What Is an Auteur?


A woman is hired to transcribe an ancient Chinese manuscript. She finds that little by little, the manuscript has powers that begin to take over her life.

Vår mening

Curses and endless night engulf this hypnotic film and the drifting woman at its center. One of the great New York filmmakers of the “No Wave” generation, the feature debut by Sara Driver is a jagged maze of puzzles with an irresistible dreamlike flow. Featuring cinematography by Jim Jarmusch!

Anmeldelser fra kritikere

The resulting portrait is of a city that’s as beautifully impenetrable as an ancient Chinese scroll.

Working without a net — and, indeed, with a tightrope that only functions as long as we don’t look at it too closely — Driver invites us to enter her nocturnal fun house, and to close the door firmly behind us. For spectators willing to accept her dare, the movie offers a singular array of thrills and enchantments.
