Bergman, Haneke, Lynch, Kieslowski, PTA, Kubrick, Von Trier, Tarkovsky, Kurosawa
The whole thing got me sweating. The audience is trapped in a square in which it cannot look anywhere else that isnt Saul, from the begining we follow Saul and the camera only moves when he moves. The third act of the movie got my eyes glued to the screen in ways ive never seen before in a movie.
And how is it possible that this is a directorial debut?
Started watching this at night and finished the movie in the morning, the true way to experience it.
This is the best black and white ive seen, every frame, every second is so perfect. Every line of dialogue is important theres not a second wasted in this movie. The theme of the movie is purely existential, about the alienation of people, telling a story from the past that reflects in the present.
Ps: Monica Vitti is so hot in this movie
