This smorgasbord of “minor Renoir” encompasses and summarizes his career from beginning to end; a bargain for the cinephile, expert or novice. For those who know about Renoir’s philosophical and artistic preference for extended takes and depth of field, they’ll see how experimental, how surreal, how flashily edited, how positively Eisensteinian the young filmmaker was. The earliest four films here, all silent, are vehicles for Renoir’s discovery of what can be done with a camera. [Amazon]
