  1. Royce Jr.'s rating of the film Eyes Do Not Want to Close at All Times, or, Perhaps One Day Rome Will Allow Herself to Choose in Her Turn

  2. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Eyes Do Not Want to Close at All Times, or, Perhaps One Day Rome Will Allow Herself to Choose in Her Turn

    Straub-Huillet created a fascinating look at Roman history that is as confounding as it is brilliant!

  3. Marc St-Cyr (Death cinéphilia)'s rating of the film Eyes Do Not Want to Close at All Times, or, Perhaps One Day Rome Will Allow Herself to Choose in Her Turn

    One of the most singular work i've seen this summer! But, i feel uncomfortable, because i don't know what to think about it. The film is so « theatrical » that i could dislike it. But, the couple knew how to use the '' dispositifs'' of cinema to narrate that classical in a bold way (fast editing, Jump-cut, ancient location, the city or persistence of past in present, landscape, voice-over, shot-reversed shot, etc.)

  4. Ostermyers's rating of the film Eyes Do Not Want to Close at All Times, or, Perhaps One Day Rome Will Allow Herself to Choose in Her Turn

    I don't know where is cinema and where is theatre...I like both anyway. Alexandrin are hard tho.

  5. Stefan Y's rating of the film Eyes Do Not Want to Close at All Times, or, Perhaps One Day Rome Will Allow Herself to Choose in Her Turn

    This is a violent, violent film, like what Zizek means when he says that Gandhi was more violent than Hitler. This is violence done to power relations, violence done to desires, violence done to ideas of performance.

  6. João Eça's rating of the film Eyes Do Not Want to Close at All Times, or, Perhaps One Day Rome Will Allow Herself to Choose in Her Turn

    The actors seemed to be racing each other, each trying to say the text faster than the other. "Othon" is one of the most naif films I've watched: it's the opposite of Oliveira's literary adaptations. There is no cinema here, no violence, no drama. Even the words lose their power with such bad acting, mise-en-scène and camera work.

  7. Neil Bahadur's rating of the film Eyes Do Not Want to Close at All Times, or, Perhaps One Day Rome Will Allow Herself to Choose in Her Turn

  8. Miguel Ferreira's rating of the film Eyes Do Not Want to Close at All Times, or, Perhaps One Day Rome Will Allow Herself to Choose in Her Turn

    PUNK-CINEMA. Violence of language + a certain 'yesterday as today' feeling - in a direct way, traffic passing by, the noises, buildings; indirectly the games of power, relationships of hatred. Each shot falls upon the viewer with a strenght completely different of that from the shock-films. It captivates you, doesn't make you look away. Othon is mystic as only few movies are.
