  3. sodr2's rating of the film Illumination

    Dumb movie thinks it's smarter than it actually is.

  4. nouvelle vague 1960's rating of the film Illumination

    "Illumination" is one of those films that needs to be seen more then once.On the surface,its the simple story of a man's life,but director Krzysztof Zanussi isn't interested in the straightforward account of a life.He blends fiction with documentary, to give us an existentialist view of a life,through the thoughts of a individual. A difficult, but intriguing film,that on occasions delves into the surreal.

  5. Louisa Savignon's rating of the film Illumination

    3.5 // CRAZE annoying score! sad resignation feeling in the end *heartbroke*beautiful

  6. Ben Dooley's rating of the film Illumination

    A simple, episodic life-story of a young man, that sets his initial belief in the study of science as the means to true knowledge against the rest of what he sees and experiences, including factory labour, marriage, 70s drug culture, electro-shock therapy, a monastery with dead bodies and glimpses of war. It has the myopic individualism of Wenders, but in Communist Poland this arguably has a political value.

  7. khosrow's rating of the film Illumination

    stranger and the best sound acting and editing

  8. Jinsie's rating of the film Illumination

    A film chronicling an empiricist's search for the spiritual; indeed, Zanussi questions if the distinction even exists.

  9. CafeGradiva's rating of the film Illumination

  10. JM M----'s rating of the film Illumination

    A Coen Bros film without all the deadpan and absurdist humor. The endless unknowable way in which we stumble through this life looking for meaning in its hay stack.

  11. E AP's rating of the film Illumination

    Science, like life, is messy stuff.
