At the Movies，澳洲權威影評電視節目，由Margaret Pomeranz和David Stratton聯合主持。最近一集，在The Classic環節，回顧了Krzysztof Kieslowski的Camera Buff。
I first encountered Kieslowski's films in the early 1990s when living in Australia. SBS, a publicly funded broadcaster originally envisaged to provide news and entertainment to those whose mother language is not English, offers lots of non-English art films. I remembered on every Thursday, it would show a "Movie of the Week". An old gentleman, David Stratton, would spend a few minutes introducing the film to the viewers. David's opinions are always objective, concise and unpretentious. I learnt a lot from him. He also co-hosts a programme called The Movie Show.

Krzysztof Kieslowski ... had the rare luxury of having US studio sponsorship, no doubt partly because of his savvy use of narrative skills, photogenic stars, and evident polish. But Kieslowski spent roughly half his career making documentaries that have been rarely seen outside Poland; fortunately, a recent traveling retrospective and a newly released 2-disc Polish DVD offer opportunities to catch up.
The region-2 DVD from Polish Audiovisual Publishers is subtitled in English and French, and comes with an 18-page booklet in Polish and English. Browsing the North American Kieslowski DVDs, it appears that the only documentary unique to them is The Office (1966), a short film Kieslowski made in school; the Polish DVD repeats From a Night Porter’s Point of View (1978) and Talking Heads (1980), but offers 10 more films.
