Classic Art Films added 2 new photos ‚ÄĒ watching L'Argent (film, 1983).

Director Robert Bresson was eighty-two years old when making L'Argent (1983), and it was clear he was in no mood of slowing down and mellowing out. The story of L’Argent follows a counterfeit bill as it originates in a schoolboy prank, then circulates like a virus among the corrupt and the virtuous alike, before landing with a loving husband and father, leading him to incarceration and violence.

This is a return to the spiritual extremes of crime and punishment that Bresson last used in Pickpocket; transposing a Tolstoy novella to contemporary Paris. Bresson uses his well-known minimalist storytelling, presenting crime as a model of redemption and prison as a metaphor for the soul. Bresson ended his film career on a high note, creating not only one of his most compelling masterpieces, but one of the greatest films of the 1980's. L'Argent is a bleak and cynical morality tale which explores the unforgiving effects of poverty, sin and crime, while depicting how a good decent man can transition into evil.

Classic Art Films shared Blade Runner Fans's photo.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those ... moments will be lost in time, like tears...in rain. Time to die."

Classic Art Films added 2 new photos ‚ÄĒ watching Intentions of Murder.

Sadako who is neglected and abused by her common-law husband, falls prey to a brutal home intruder. The intruder savagely rapes her and after he flees she cannot bring herself to tell anyone what had happened. When the rapist keeps returning, he begins to claim his love to her, convincing her to run away with him. She intially refuses but within time she begins to question whether her emotionally cold and demanding life to her unfaithful husband is any better than what her rapist has to offer.

Director Shohei Imamura, who began as an assistant to YasujirŇć Ozu, is one of Japanese's greatest filmmakers, and one of the leading pioneers of the Japanese New Wave. Intentions of Murder (1964) is just one of many Imamura masterpieces, along with The Ballad of Narayama, Black Rain and Vengeance is Mine. "I like to make messy films", he stated. "I am interested in the relationship of the lower part of the human body and the lower part of the social structure. I ask myself, what differentiates humans from other animals?"
