Brecht said drama should always be performed with the house lights up so that that the spectator never forgot he was watching a play. Rappaport wants to remind us how artificial realism is, and how unreal our lives are.

  • José Neves's rating of the film Imposters

    When the farce is so much exposed and revealed, wanting to be funnier than wit itself, something gets lost in that far-fetched signs of accumulation, including the joke. There is, however, an approximation to the figurative universe of some Jacques Rivette, namely "Céline et Julie ...", which, through that involuntary memory, makes it entertaining.
