Jerry Lewis United States, 1964

José Neves's rating of the film The Patsy

Let's rave: an entire movie built on the representability of representation, before the postmodern fallacies and modernist tics, which sublimates the persona of the author-demiurge, a misunderstood victim-terrorist of a formative world with a distorting and fracturing awareness of it. In passing, Lewis reconstructs the silent cinema in 3 sequences of an absolute scenic and melodic splendor. Ah, that flashback!
