Salome Directed by Werner Schroeter

  • José Neves's rating of the film Salome

    Along with Carmelo Bene and Téo Hernandez versions, an intense cinematic look at the play and the myth. Through a small number of sequence-shots, with pans and zooms, the one décor and History are submited to processes of transfiguration and ritualization. The final shot in which Herod (the sublime Montezuma) crosses the space and reach the mouth of the scene to scream the death curse is seminal. Like a spell on us.
