There's an unlovely self-importance to Sokurov's droning diatribe that rather distracts from the cultural significance of the subject.November 13, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
In praise of art, but also a reminder that we need to treasure what we have.November 11, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
This is graceful and provocative filmmaking. It works both as art history and as an account of wartime Paris under German occupation.
By turns baffling, disturbing, moving and provocative, Alexander Sokurov's dreamy documentary stimulates the heart and head, just as it tests the limits of descriptive analysis.
Impossible to appreciate in a single sitting, this masterly piece of polemical filmmaking is as intoxicating as it is intriguing.
In the end, the film suffers from cultural overload.October 6, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
