Wendy and Lucy

Kelly Reichardt États-Unis, 2008

Levi Miah's rating of the film Wendy et Lucy

There's something about 16mm American indie that exudes a familiar nostalgia for me even though I'm not from there. In these deep greens and hazy orange glows is possibly the finest pairing of woman (or man) and dog ever on screen. Contextualized within the rapid economic decline of 2008 - minimalist and realist - this subtley bleak slice-of-life shows the true heartache of living within modern capitalism.
