Losing Ground

Losing Ground ★★★½

The first ten minutes are extremely shaky, so what a delight when this develops into something so passionate and revelatory. It had a bit of a Rohmer vibe to it but with less philosophizing and more expressionism. I enjoy most movies where they are making a movie that seems impossibly abstract (see: Contempt, The Other Side of the Wind, Matinee?) and this aspect is especially appealing here. There remains mystery in the protagonist which makes this an eternally compelling film. Really good.
