  1. Ludovic72's rating of the film Level Five

    Chris Marker a construit un objet déconcertant qu'on pourrait qualifier de "docu-fiction poético-informatique", à la lisière de l'installation muséale. A la fois intime et historique, il parle de mémoire et d'oubli, de réel et de virtuel, de dicible et d'indicible. Il se perd en fragmentations et images de synthèse, se recentre en monologues adressés à la caméra... Une expérience étrange, exigeante et passionnante.

  5. Nabil Hamzaki's rating of the film Level Five

    "Storing the past so as not to revive it was sheer 20th century."

  6. lou.'s rating of the film Level Five

    How wonderful it is! {I need time to say something could fit the inner beauty of the movie}

  7. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Level Five

    Could Chris Marker secretly be one of the greatest video game theorists of all time? Its views on the new digital art are both breathtakingly visionary and hopelessly antiquated, with little progress compared to Sans Soleil. Yet its reflexion on the mangling of history through abstract interactivity (or the illusion of) is more important than ever. No game can transpose Okinawa, but then again, no art form can.

  8. Paul Rot's rating of the film Level Five

    Chris Marker is a genius. And humankind is the most horrible thing ever created. Thank you MUBI for sharing.

  11. Joaquín Font's rating of the film Level Five

    ¿Quién rinde testimonio por los testigos?

  12. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Level Five

    Very original approach and narrative. A gem from the 90's, an experimental effort from the beginning (and we're still at the beginning) comprehension on how historical images and events sticks and breathes into the A.I. The killing (like war) of human feelings?

  13. ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Level Five

    Kind of hard to love a film about death, memory and lies when its central suicidal character is treated like a real person in spite of her being fictional. It's even more ironic considering how she herself comments on art's inability to capture death.

  14. Bilouaustria's rating of the film Level Five

    Marker creates the cinema of the future, composed of living images dancing around dead ones (and it looks somehow like Godard´s "Histoire(s) du cinéma" released one year later). The film essay about Okinawa is one of Marker´s finest work but the fictional counterpoint, with Laura talking to the camera, is for sure the weak side of "Level Five". Why include so much artificiality into this ? Amazing editing as usual.

  15. matelot's rating of the film Level Five

  16. DSPRKY's rating of the film Level Five

    Another enticing film essay by Marker that of course feels seminal now in the age of personal digital assistants and machine learning hype. The choice to juxtapose this discussion with the history of Okinawa seems wrong at first, but somehow it works, and the resulting depiction of memory and collective guilt is a fitting counterpoint to the discussion of the proto-Internet.

  17. FISCHER's rating of the film Level Five

    Un chef-d'oeuvre foisonnant de richesses et de vérités humaines... www.cinefiches.com

  18. kiptok's rating of the film Level Five

    this feels too old now to actually resonate or feel so insightful in 2017. and how generous are we lately w/ calling things prescient or prophetic? the 'dialogue' was good. maybe would've worked better if i saw it at the time. i was 6

  19. Smaro Papaevangelou's rating of the film Level Five

  20. Nachtreich's rating of the film Level Five

  21. EdieEmm's rating of the film Level Five

    Interesting meditation on the socially-mediated nature of subjectivity and "truth". Beautifully edited, with thoughtful and immersive audio-visual composition. Still, the film felt flat and strangely unengaging. Too literal, perhaps; no work left for intuition. Too cynical; each subject's reliability systematically found lacking... Not my favourite Marker. Do, though, love the description: "Documentary, Romance".

  22. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Level Five

    Cinematic poem about the war. The presence of beautiful Catherine BELKHODJA prevents falling into the black sadness, the dark depression that bathes this movie .... Poème cinématographique sur la guerre. La présence de la belle Catherine BELKHODJA empêche de tomber dans la noire tristesse, la sombre dépression qui baigne ce film.
