Historias extraordinarias

Mariano Llinás Argentina, 2008

Eric Rucker's rating of the film Extraordinary Stories

How pleasurable it was to enjoy the pleasures of narrative instead of watching cardboard figures marched around a plastic game board track. What a joy to simply watch people and faces move, respecting the secrets they house, no coercion from superficial miming pegged to story "beats". What a pleasure to watch the images just for themselves. What a pleasure just to feel pleasure. But, too many men, not enough women!
