    "Drive me to the cemetery!" "Can you pay?"

  2. dionysus67's rating of the film The Wagoner

    Austere film about Senegal's postcolonial fate told through the daily routine of a wagoner. The segregation between the shanty town and the middle-class French district is portrayed with assured political bite, coupled to the realism of deprivation of locals and the 'resourcefulness' of the wagoner. The harsh reality of poverty finds momentary refuge in the ancestral spirit in what is a cinema verité political cry.

    A beautiful slice of life.

  9. caitiello's rating of the film The Wagoner

    This was a cool movie. I'm in no way knowledgable enough about the director, culture, or time period to evaluate it but I liked watching it.

  11. PSFR's rating of the film The Wagoner

    Sembène's style of filmmaking seems much more suited to this narrative than La Noire de... Feels as though the story could be ancient but the understated acting + camerawork (almost documentary like with the voiceover/dubbing) brought it into the modern world.

  12. Coheed 2.5's rating of the film The Wagoner

    Good to hear this is being restored by the World Cinema Foundation this year. Anyone who wants to see it though, find the 2 disc DVD set "Cinema 16: World Short Films".
