Dialogic Cinephilia - May 13, 2019

Claire Denis is the filmmaker I think of when I hear discussions of 'embodied cinema' - her aesthetic/style is all about bringing the intensity of human experience to the screen (whether in excitable moments or in the quiet stillness of reflection) and her/Godard's camera maps the body like a sensitive lover's caress. Juliette Binoche is one of the best actresses of the 21st Century and powerfully captures/releases the desires, fear, anxieties and hopes of her character. A great character study and exploration of the rational/irrational human desire to feel/connect.
