Leda and The Swan And how can body, laid in that white rush, But feel the strange heart beating where it lies? A shudder in the loins engenders there The broken wall, the burning roof and tower And Agamemnon dead. Being so caught up, So mastered by the brute blood of the air, Did she put on his knowledge with his power Before the indifferent beak could let her drop?
A transposição de memórias e personalidades aparece em flashes na narrativa fugaz de Guadagnino. A estética palpável, que sabe ser vibrante e amena nas horas certas, constrói um panorama de consciências, onde as imagens se formam pela colaboração. A passagem do real para o abstrato, como Bruno diz, parece ser o que todos vivemos, mas que apenas a(s) mulher(es) aprende(m) a experimentar verdadeiramente.
The first film I've seen by Luca Guadagnino and I'm already dreading the shit out of his proposed Scarface remake. Commercials, in a way, prove the visual mettle and the artistic ingenuity of filmmakers. Judging by this one, it makes me believe this Guadagnino character is a pompous idiot snob whose aesthetic influences are whatever rich people tell him are en vogue. Never trust an artist who only has 'good taste'.
I love Julianne Moore and loved "I am Love" but this left me cool despite all the beautiful costumes, having been shot on 35mm, shot composition and sumptuous locations. Perhaps it rings hollow with little to be found under the surface in a world imagined before covid-19. I would have appreciated longer runtime to set the mood and have insight into the character's inner lives.
