Carl Theodor Dreyer
"The Castle Within the Castle" is an 8-minute documentary movie from over 60 years ago and it is exactly about what the title says. The only reason I think this is somewhat known is because of its director. Carl Theodor Dreyer made this in the final years of his career and when people say that architecture may only really be for old people and they are the ones who usually have an interest in it, this may also apply to Dreyer. He is among the most known directors of all time from Denmark and Scandinavia. However, this is not a great film by him I must say. It bay be a good watch for those who really care about architecture, but the rest really does not need to check out this black-and-white documentary. Just too specific to be interesting. Not recommended.
