While watching films I often ask myself, “What is it that compelled this filmmaker to tell this particular story?” With his latest film Ida, it is obvious that Pawel Pawlikowski set out to insinuate himself into the viewer’s heart and take them on a deeply rewarding eighty-minute road trip replete with intense directorial focus, stunning cinematography, and the single best usage of John Coltrane I have ever seen in a film.
