  1. verba's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    в толпе безликой появились эти лица - на чёрной влажной ветке листья.

  2. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Yikes. Bresson's film in 2017 is certainly something!

  3. Johnny Seeker's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Born into a seemingly free world, society offers us rigid patterns to live within and fullfill. What if you said no?

  4. VincentVendetta's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Bresson's work is typically one of few words, but The Devil, Probably is quite the opposite. There are now too many images, too many ideas, thrown without order or direction, to the point that he characters can no longer act on their surroundings. While it's not as great as I remembered, it will always have a place in my heart, much like there will always be a hole in my soul.

  5. EdieEmm's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Took two watches to get. Full of shots that signify meaning, without any; there is no meaning to be signified. Just meaninglessness. A continuity of detached & unrelated moments, interspersed w scenes of self & global destruction. A sombre (because Bresson) nihilistic fervor; Bresson's scathing, accusatory gaze turned to the world of the late 70s. Therapist (deadpan): "Isn't being right compensation for being alive?"

  6. tintinmugshot's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    It's one of the best movies ever made about the teen angst.

  7. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Interesting, if somewhat boring. I think the first half is meant to explore ways for the main character to find a fulfilling way of living; the church and so forth. The second half is about him coping with not finding that way, as when he sleeps in the church and thusly desecrates a holy place for lol:s. It's got a great, gritty 70's look to it. The actors doesn't feel directed as much as placed.

  8. black frank's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    as interesting the second time around as the first .. all of his films are wonderful ..they all deserve to be watched studied enjoyed

  9. Cid Medeiros's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Emotionless characters project themselves into the announcement that life is probably meaningless. Embedded into a mechanical and apathetical net of relationships, everything in the movie happens in some sort of robotic way guided by some hidden force which the narrative clearly states it’s not God or even humanity. How to even bother to kill oneself when there's no point through and through?

  10. captainfez's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    REALITY BITES with seal clubbing.

  11. maicco.ferreira's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Perfect pacing, beautiful acting, screenplay and what a dense story! Stunning masterpiece

  12. Cependant's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

  13. redux's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Well-off slackers, dressed by the French Vogue, give each other multimedia seminars about the impending Doom. They ride a bus, and it's mechanized, overregulated hell. They go see a deforestation and cover their eyes in agony. Doorknobs, teapots. Nothing left.

  14. zi's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Pretty good for a French film.

  15. Superfrog's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    À great experience as a film, that could do with deciding whether it wants us to purely witness or be pushed in a direction. A must watch all the same.

  16. BUTTAUD's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

  17. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Bresson, évidemment... Un peu moins remarquable, personnellement... Mais si direct, assurément... Indispensable, forcément... et écologiste précocement... Sauvons les pandas définitivement !

  18. filmotrope's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Bresson's style is all there and it is clear that he wants to make a direct statement in what turns out to be a very political film, but sadly his usual austerity feels a bit off with the kind of story he wants to tell, and so the result seems more pretentious than it is compelling. http://www.filmotrope.com

  19. Pierre.F's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Film génial qui est tout entier concentré vers le suicide du héros, Charles comme si le destin était écrit à l'avance et que les personnages le savaient. Style austère mais puissant et assez introspectif sans jamais tomber dans la psychologie. Au long du film, on voit se dessiner un véritable imaginaire filmique avec la récurrence de motifs comme les portes qui semble en souligner la fixation.

  20. Nicolas Centofanti's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Vrai chef-d'oeuvre doublé d'une fable écologique visionnaire que dire de plus ? qu'attendre de plus ?

  21. FISCHER's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Une oeuvre désespérante qui présente une situation dramatique du monde, "solutionnée" par une fuite radicale pouvant aller jusqu'au néant suicidaire... www.cinefiches.com

  22. DSPRKY's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    Acerbic and darkly funny, but more of a chore than Bresson's other films. Sure, the out-of-his-depth youth can make for an interesting character study, but I thought this was better handled in A Gentle Woman and L'Argent.

  23. Marjan Mar's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    "Je veux seulement avoir le droit d'être ce que je suis"

  24. Sol Petchorine's rating of the film The Devil, Probably

    _ Charles : Plus rien de politique dans ma vie, si ce n'est le refus de toutes les politiques. Je ne suis pas déprimé. Je veux seulement avoir le droit d'être ce que je suis. Je ne veux pas que l'on me force à ne plus vouloir, à remplacer mes non désirs par de faux désirs, calculés par des statistiques, des sondages, des calculs, des classifications américano-soviétiques super-connes. Je ne veux pas être un esclave.
