Ce que vous en pensez

  • josé neves's rating of the film Man on Horseback

    35mm. The problem with this filmmaker is that his immense culture doesn't keep up with similar filmmaking capacity and films are less in relation to their starting points. From enormous literary works, by Yourcenar, Grass, Musil, Heinrich Böll or Kleist (and some of my favorite books), he don't find a language of kinetographic autonomy and/or identity, like those writers found their own in the literary expression.
