Madeline's Madeline

Réalisé par Josephine Decker
États-Unis, 2018


La jeune Madeline, 16 ans, rejoint une troupe de théâtre expérimentale. Poussée par une ambitieuse metteuse en scène, elle tire de sa relation problématique avec sa mère et de son monde intérieur riche, une performance pour l’art collectif. Quitte à flouter les lignes entre réalité et théâtre.

Madeline's Madeline Réalisé par Josephine Decker
It takes nothing for granted; it doesn’t record performances and deliver a story but seems to reinvent the very material of its existence . . . as it unfolds onscreen. It also heralds the arrival of a great actor, Helena Howard, who was a teen-ager when the film was made . . . it’s simply one of the most powerful, inventive, and daring performances by a teen-ager that I’ve ever seen.

Decker invents (especially here, though it was already present in her previous films) an entirely new formal language, to express an entirely new sort of subjectivity, here embodied in her teenaged protagonist Madeline (the utterly brilliant an remarkable Helena Howard).

Madeline’s (and Howard’s) incredible performance, matched to a turbulent storyline and expressionist, intimate camerawork—recalling the haptic style often employed by the Harvard Sensory Lab for experiential documentaries such as Leviathan or Somniloquies—makes us question who the “real” self is, and what the real story here is. Our bewilderment as viewers is not taken for granted, but stimulated with formal elements typical of Decker’s filmography.
