What Got This Director Here?: Wavelength/La Region Centrale.
My Favorite Past Experience Was…: La Region Centrale.
What Did I Watch: Wavelength.
Where Does He Fit: Wavelength is easier than La Region Centrale, I suppose, but a 45 minute zoom in on a window with a few vague character scenes that don’t really tell you anything is never going to be easy. But is it worth it? Yes. I’d love to explore the dimensions and colors of this room theatrically, and hear the sound of Strawberry Fields Forever for a little while. But what I really would like is a nice clean restored print so I could feel the experience of this structural lunacy quietly driving the more casual viewers insane.
Most Valuable Asset: Camera movements or lack thereof.
Most Excited For: Corpus Callosum.
Did They Deserve a Spot?: Yes.
Coming Up Next: Michael Cimino, American obsessive.
