O Drakos (The Dragon): with English subtitles
Certain readers have been complaining that there's too much politics and not enough film on this blog; so to appease them I’ve managed to upload O Drakos (The Dragon); a strange, surreal Greek film from 1956, which is part film noir, part Kafka, part Ionescu, part Ealing Comedy, part Gogol. The film, which I’ve attached English subtitles to, is directed by Nikos Kountouros, was written by Iakovos Kambanellis, stars Dinos Iliopoulos and has a great soundtrack by Manos Hadjidakis. The Greek Film Critics Association once voted O Drakos the best Greek film of all time.
