i've read a few reviews of this film and i think some of the critics fell for mr d'ambrose's traps; it could be because, i think, one must be able to read everything.
there are films i thought i could describe as being 'devilish' when recommending them to others - or when i could not explain to my own self why i felt a bit ill after viewing them.
mr d'ambrose walks a tightrope and, in my opinion, more than succeeds.
in my mind 'the pawnbroker' is the beginning of a dark trilogy; the other two pieces being 'prince of the city' and 'serpico'.
the three films concern themselves with the idea of money; what it represents and how its influence pulls those who seek after it into dehumanizing, destructive orbits.
mr. steiger's performance is top-notch.
the previously unreleased and handsomely filmed portion of benjamin durden's stay here on earth.
"the only way to be happy is to love.
unless you love,
your life will flash by.
do good to them.
till the end of time."
a more perfect ending could not be engineered, but, noooo, let's keep going! sheesh... i stopped a few minutes after that.
two stars for photography.
'Koyaanisqatsi' is a singular work which has no equal.
no matter how times i have seen the trilogy there comes a point, when viewing any one of the films, where i become terrified.
