    plato's cave baby, plato's cave. uff listen, i want to keep this at the 4.5 rating i've kept it at honorarily since first seeing it at the tender age of maybe 15 (by Netflix mail service)...it's breathtakingly beautiful to witness unfold (thanks vittorio!), the synchronicity between its visual storytelling and its socio/political allegory is all fine as well as dandy, jean louis looks like if looks could kill, dominique too obviously, it unfolds with the tragic grandeur of a classic…

    a movie manufactured to make me cry, and manufactured well. did not care for how it took royalty to get the townsfolk to stop pelting cabbages at humble william, but then i remembered our current state of affairs. nothing has changed, people go gaga over the well heeled even if it means their ignorant complacency. no one believes in miracles until they happen regardless of their belief. as a rich hating drunk tho i merrily choose the losers, they are more fun.

    have never felt so adrift watching a film. took me two nights and this afternoon to finish this and on the face of it that sounds bad but it was a completely enjoyable even life-like distance i felt from the goings-on here. Yang is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. his plots don't have to be terribly engaging (i could not follow this in the slightest! but i usually get lost in that regard on initial encounters with mesmerizing stuff like this) because the images he chooses say so much already and on top of that the actors here similarly do a lot with a little.
