  • The Double Life of Véronique

    The Double Life of Véronique

    ★★★★

    Me: Wow this casting is insane, I wonder if they are twins in real life. 

    Credits
    Irène Jacob - Weronika/Véronique

    I can already feel my brain adding this goof into the “memories to replay at 1 am” folder haha.

    Anyway, I loved the technical side of this film! The camera work during Weronika’s orchestra scene is really immersive and the puppet show scene is beautifully montaged. The color grading adds a certain mystique to the film that transforms the experience into something ethereal and dream-like. I think I might just have to blind-buy the Criterion three colors trilogy blu-rays now.

    Death to 2020

    I tend to like dry political humor but this was a miss for me. The comedy felt very ham-fisted, like a scrapped SNL special. The type of social and political commentary you would expect from grade school kids who follow current events through memes. Kumail Nanjani’s performance was great, though.
