Whispering Pages (1993)
Critic Reviews for Whispering Pages
Mostly there is extraordinary photography, a palette of dusty gray tones that echo the faded look of 19th-century photographs.
It's an art film that makes as little concession as possible to mass tastes. But if you accept that oddness, Whispering Pages can be a subtly beautiful and rewarding experience.
Fans of abstract helmer Aleksandr Sokurov will find much to admire in Whispering Pages, a mesmeric journey through 19th-century Russian literary themes that looks like Dostoevsky on acid. Most other auds will head for the exit fast.
It's the only film I've seen by this lugubrious Tarkovsky disciple that profits from second viewing, thanks to its kaleidoscopic, painterly pleasures.
