Dialogic Cinephilia - September 6, 2018

What are “thoughts,” and what are “things”? and how are they connected?… Is there a common stuff out of which all facts are made?… Which is the most real kind of reality? What binds all things into one universe?
-- Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life (2011)

Demme, Jonathan, et al. "A Master Builder." Film Forum (July 23, 2014) [“The dynamic duo behind MY DINNER WITH ANDRÉ and VANYA on 42ND STREET take on another classic of the stage… With Jonathan Demme replacing the late Louis Malle at the helm, this terrifically performed version of The Master Builder… channels the rage, joy and delusions of an aging architect’s final days. A dense and occasionally poetic chamber piece… Shawn acutely conveys a character whose wickedness, which can be both flagrant and underhanded, is as towering as the weakness that consumes him during his last breaths, painting the portrait of a man who’s both remarkably self-consumed and constantly racked by fear and guilt. (Lisa Joyce’s) scenes opposite Shawn are among the film’s richest, filled with a mix of lust and loathing, while creating a sense of disembodiment that will haunt the final acts.” – Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter]
