    A sad and truthful tale of unhappiness

    Beyond the varnish of a paranoid thriller lies something even more potent than the heady vapors of such a solvent. Paranoia always seemed to me like an insatiable beast, that hunts you down from every corner of your life, and from which it’s hard to run away. But this beast, like most of them, is just a distraction. In this case, a distraction of the mind. Because if it’s near impossible to run…

    And cinema happened.

    In a darkened room, a man sits in an armchair to contemplate a picture. The picture is still. And so the man falls asleep.

    The picture isn’t only still physically, it is still on a more metaphysical level. It showcases the stillness of death, for it’s a portrait of a dead woman. Her name was Laura. But what cinema can do is show you a dead person breathing, smiling, laughing, crying, fighting. In one oxymoron, show you…

    don't act like you don't know, so I won't act like I knew all along... but I did act, I did pretend, every step of the way

    I'm not too sure anymore if I ever was a character or the actor pretending to be a character, it's hard to tell in the midst of all the lies, but you did had blue eyes, so that's something

    at least for a brief moment, the two strangers who didn't even know themselves had something real

    A painting is a doorway to the past.

Although fate gave her independence from her husband, she seeks a more complete independence from his family. Having lived her husband’s life, and now her family-in-law’s life, she wants to live a life of her own.

    Fortunately, she has a small annuity through a previous investment. And so she leaves…

    Death, all the way.

    When the film ends, an absence makes itself noticeable. There is no The End title card. Although it would disappear in the years to come, its use was still prevalent in Hollywood cinema of this period. And yet, it’s not there.

    Everything about this film feels terminal. It’s hard to watch it without grieving eyes. Clark Gable died less than two weeks after the shoot finished. The sorrow of his death might have shrouded the editing…
