A disarmingly breakneck pace reminiscent of Enter the Void at times.
My new favourite Dreyer. A series of conversations often so painful the participants can barely look each other in the eye. Where people speak of the essentials of truth without being able to confront it, except for Gertrud.
Never has so much been said about relationship dynamics through seating, than with this film. All these conversations centred around the nature of a relationship at the centre of the scene - defined by the chairs or benches where the characters are…
This is not really a film, but it's here and it's amazing. Years of character and world building leads to this brilliantly and hilariously conceived trial. Excellent performances all around maintain the skewed reality of the On Cinema universe to perfection.
From Tim's perfect "dirtbag straining to appear as a decent upstanding man" outfit combination of ill-fitting suit and goatee, to Gregg chowing down on popcorn, and the occasional explosive outburst, it is a comedic experiment unlike any other.
