Sometimes I can't decide... because I make too many options, [natch] haha :D
What do you guys think?
'Sans Soleil' ... is full of documentary images, snapshots from the faraway places Marker visits. The film is full of the observations of the filmmaker about the cultures he observes.
... where all time is the same, and therefore irrelevant, just as Scottie Ferguson wanders around dazed, in a loop of fantasy and distorted memory.
'Soleil' is anything but bleak - its stories, myths, cultural tidbits, observations are unfailingly entertaining. Krasna compares the overcultured, saturated Japan to the timeless emptiness of Africa, to the spooky otherworldliness of Iceland, as his 'objective' narrative becomes increasingly a personal odyssey .... In its focusing on the minutae, the forgotten, the arcane, the ephemeral, the back alleys, the garbage,... an apocalyptic vision teeming with life.
