Great film, but audio and video quality of this digital copy are downright abhorrent. Same with Queen of Diamonds, sadly. I am glad to say that two other Menkes films on MUBI, Phantom Love and Sadness of Zohara, have much better transfers, and are definitely worth watching. Now I'm just hoping that her latest film Dissolution will be avaible on MUBI eventually.
a film that i found very challenging on many levels. The Bloody Child is structured to show a horrific event in reverse, and where the main character's subconscious / inner psyche is paralleled within the film to reveal an interior, greater, non verbal truth. this is true filmmaking that expands the visual vocabulary..
