josé neves's rating of the film Maldone

4,5. 35mm, rewatch. A Marxist variation of doppelgänger: the proletarian is the one who kills his reflection of great bourgeois in the mirror and resumes his previous life of a free bum, a kind of "Boudoux qui retourne aux eaux", libertarian, anti-bourgeois. The images follow the agony and vertigo of the protagonist, as only non-talkies cinema made it: rising it in a pictorial free composition, towards the whirlwind.
