Anthony Asquith directed this literate period thriller in the late silent era    long before his more recognized stage-to-screen works like Pygmalion.      A Cottage on Dartmoor (1929, 87 mins.) is a prime example of the           sophisticated narrative and cinematic techniques--expressive camera angles,    eerie lighting, rapid editing--Asquith borrowed from earlier German and Soviet masters and wielded to great effect. While this picture helped raise the       esteem Britons held for moviemaking in the thirties, the companion BFI           documentary Silent Britain (David Thompson, 2006, 88 mins.) connotes the current reevaluation of British silent cinema, a veritable golden age. Written and presented by Matthew Sweet, it covers the early works of George Albert     Smith, Cecil Hempworth, Maurice Elvey, Asquith, and Alfred Hitchcock. Also       features the commentary of Academy Award-winning cinematographer Jack Cardiff  (Black Narcissus, film scholar Ian Christie, and archival footage of     Anthony Asquith/David Thompson---Great Britain---1929/2006---175 mins.

A pair of dark, disturbing, delusional tales of disaffected youth in Japan. An Official Selection at the Berlin Film Festival, Carnival in the Night      (Masashi Yamamoto, 1982, 108 mins.) captures the Tokyo punk scene of the 1980s. Blurring the line between documentary and fiction, Yamamota gets the most out of a cast of young toughs, who more or less play themselves, while shooting on 16mm for an appropriately gritty style. It involves a punk rocker who leaves her son with her ex-husband and begins an unusual odyssey through Tokyo's underbelly. A punk ethos also informs Peep TV Show (2004, 98 mins.), Yutaka Tsuchiya's energetic descent into the subculture of video surveillance, Japanese "Lolitas," pornography, internet transmissions, and 9-11. Tsuchiya offers a radical perspective on complex subjects, experimenting with every aspect of digital. In Japanese with English subtitles.  Masashi Yamamoto/Yutaka Tsuchiya---Japan---1982/2004---206 mins.

Notorious for being late, incarcerated, cracked out, or just straight-up no      shows for their concerts, the Wu-Tang Clan (especially Ol' Dirty Bastard) are    at the center of the ruckus in this nail-biting documentary that takes viewers   behind the scenes of the 2004 "Rock the Bells" hip hop festival. Watching      promoter Chang Weisberg and his Guerilla Union promotion team try to wrangle   the Clan before the California stop is almost more exciting than watching the  East Coast crew perform. Which is good for you, because the filmmakers don't     include any performance footage. Dollah dollah bill y'all.

"The most extraordinary film I have ever seen," says Susan Sontag of director Hans-Jurgen Syberberg's epic nightmare rumination on Adolf Hitler, the cultural mechanisms underlying his mythic rise, and the effect he continues to wield over Germany. In a series of 22 tableaux set on a soundstage, Syberberg makes use of puppets, props, a thundering Wagnerian soundtrack, and rear-screen projection to evoke the origins of the Third Reich, Nazi Germany, and the disturbing aftermath. Neither a feature film nor a conventional documentary, Hitler: Ein Film aus Deutschland is a seven-hour avant-garde fever dream on coming to terms with Nazism. Originally distributed by Francis Coppola's Zoetrope Studios, this notorious film was hailed by Coppola as a work that rendered all other films of the time obsolete.
