News & Interviews for Judex
Critic Reviews for Judex
Nostalgic homage to Louis Feuillade's silent serials.
...an entirely ineffective curiosity that's best left forgotten.
In shaving off 210 minutes or so, Franju eliminates all the backstory along with any concern for motivation or logic.
Franju's lack of serious coaching in the acting department shows how little he cared for things like motivation and subtlety. Instead he gets his kicks fashioning surreal set pieces that transcend the melodrama that the plot seems designed to support.
Audience Reviews for Judex
has a lot of fun with feuillade's silent serial hero judex who is like the french batman. wears disguises, lives in an awesome secret lair, uses many gadgets. the story is pretty ludicrous but it's faithful to the spirit of the serials in that everyone takes it very seriously. campy as hell
