De la guerre

Bertrand Bonello France, 2008

Adam GR's rating of the film On War

Mathieu Almaric uses ample reservoir to play Bertrand Bonello in an autoportrait of existential crisis, discovering frequency meditation, and the hard-won skillfulness of assimilating enlightenment into everyday life. I like Bonello's suave sense of image narration, eliciting emotion based on mysterious mise-en-scène, editing, and sound design. Argento is actually so versatile. Shout out to Guillaume Depardieu.
