JOACHIM TRIER
Norway 2006

mubijt

MUBI’S TAKE: Trier’s exquisitely unsettling Thelma dives into the female universe with surprising delicacy and sharpness, but the Norwegian had already shown impressive understanding of what it means to be alive in his ambitious debut—a tale of friendship and dreams infused with the charm of the French New Wave.

LÉA MYSIUS
France 2017

mubilm

MUBI’S TAKE: One of the best debuts of the year lands on MUBI!

mubiyl

MUBI’S TAKE: If you enjoyed The Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer, you may want to know where it all started (Dogtooth wasn’t the beginning!). Greek maverick Yorgos Lanthimos’ debut is a rarely seen, elliptical and weirdly captivating take on alienation, released on DVD for the first time by Second Run. WATCH NOW

MUR MURS
AGNÈS VARDA
France 1981

mubiav

MUBI’S TAKE: If in Daguerréotypes Varda captured the charm of the mundane in her own street, Mur Murs finds the restless auteur in California for an equally lucid ethnographic exercise: tracking down anonymous street artists, using their murals as metaphor and means by which to spotlight the marginalized.

THE GOLD DIGGERS
SALLY POTTER
UK 1983

mubisp

MUBI’S TAKE: Sally Potter is one of the most intrepid and distinctive voices in British cinema. On the back of the huge success of The Party, we want to spotlight her debut, an award-winning feminist touchstone of the 1980s—made with an entirely female crew—that rewires Classical Hollywood with the avant-garde.

SOMETHING DIFFERENT / O NĚČEM JINÉM
VĚRA CHYTILOVÁ
Czechoslovakia 1963

mubivc

MUBI’S TAKE: Next in our first films series is trailblazing auteur Věra Chytilová’s Something Different. Best known for the gloriously anarchic Daisies, her debut already boasts a sharp eye for social critique and gender politics—she never stopped challenging patriarchy and her work is as relevant today as ever.
