'Wuthering Heights' and Andrea Arnold
Director Andrea Arnold has made three films, each of them distinctive and resonant. Her latest, an adaptation of Wuthering Heights, impressed me greatly when I saw it in Toronto a year ago, so I was looking forward to seeing it again closer to its release. I was just as enthralled the second time. For IFC Fix, I discuss what makes Arnold's films so special.
(P.S. This was, I believe, the very first still made available to the press last year when Wuthering Heights was playing the fall festivals. I love this, in part because its murky, bleak mystery just feels appropriate to the film.)
