Self-reflective to the max, Camera Buff follows Filip's every perception so closely that the effect is bordering on claustrophobic at times. It doesn't achieve the transcendence of The Double Life of Véronique (only Kieslowski film that I've previously seen and one of my absolute favs) nor does it try to. This one is far more concretely rooted, but it still possesses an interesting philosophical sensibility about creativity.
Wonderfully captures something really essential about balancing the thin line between fulfilling and destructive forms of passion - and the role of cinema as something else than merely observing reality. Also its sharp consciousness of the political and social context is something to appreciate.
It's an absolutely fantastic film through and through, but still, to be honest one of the most inspiring things about it was Filip's really nice winter jacket, I need to find something like that.
