    Portrait of a Lady on Fire


    Assim como as grandes histórias de amor fazem, Retrato de Uma Jovem em Chamas é uma obra-prima que te completa e conforta no mesmo tempo em que te destrói, da forma mais tragicamente bela possível.

    Uma pintura nunca nos deixa vê-la por completo, pois não podemos compreender as tantas camadas e pinceladas escondidas em seu processo, na sua linha temporal de existência. Não compreendemos o que a faz única e irreproduzível: seu mistério. Há uma aura que turva a visão…

    I have a very personal affection for grief stories and how they choose to portray this process. This was claustrophobic and lyrical when free.

    For me, Personal Shopper was a completely immersive study of a character afraid of being herself through her desires, trapped in her, and others, routine. There were times that I could definitely relate to Maureen and her feelings, it was such a necessity for me to meet her and follow her story till the end.

    I've never seen Kristen Stewart this good, she really is the piece that makes everything in Personal Shopper moves correctly and fluently.
