Could have left 10-15 min in the editing room though.I'm tempted to up my rating a little with the revelation that it's biographical, and Donzelli wrote, directed and starred in the thing, with it being based on her experiences, but I shall not. In a way, I'm glad I didn't know this before watching it.

Because I'm angry all the time. I just, I just had to say no and I blew it. That's all I needed to do and I couldn't. My dad, he was, he was completely wasted. He was tanked. He wanted to drive and I let him. He uh, went off the road. Hit a tree. I made it, he didn't. I've just been letting my mom down and my brother down, getting in fights. I don't want to be angry anymore. The only time I'm not is when I'm in the gym, and I'm training with you."

(mx) wrote: I was beginning to think that this was a remake (or follow up) of Aguire for a while and I thought that film was overrated so my enthusiasm to get through the full 2.5 hours plus was waining. Then I began to realise that this is a very low key monumental epic and it was quite clear that what you see is what you get which is pretty mind-blowing. By this I mean that when Fitzgerald took a huge steamboat over a mountain, this was actually done for real. Perhaps this was based on a true story, I don't know, but if not, then you have to wonder at the mind of Werner Herzog, which anyone who has seen Even Dwarves Started Small would already be doing, of course.
(it) wrote: Robert Altman's "Images" must've been as disturbing in 70's as Roman Polanski's "Repulsion" was in 60's and, even if it's considered non-existen in Altman's catalog as of now, there should be no mistake in calling it one of his creative highligts. This exhausting journey into schizofrenic mind is this time much more about lonliness, opression and desperation rather than sexual repression. Altman's approach to the subject is much more realisitic and brutal, so to speak and stunning camera-work catches every nuance of Susannah York's tormented character. Polanski's "Repulsion", although extremely influential, dated very much since its release but Altman's piece - even if it borrows much of its storyline - showcases that there's plenty left to say about the conditions of human mind. Brilliant.
