Nothing to say, just movies watched (and some re watched) this year
Loved the cinematography; characters behind glass (invisibly separated, but on the other side of something), games with mirrors (the infinite projections, everything looks the same but has layers, reflections that seem to be different but are the same - this is the matrix). Sometimes avoiding the shot-reverse shot.
I found the ending ambiguous.
The doppelganger in Pitfall (everything happens 2 times), the highly sensorial Woman in the Dunes, the extreme experimentation in The Face of Another (hello, David Lynch?) -also, the sets are amazing.
He got it right. This film could be a very accurate portrait of this (extremely intolerant and frightening) times.
Loved the music.
The black hole - hunger.
Excellent metaphor with the mask; once you put it on, maybe you won't be able to take it off.
Even now this film would still be irreverent.
Funny, extremely humane.
I love the illuminated fool character.
'you could make a film about my suffering'
The tense relations, the never consummated incest.
Antonioni did it before Hitchcock.
The ending... my... god
All that's not there.
Details. Sound. Objects.
A lot more interesting than I would have thought. Putting this film in context makes it much stronger.
Interesting narrative game; 'reconstructing' all the story.
Highly entertaining, given the fact that everything happens in a room.
Liked very much the opening sequence.
Very though provoking...
'It's unscientific, unexplainable, unnatural, unnreasonable. It makes no sense!'
I love the evil cat.
While this marriage falls apart, every place they visit is related to the past. Very evident when they visit Pompeii
Note: funny cultural differences ("I don't understand what's with all this garlic and oil" "everyone's asleep as if it where the middle of the night" "the lady can't understand you, you're not making the right gestures")
Didn't like the happy ending...
The battle for the mind of Northamerica will be fought in the video arena
you're reality is already half video hallucination
Personal favorite: Pather Panchali
La mirada sobre cada personaje, sin juzgar y rehuyendo del estereotipo; son complejos y con matices: personas. Tal vez de ahí venga a lo que se refieren con el "humanismo de Satyajit Ray".
