|À bout de souffle
A real journey into the heart of darkness.
A game-changer and a birth of a (sub-)genre.
A game-changer and a birth of a genius.
Night on Earth
Because we tend to neglect those who 'serve' us and those to whom we serve.
Atlantic City, U.S.A.
Because humanity can be found even in the absolute decay.
Never the loss and the pain have been portrayed so beautifully, neither before, nor since.
We can go the sensationalist way and call ones monsters, or we could just try to understand.
We are allowed to be sentimental and warm-hearted about our childhood, even if it was set in the darkest of times.
À bout de souffle
A woman and a gun…
This is just a personal choice, with self-set boundaries, in a particular moment of time. It is not a 'list'-list, cinema is not athletics to be measured by meters and seconds, not even on the most exact level of craft which would be just one of the components in the process. This challenge was a game, an opportunity to express my passing thoughts and an honour to be considered equal to the greatest thinkers on film of today.
