Otto Preminger United States, 1944

Duarte Lima's rating of the film Laura

the greatest image comes from the great power of love. it seduces you, embraces you, creates you, manipulates you. there are only superfluous characters in this film, characters that only derive from laura's love/power over them, yet they ascend by creating they're own impressionist impression from this femme fatale. laura isn't just imagery, it's life, and ultimately, death.
