The Cool World ★★★★½

A rewatch (from a beautiful 35mm print, the only way this should be seen) that enhanced everything at once: the writtenness of some of the scenes and especially the voice over, and also the musical flow of the images. Last but not least the realisation that these aren`t opposing forces: THE COOL WORLD integrates both the prosaic and the poetic into its mosaic-like fabric. One of the first and purest spoken-word-pieces of cinema.
