Carl Theodor Dreyer

With three films in the top 50 of Sight and Sound’s Greatest Films poll, Dreyer is of his cinema history’s incontestable masters.

His films are renowned for their precision and purpose; deliberately paced, carefully composed and judiciously edited. And it’s a style that’s proved incredibly enduring, informing the tenor of much of contemporary art-house and ‘slow cinema’ from Carlos Reygadas to Lars von Trier. Discover the majestic works of one of the all-time greats.
