Sight & Sound is the hottest new movie I have ever seen and it is boring. i loved it for that reason

make way, come new movie canon, I clear the afternoon to be able to take on the task of delivering the new best film in history (according to a survey conducted by Sight & Sound). Remote mobile, suitable setting so as not to distract me for more than three hours that ‘follow in view’bike thief‘, ‘Citizen Kane’ and ‘Vertigo’.

So, ‘Jean Dielmann, 23, Quai du Commerce, 1080 Brussels‘ I am presented in all its glory. over three hours where Chantal Ackerman observes one woman’s life, so constant and unchangeable: errands, housework, lunch with my student son or sometimes alone. And, when the night comes, she turns to prostitution to make ends meet after her husband’s death.

The experience is… one of the most passable I’ve ever seen in a movie, if you will. during those three hours you’re seeing how A still camera captures the irreversibility of a rather clustered existence And very devoid of enthusiasm. A collection of very static moments where you must keep your attention on slight changes that will gradually lead to a more intense “climax” that is inevitable and violent, but always within the parameters set from the beginning.

Put like this, it sounds like a boring experience. Conventionally speaking, it can be. ‘Jean Dielmann’ isn’t offering a moving exploration of the life of a woman suffocating within four walls (present even when she goes outside), nor is it showing you the turmoil that characterizes the experience. Makes it go away does not do this because it is possible that Ackermann did not have the means in 1975, but also because believes the story doesn’t need them,

My mind remains calm during a visit to ‘Jean Dielman’. Some would say I’m asleep, but I’m not, because I can’t take my eyes off the images, no matter how immobile Biggest Challenge for Patience, Without really realizing it, Ackerman invites you to stand in the doorway watching this woman, and you get into her state of mind. So much monotony is slowly eating you up and making you impatient.

Using its images and following a routine may sound like the simplest thing in the world (applies to any art and essay tape), but the reality is that it works as long as you decide to give it the benefit of the doubt. Huh. His stretch of cinematic time is in complete disregard of convention which creates a distinct experience and manage to get you into a character’s perspective Without resorting to classic entertainment movie dramas.

Isn’t this technically something worthy of celebration? ‘Citizen Kane’ has been widely celebrated for many reasons, including revolutionizing film language while keeping a foothold in classicism. What Eckelman does here is no different in concept, even if the execution is radically different. opening the door to a different way of telling a story Which has taken root in some branches of independent cinema.

The images are not only inviting you to pay attention to the slight changes in repeated movements, but You can find details of other filmmakers of your choice in them, His way of exploiting the moments that occur between “dramatic moments” and what a traditional film intentionally leaves out is what leads me to Terrence Malick of The Final Stage, who is also interested in creating a story through those moments. Which are among the “things to happen”.

His way of showing prostitution from a gray prism and lack of emotion, like signing up in the office, but from a more secretive environment, also brings me to mind’new york girls‘, a relatively unknown gem of lizzie borden About a group of sex workers in a luxury brothel.

But traveling with a movie also means that, especially in movies like this They do not stick to a single interpretation and decide that it is the viewer who decides what he broadcasts what he sees., I might be missing it though.

Because ‘Gene Dielman’ is truly a distinct audiovisual experience worthy of celebration, as a tough facade against which you can stamp yourself, especially if you expect him to justify his first position from the very first minute. It is not so, because it was never desired.

To be good, No film can escape that scrutiny, For this reason, the best way to approach it is not frontal, it is passive. You have to be prepared to be bored to find out that maybe that’s the feeling you should be feeling. I have, in a way, done it, and that’s why I adore ‘Gene Dielman’ and find so much in it.
