    One Exciting Night

    ★★★★★

    Really the whole time I was watching this I kept thinking it was trying to accomplish the same things as Contempt or Pierrot le Fou, I mean I found it to be incredibly Llullian and scientific. The scientific logic of Rossellini, the deadpan irony and timing of Mizoguchi and the exploring and unmasking of the supernatural with the same intensity as Bergman.

    D. W. Griffith’s legendary controversial epic: The Birth of a Nation: Portrait of a historical memory in America as neo-Roman romantic-fantasy — synthesized as absurdist comedy. First, we have part one, much tamer than part two and much more seriously structured with regard to traditional storytelling. Part one has a real concentrated sentimentalizing effort, the warm small mannerisms and movements of the characters (set up as tragedy). My favorite scene is still one towards the beginning when our ‘hero protagonist’…
