366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 101

The Date: January 9

The Movie: The Color of Pomegranates (1969)

What Is It?: Director Sergei Parajanov relays the major beats of Armenia poet Sayat-Nova’s life through a series of beautiful, meticulously organized tableaux. I’d recommend turning down the sound and cranking Their Satanic Majesties Request if I wasn’t afraid that cineastes and Stones fans would club me to death for suggesting such a thing.

Why Today?: On this day in 1924, Sergei Parajanov is born.
