    La Commare Secca

    ★★★★

    Bertolucci's debut feature presents a tad bit more than a scripting and narrative brilliance by somewhat edging over to the psychological tendencies of specific characters amidst specific situations of oddities, which eventually crystallizes the personal traits of the very individuals. Pier Paolo Pasolini jots down a conflicting account of a murder mystery of a prostitute that Bertolucci's surprisingly French expressionistic style retells with solidified aesthetics of philosophical attributes.

    Tsai Ming-liang's cinematic oeuvre starts for me with an effective and somber portrayal of isolation and desperation where the intricate and suppressed requisite of a humanistic zeal for the deprived physical intimacy of an individual finds it's way for flourishing.

    One of the most nihilistic films I've watched in a while.

    Jean-Claude Brisseau‘s unobtrusively dark and pessimistic character study acts as a boundless and self surpassing exploration of mortality. A mortality that has traces of Haneke's sadistic touch. Never abandoning the philosophical aspects of the perverse artistry put up, Brisseau‘s approach of a moral disintegration reverberates of the classic French impressionistic works thematically and where the concretion of his characters poetically signifies the soul devouring paranoia of early Zulawski which…
