1955, dir. Alain Resnais. Hailed by Francois Truffaut as the greatest film ever made, this short documentary by Alain Resnais dates to 1955, just a decade after the liberation of Auschwitz. Using contemporary as well as archival footage, the film delivers a remarkably reserved and deeply moving disquisition on the Holocaust, one whose universalist themes and rejection of common clichés still serve to anger and inspire.
