    "What do you know about cruelty?"

    I rewatched High Life for the new 'Views From The Vista' episode with guest Joey Izzo. You can listen here or via Apple Podcast / Stitcher / Spotify. A second viewing was helpful in my understanding of the existential prison that is Claire Denis' High Life.

    A Moment of Innocence

    ★★★★

    Six years after Close-Up we have A Moment Of Innocence, another Iranian movie steeped in metaphysical layers and using the medium of film to delve into retrospection and an evaluation of our current motives for why. There's a lucid quality, almost like Perfect Blue, how we shift from one moment, one emulated reality, to the next. Would love to see a high def re-release of a A Moment Of Innocence. Even now, some twenty odd years later, these films have impacted contemporary Iranian film, Asghar Farhadi's The Salesman and Jafar Panahi's 3 Faces center around actors.

    I first saw this in 1998 with my dad on DVD. The entire movie was uncomfortable. (I was thirteen years old.) The scene where Julianne Moore tells Mark Wahlberg that he can cum inside her was devastating. But when my dad turned to me right after her line and said, "Pretty cool, huh?" I was DEAD.
