This restored rerelease ranks among the few films about artists to be themselves masterpieces. Edvard Munch is a stunning, unorthodox recreation of the Norwegian painter's life, from the director of such equally inimitable classics as The War Game and La Commune. The New York Times calls it a "magnificent portrait both of a crushingly repressive culture...and of a man tormented by religion, madness, sexual jealousy and ever-present death." (166 mins.)
