Audience Reviews for Les Statues Meurent Aussi

½

Well it's no surprise that a film written by Marker and edited by Resnais ends up being really good. This is an extremely intelligent film in which Marker and Resnais offers a subversive critique of colonialism by asserting that the African art is removed from its original context as everyday and ceremonial/religious objects into mummified works of art in museums, then commodified goods by western culture's fetish for that exotic otherness. The voiceover is beautifully written though a bit too dry by Marker's standards. Even if the issue of colonialism is kind of dated, the exoticization of art is still as relevant today.
