Are you only basing this on THE HYPOTHESIS OF THE STOLEN PAINTING and COLLOQUE DE CHIENS (which you favourited)?
I've never been so bored by a skilled, prolific, individual (but still unbearably boring) auteur.
I really liked Dog's Dialogue but I'm not sure why I favorited the former. I fell into a deep sleep while watching that. I've seen about three other of his films, all with things that I really didn't like. To me, they're just pure surface--all intellect and pretty pictures. I'm so unmoved by them. But he does have a vision, so it's fine if other people are genuinely interested.
I've Night Across the Street and Mysteries of Lisbon. The former was pretty awful to me. The latter had some moments of genuine emotion and beauty but eventually ended up being like Night Across the Street--just pretty pictures. Maybe I'll check out Three Crowns in the future, since I haven't seen it yet.
His body of work is the same hall of mirrors that he creates in every film. I could (and will) explore it forever.
“If you can make it complicated, why make it simple?” This quote from him is part of what frustrates me about him. It sounds like something a bureaucrat would say.
