We Can't Go Home Again (1973)
Directed by Nicholas Ray

Called by some a visionary masterpiece, and by others a fool’s errand, this controversial film embodies Ray’s last explorations in the medium that he called “the cathedral of the arts.” Along with its technical innovations unequaled even today, the film explores the face of a community at a critical moment in our cultural-political history and offers a searing portrait of the filmmaker’s soul.
