Lettre de Sibérie

Chris Marker France, 1957

Jason's rating of the film Letter from Siberia

Marker at his best (as he is here) is an artist of such commitment and vision, so utterly possessed of genius, conducting pure magic w/ verve and ease, that I truly feel like warnings should be attached to his films: beware, prospective viewer! having watched this film you will very likely come to realize that no art you are ever able to create will possess a germ of comparable worth. Bow in reverence.
