Critic Reviews for Black Sun
Hughes talks about how his brain continued making films in his head (I wish I had seen that movie instead).
De Montalembert's achievements are inspiring and Tarn,who also composed the score, has found a terrific filmic correlation.I'm not certain this documentary will be for everyone, but it doespresent a compelling tale in an unusual manner.
It is incomprehensible that such an amazing story could be the foundation of such a boring and inept film.
