The United States may be the destination of choice for many immigrants, but the best dramatic films on the subject tend to be made in other countries, and the new Criterion Collection release of “The Emigrants” and “The New Land” are a case in point.
Made in the early 1970s by top Swedish director Jan Troell, and both starring international luminaries Max von Sydow and Liv Ullman, these two films, clocking in at more than three hours each, convincingly tell the story of what coming to America is like in a way it had not been told before. – Kenneth Turan
