Raúl Zurita: INRI

Raúl Zurita's INRI is a powerful volume of poetry that makes the sea, mountains, rivers, deserts, and fields of Chile a tomb for the disappeared of Pinochet's reign. The sky is the tombstone. It's a stunning book, coming to us now in a translation from the Spanish by William Rowe.

Julien Duvivier: Panique

In 1946, Julien Duvivier returned to France and for his first post-World War II film made Panique, an adaptation of one of Georges Simenon's dark books of human ugliness. It's a fantastic film, and The Criterion Collection recently released a great edition on home video.
