Point de fuite

Raúl Ruiz Portugal, 1984

DrFirestone's rating of the film Vanishing Point

I recommend watching "City of Pirates" first. While this is a valid film on its own, it definitely is interesting to see how these two are alternate versions of the same feverish dream - so similar and different at the same time. The improvised visual style adds to the mood, it's spiced with a humour of strange kind, which is as surreal as the whole experience. The English dialogues are hard to understand at times.
