"I'll be your mirror, reflect what you are" Alos captures the human experience in this well edited selection of scenes from contemporary and classic cinema. From birth to death encompassing love, pain, sex, pleasure, child rearing, madness, transcendence, etc etc etc. The gimmick takes a bit to take hold but once it does this is candy for the cineaste. The 'tears' sequence is masterful.
If I had to choose one film to which I'd apply that overused expression of "pretentious", this would be it. Clips from movies strung together in an incoherent, repetitive chore, made by someone so obsessed with herself it's not even funny. If this were a 15-20 minute film, maybe this would've been somewhat moving...at an hour and 41 minutes, it's just a painful slog.
Umm......difficult one. First, although this movie depicts director's self-portrait through footage of movies which maybe she've watched, strangely I feel this movie's highly personal & deeply touching (I cry a little). But gradually this movie becomes ordinary flatterer shouting out "Movie is wonderful !" "I love movies !" "Sex in movie is miracle !" etc....that makes me killjoy. So former great, latter not good.
Apropiación que remite al fracaso, la castración maternal, búsqueda de identidad, los tropiezos con el ejercicio de la sexualidad temprana, miedo a lo impreciso, pérdida de la individualidad producto de los fallos en el proceso de formación de identidad y la adolescencia tardía que llevan a una inevitable aceptación personal. Empatía, intimidad y apropiación.
