Pagsisiyasat sa Gabing Ayaw Lumimot

Lav Diaz ফিলিপাইন, 2012

ysbil's rating of the film An Investigation on the Night that Won’t Forget

It's such a beautiful and powerful cinematic prayer : linking up the long interview with the black and white street shots, in reverence of a dead soul, of the dead souls. The very dark images at the end seem to invite us to a mass, alert our senses and predispose us to receive the poem-prayer in tagalog. Lav Diaz is really a great sculpter of light and sound. A great moment of cinema.
