worth watching. Using Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life as a jumping off point, we go on to discuss other difficult films like Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and Ron Fricke's Baraka; and also why it's okay to balance entertainment cinema with art cinema.

The Tree of Life is currently playing at the Jacob Burns Film Center. Purchase tickets here. Baraka and 2001: A Space Odyssey are available on DVD, however it is highly recommended you screen both on Blu-ray if at all possible.
