Decalogue VI. ★★★★½

Not the most immediately striking on a visual level, but by far the most wrenching. It's not just well-conceived as a narrative, but is also probably one of the most imaginative (thematic) reworkings of the Ten Commandments source. Its virtues are also pretty self-evident, and its treatment of voyeurism should certainly appeal to even those uninterested in Kieslowski's overall project. Not a very useful comparison, but Dekalog Six > Body Double. (Maybe even Rear Window, though I need to rewatch the Hitchcock.) Rating could go (even) higher once I'm better able to place the role Tomek's godmother (?) plays within the narrative, as well as resolve some lingering pacing issues towards the end. But what an ending. TV is so good right now.
