Diary of a Country Priest Well, I watched it last night. And will do so again this weekend. The film had such a profound aura as I watched another unique cinematic style, not unlike my first Antonioni, it was like a new discovery. My first Bresson film, and I am hungering for more... I had my eyes glued to the set for the entire 115 minutes... because of the spiritual makeup and heavy dealings of faith I was reminded very much of Dreyer’s “Ordet”... I loved the pacing of this film, my mind never drifted even once... I felt the priests physical deterioration was mimicking his spiritual collapse... and much of the dialogue and images were very poetic... the philosophical arguments were so well written... great imagery, minimal dialogue... it was SO amazing. After the lauding I’ve read from Tarkovsky in his diary, my expectations were quite high, and I was not disappointed at all. After the next viewing it will be fitting somewhere in my http:[email protected] DVD COLLECTION CONTEST , My DVD Collection ,My Home Theatre DVDBeaver's 15 Member choices of the TOP 111 DVDs available today!
