Audience Reviews for Moi, un Noir

Herzog like psuedo-cinema verite where the staged, improvised, and written freely flow into one another, but with a more Ethographic bent, becasue Ethnography is Rouch's background and main cinematic theme. Interconnecting stories are ocassionally difficult to sort out ocassionally, the voice over narration of the three different characters and te narrator are sporadically inspired but sometimes dull. The shots of beer halls and bars are impressive and the portion of the film that stands out most in my mind. An interesting look at the African coast in the late 50's, that could have used more narrative cohesion between it's real and dramatic events.
