Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles ★★★★★

Sells routine without showing the repetition. You know things are off as soon as the second day begins.

One of my favorite moments was when her seat was taken at the diner and the camera doesn’t even think to reframe her. She’s off to the side, almost fading out of her own movie.

A friend of mine recommended this movie on a podcast in 2018 and gave it a long, glowing review. I’ve been meaning to watch it ever since. Thanks for the push, Sight and Sound!
