Renton47's rating of the film Murder à la Mod

What's most startling is the way so many thematic concepts are already fully realised in 'La Mod'. The short leap from photography to death, the eradication of the self by the image. Closer to the embodiment of cinema as smut than later works. Exhausting even at 80 minutes, the structure now feels worn to us who had to live through the 90's. An essential artifact no less.
