@ZHULIA This would probably be a good explanation why he did his movie this way: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61jk-JDEqes It's a discussion with him during the Venice Film Festival.
A flawed but still fascinating Japanese film by Iranian director Amir Naderi: in order to pay off the debts of his recently murdered brother a Tokyo cinephile, who organizes guerilla screenings of classics on the rooftop of his apartment house, becomes the punching bag for a yakuza gang. Highly repetitive and hard to stomach, "Cut" is way too long, but still impresses as a solid work by a maverick director.
Frederick Wiseman says CUT is a "beautifully made, well thought out, superbly edited film... I have great admiration for his work." Michel Ciment calls CUT "one of the most original films ever made... An exceptional, original, and exciting film." Alberto Barbera says CUT is "the most surprising film I've seen in the last years. It's the most passionate... It's just a masterpiece!" Videos at http://bit.ly/ytcut
I see what the director wanted to say, but he said it in all the wrong (and BORING!) way. Film is both art and entertainment? So why is his film so slow-paced and the opposite of entertaining, with a guy getting punches on the face for the whole 2 hours? It's a pity because the first minutes of the film are really great, but then when the real story kicks off, it gets annoyingly repetitive.
CUT will be the Opening Film of Orizzonti at the 68the Venice International Film Festival. Announced on http://labiennale.org Article URL: http://labiennale.org/en/cinema/news/orizzonti-2011.html
