"Mother Joan of the Angels" (1961, Dir: Jerzy Kawalerowicz)

Good acting, stunning images, nice use of symbolism... but there's something missing. It just didn't grip me, and some of the esoteric scene transitions and the lack of straightforwardness seemed less like artistic daring and more like clumsy filmmaking.

Grade: B-
