Wowed by the Three Colors Trilogy or The Decalogue? Here's a glimpse at their reclusive director, Polish-born Krzysztof Kieslowski, who gave up filmmaking right around the time this documentary was filmed and died less than a year

later, in March 1996. Kieslowski is probably best known in the U.S. for THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VERONIQUE, RED, WHITE, and BLUE, as well as his ambitious Decalogue, short films inspired by the ten commandments. Kieslowski was interviewed over the course of several days in 1995 by Krzysztof

Wierzbicki, his assistant director. Kieslowski emerges as pretty much what you'd expect from his pensive, pessimistic and unapologetically philosophical films. And he's probably more forthcoming than usual, given that he's being filmed in a safe cocoon by a familiar collaborator. Wierzbicki's

oddest conceit is to solicit opinions about Kieslowski from a clairvoyant, a graphologist, a doctor, a psychotherapist and a priest. But their pronouncements on his character aren't as revealing as his own, which elucidate the link in his work between the mystic and the quotidian, the humanist and

the nihilist. (In Polish, with English subtitles.)

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
