Rapid Life ★★★★★

Modernity collapsing amidst an already-collapsed romanticism. What will be left?

I am plagued, as we all are, by my phone when I watch films at home (the only place I can watch anything that isn’t multiplex fare), but during this film’s runtime the thought of picking up my phone never crossed my mind. I was totally and completely captivated.

Borges was right in “Pierre Menard.” There are no new techniques, here. It is in its recontextualization of silent cinema that this film proves brilliant.
