Very interesting documentary and the darker it gets the more interesting it gets. How I would love to make a bio pick about Vivian Maier. A day in the life of Vivian or something like that. Capture her creativity but also her dark, pessimistic and sadistic side.
Yes she was a great photographer but I think her life is even more interesting. A damaged person (burned by experience, probably sexually molested) trying to connect to the world that both fascinates her and scares her.
I just saw The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover again or as I would call it, The Church, The Devil, Mankind and Jesus Christ.
There are probably many ways to look at and read The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover but one of the most obvious one has to be a religious interpretation.
Through out the film a young boy with blond hair, who looks like a Cherub, sings verses from Psalm 51, where sins are…
Béla Tarr is a hit and miss with me. This is, IMO, his best film. Simplicity becomes him! We have everything from a Béla Tarr film here, the wind, things blowing all over the place, long takes, beautiful black and white cinematography, dirty people, even dirtier animals, repetition of things, filmed from a different view, hopelessness and a dystopian world. Here Tarr's style works perfectly for the story.
There are going to be SPOILERS from here on!!!
What we have…
