  1. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Limite

    First and only film of a 22 years old director. Amazing.

  2. dionysus67's rating of the film Limite

    There is plenty to admire in the long neglected gem from the silent era. For one thing there is great virtuosity in the types of shots used and the way the camera toys with perspective. Its low-angle shots of fishermen brim with lyricism, the extreme close-ups spiritualize matter and if the narrative is, overall, rather tepid the beauty of the venture makes for a splendid cinematic experience.

  3. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Limite

    Even harder to follow than A Page of Madness, and a bit like homework. But use your eyes: the imagery is not simply beautiful, but evocative, a stream of visual cues about painful entrapment set against a natural world that feels boundless. Each reeling shot—which direction is up?—feels both inscrutable and deliberate. Tack on another star if you, unlike me, think obscure poetic narrative is why god invented cameras.

  4. Jason's rating of the film Limite

    They amazingly-not-vanished-into-the-ether LIMITE is a real cinematic UFO, God bless it. One of those movies - and one from what were still the anything-seems-possible early days - that seems to have been hatched in the head of a visionary, independent of obvious influence. That being said: the origination of the film in a magazine photo Peixoto saw in Paris in '29 does speak to a presiding air of Frenchness.

  5. JanaMat's rating of the film Limite

    We're all in the same boat.

  6. Paula Toni's rating of the film Limite

    visto na cinemateca que pegou fogo aliás hoje de manhã

  7. Erik F.'s rating of the film Limite

  8. Stephane Tanaka's rating of the film Limite

    I finally understood why it is cult. Very original shots and style for that time

  9. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Limite

    Some very strong imagery, but stops to smell the dandelions far too often and I couldn't make heads or tails out of what was going on.

  10. El Biffo's rating of the film Limite

    All I can say is I don't know what to say about this silent, avant-grade film. You better watch it for yourself, and you tell me!

  11. Scott Barley's rating of the film Limite

  12. Abdul Malik's rating of the film Limite

    `Not the best "It's mdinight what do I watch" movie. But fantastic, all told.

  13. Cavale's rating of the film Limite

    Despite this film being 80 years old, it felt very present, and I felt present as well...

  14. Sergio Lopez's rating of the film Limite

  15. R. .'s rating of the film Limite

  16. Rodrigo's rating of the film Limite

    Considerado o melhor filme brasileiro de todos os tempos, é um mergulho profundo nos questionamentos e angústias dos homens. Mostra a história de 3 pessoas q estão à deriva num barco, e fazendo um retrospectiva de suas vidas. O filme é cheio de metáforas e simbolismos q mexem muito c a gente. MUITO BOM!!!

  17. chanandre's rating of the film Limite

    One of the best films i've ever seen.

  18. Narda's rating of the film Limite

    You're right, it's almost 2 hours. An evidence of its poor reputation is that in 1960 G. Sadoul reached Rio, in his Brazilian trip, only to see this film. But he couldn't see it because it was undergoing restoration, that lasted two decades

  19. Low's rating of the film Limite

    Beautiful. I hope Criterion or Eureka is releasing this.

  20. HenriqueA's rating of the film Limite

    It's a masterpiece. But you NEED to watch it with time and mind totally devoted to it, because it is a very freaking slow movie, though a rewarding one! The cinematography is very, very good.

  21. Walberto's rating of the film Limite

    A remarkable film. I think this film could be compared to that of the poetic cinema of Dovzhenko.
