Jerzy Skolimowski (born May 5, 1938) is a Polish film director, screenwriter, dramatist and actor. A graduate of the prestigious Polish Film School in Łódź, Skolimowski has directed more than twenty films since his 1960 début Oko wykol (The Menacing Eye). He lived in Los Angeles where he painted in a figurative, expressionist mode and acted occasionally in films. More recently, he began dividing his time between the US and Poland and returned to film making as a writer and director after a 17 year hiatus with Four Nights With Anna (Cztery noce z Anna) in 2008.
it's never ending. i've watched it and felt like the end was left aside, still in progress, in hot debate, in an incipient phase of being conceptualized, shyly dabbed at. i watch it again and it still has no end. it refuses it, as if conventional structure and circularity of plot is naive and can be cast off with the natural and necessary gesture of a snake shedding its skin.
