FILM: Linda Merelle compares Kieslowski and Besson





Offscreen is a new one to me: essays and reviews by the bucket full. My favourite at the moment is  The Gap: Documentary Truth between Reality and Perception, by Randolf Jordan. For some reason, everything that resonates evokes a response, like a plumby, sarky voice-off, quoting Hitchcock’s, “Drama is life with the boring bits left out.” The question is in what way it might apply to documentary film.

The one which goes with this post title is:

Linda Merelle: Kieslowski and Besson Meet in Le Cercle Rouge.
