Goha is devoid of technical virtuosity. It had to be, for Goha is pre-eminently anti-Figaro. Pointless to use a complicated tracking shot to follow him to the market-place. Pointless to use erudite compositions when he and his ass learn from doctors that truth is both abrasive and slippery. The sort of flashy direction rather too much in vogue today would have brought nothing to Goha but less sincerity.
