[Director] Marker may be windy, but he also enjoys the wisdom that comes with age. His masterful command of the camera shows that he can lecture and entertain at the same time.
The Case of the Grinning Cat is further evidence of Chris Marker's exhilarating wit. His hour-long cinema essay offers a snapshot of France that's been realized in Marker's daydreamy developer fluid.
Demonstrates that this cinematic provocateur [director Chris Marker] has lost little of his gift for social observation.
The Case Of The Grinning Cat is a sequel of sorts to Marker's epic three-hour 1977 documentary on the decline of the left, A Grin Without A Cat -- though this new work is both shorter and more playful.
In The Case of the Grinning Cat, the filmmaker Chris Marker fluidly moves over and under Paris, capturing images of fugitive beauty and pathos.
Leave it to Chris Marker, the 85-year-old French documentarian and cineaste hero, to take an unexceptional event and turn it into an exceptional film.
A playful 58-minute documentary.
Feels like Marker's attempt to implicitly reconcile his own advanced age...one is bound to see history repeat itself in full, ignorant swing, if one lives long enough.
Organic and overflowing with ideas... Marker's even-handedness and playful spirit show that innocent art and activist politics are two sides of the same culture... this whimsical winner cannot be pigeonholed.
vivé le chat!
Marker brings a light, puckish touch.
Modestly eschewing declarative organization, Marker's interest in and presentation of information is strictly pointillist.
