"Just because you have eyes does not mean you can see," challenges the great director-contrarian Peter Greenaway in his new cine-essay, which reveals the mysteries hidden in plain sight in one of the most famous paintings of all time, Rembrandt's The Night Watch. Greenaway "investigates" each of the painting's 34 characters, their poses and costumes, as well as the picture's setting and lighting, to discover clues to Rembrandt's fascinating take on the power struggles of 17th-century Amsterdam. - Jason Sanders
