A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE
Roy Andersson, Sweden/Denmark, 2014 (101 mins)

Roy Andersson’s ‘Living Trilogy’ is concluded in style with these brilliantly absurd vignettes. In this film, the Swedish master of comic absurdity gives us an aloof pigeon’s eye view of the curious nature of human busyness in which we take advantage of one another and yet Andersson assures us things could be worse.
