The Definitives serve as my personal canon of classic, contemporary, independent, and international films. Curated and celebrated on Deep Focus Review, each article in The Definitives provides an impassioned appreciation, researched from this site’s extensive and ever-growing Bibliography to ensure a detailed analysis through multiple frames (biographical, contextual, historical, intertextual, extratextual, etc.). Additionally, screen stories are discussed in detail throughout The Definitives; visitors are strongly encouraged to read these essays and appreciations after screening the film. I hope The Definitives enhance your viewing experience, whether it’s your first time with the film, you’re rediscovering it, or you’re returning to a longtime favorite for a new perspective.
