What Got This Director Here?: Shoah.
My Favorite Past Experience Was…: Shoah.
What Did I Watch: The Karski Report.
Where Does He Fit: The Karski Report is just another offshoot of Lanzmann’s most awful of projects. He has always been perhaps too fond of utilizing his own voice to emphasize the difference between himself and the subject he is interviewing, resulting in this 48 minute interview feeling just as exhausting as any of the footage we saw over the hours and hours of Shoah. Karski himself views the Holocaust in some awful, different way that hurts all of us nevertheless, a study in recognizing evil and responding.
Most Valuable Asset: The footage.
Most Excited For: Last of the Unjust.
Did They Deserve a Spot?: Yes.
Coming Up Next: Writer-director Eric Rohmer.
