Prologue to a Project: a project for Cinema Stripped Down

For years, two men have left the world mind-boggled over one thing. That one thing, was colour. Emeric Pressburger and Michael Powell have been able to use colour like no other to create dreamlike segments. But it is not only their colour films that are good, we will seen if there is more to them than just great usage of colour when we watch and review every Emeric Pressburger and Michael Powell film.

Because Powell and Pressburger have some dificult films, their filmography have been divided among Wilbert Takken and Timothy Andersson.

Here is their complete filmography:
*NOTE: We are only doing the films they did together.
