A Short Film About Killing

A Short Film About Killing ★★★★½

Kieslowski can really make use of 25 extra minutes. There was a lot of depth to this one that perhaps I’m simply picking up on a second viewing, but I felt a lot more invested in the protagonist this time around, perhaps because we spent more time getting to know his relations to those around him through human bonding and coincidence. No one in mankind is worthy enough to carry out capital punishment, and no one should be allowed to.
