Critic Reviews for In the Intense Now

  • Alternately engaging and a bit muddled, the film looks at the years 1966-68 as seen in China; in France, with the May 1968 student uprising; and in Czechoslovakia, with the Soviet invasion, three months later, and its aftermath.

  • In the end, the political confusions of Salles's movie, which seem all of a piece with the political confusions of that era, sit small beside its achievement as a document of an incendiary time.

    April 27, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • The combination of archival bounty with Salles' touching analysis has a hypnotic effect, serving up the past plus reflection, garnished with a resonant melancholy about the ebb and flow of uprisings.

    April 19, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Moreira Salles's found-footage study of revolutionaries in the streets of Paris, Prague, and other countries in 1968 would stand as an invaluable assemblage simply on the basis of its archival finds alone.

    February 1, 2018 | Full Review…
  • A bittersweet, ruminative documentary essay composed of footage from the era accompanied by thoughtful, disarmingly personal voice-over narration.

    January 30, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Although João Moreira Salles tries to tap into the pleasurable elements inherent to the essayistic as a cinematic form, such as making the merging of intimate and social reality poetically visible, his storylines never quite gel.
