EdieEmm's rating of the film Les hautes solitudes

Time + camera as psychic scalpel. An emotional autopsy in bas relief. Jean Seberg's face as screen for an exhibit of sadnesses not yet hardened into strata, vying for position, surfacing & being reabsorbed; a parade of disappointments. Life. (And what's a screen if not a mirror?) And the rest? An aestheticization of the arbitrary? Beautiful shots of beautiful people. Maybe it could've been anything... 3.5
