3 Faces

3 Faces ★★★

Slow and peaceful (almost too slow in places) and occasionally too clever for its own good, maybe? But as a critique and examination of the struggle between the individual to tell stories, to make art, to entertain, and the desire for shared communal values that resist uh, frivolous behavior, this thing feels comprehensive and thoughtful, particularly when it seems to be focusing on the role of women who want to create in a patriarchal society. And in that sense, the final shot, already low-key beautiful and effective as metaphor, takes on a warm and lingering optimism that makes the journey worthwhile.
