Brilliant, thrilling, fascinating and gorgeous!,
This review is from: Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno [DVD]  (DVD)
Obsessive creative film making by confirmed geniuses unhampered by financial constraints has always compelled my attention. Whether successful (Apocalypse Now) or failure (Day of the Locust), condemned (Riefenstahl's OLYMPIA) or downright weird (Jodorowsky's HOLY MOUNTAIN), these examples of hubris hold my attention and fill me with wonder. Imagine my delight that SERGE BROMBERG -my nominee for the most charming, amusing and useful Frenchman working in cinema today- has gotten hold of unfinished film by the great director Henri Georges Clouzot starring Romy Schneider featuring lots of experimental color and visual effects and psychological torture all around. Could that be the best thing ever? You bet your bootie! And you know what? It is!
Thank you Serge Bromberg! I love you!
