  1. captainfez's rating of the film Genealogies of a Crime

    If only the slapping administered sense. Or unconsciousness.

  2. Jason's rating of the film Genealogies of a Crime

    In late youth / early adulthood my experience of the many riches of world cinema for the most part involved watching VHS tapes whilst drinking bourbon and smoking joints. Probably not surprising that in this context I was a big fan of Ruiz in general and GÉNÉALOGIES in particular. Now comparatively clear-headed, I do not experience this movies as something that enfolds me, but I still marvel at the berserk invention.

  3. NGboo's rating of the film Genealogies of a Crime

    "Truth is absorbed through the eyes", but not if you're dealing with the Franco-Belgian Psychoanalytic Society. Replete with shadows, mirrors, funerals and mind-games, "Genealogies of a Crime" is like Hitchcock meets Robbe-Grillet, but it's pretty much drenched in Ruizian dream logic.

  6. Reynaldo Goulart's rating of the film Genealogies of a Crime

    visually complex; mise-en-scène genial

  7. F.Bieberkopf's rating of the film Genealogies of a Crime

    A masterpiece by all means. Scant attention to narrative, pedantic mise en scène, a convoluted reality-fiction interplay, semblence of a murder mystery and revenge drama and yet not quite, and a brilliant Catherine Denveuve. Not much else you can ask for.

  8. msmichel's rating of the film Genealogies of a Crime

    Fascinating script by Ruiz and Bonitzer with a ravishing Deneuve game for its puzzle box structure. Deneuve is quite remarkable here but unfortunately both Piccoli and Poupaud overact this time out. Camera work and set design though subdued are interesting but its the script that sings here with its odd mix of psychology, surrealism and chamber drama. Well worth a watch but not classic Ruiz.

  9. Cole Caudle's rating of the film Genealogies of a Crime

    Very reminiscent of some Rivette with its themes of duality, reality vs. illusion, ritual and play, the impossibility of knowing the truth etc. Truly odd film that lingers.

  10. Sefer Taslı Sapık's rating of the film Genealogies of a Crime

    Go scenes are nearly as beautiful as Miss Deneuve. How i wish i could play a game with her.

  11. Addiena of Mubi land's rating of the film Genealogies of a Crime

    Catherine Deneuve is a radiance in this drama/thriller. Wanna be looking like her by the time am reaching her age.
