    The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial


    Disparado o melhor dos três filmes de tribunal que eu vi dirigidos pelo William Friedkin (ainda me falta o Rules of Engagement) e também o seu melhor trabalho em 20 anos (e só não digo 30 ou 40 porque The Hunted foi o que saiu de melhor no cinema do século XXI).

    The Hunted


    When we get to the knife combat, there is no surprise in the way Friedkin approaches the scene, as his filmmaking is about constant conflict and there is not one moment in the film when interactions cease to be aggressive, even in the most banal communication between characters. All scenes are connected in a way that makes violent action incessant (just see the way flashbacks are presented) and the very open spaces in which these men have to operate are detailed only by their relation to it and how this will lead to brutal confrontation between them. Everything leads to self-destruction.
