10.12.2014 Reign of Terror

Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 10.03.03 AM

French Revolution filtered through 40’s genre film making, especially film noir. I’ve never seen anything else like this and for that reason alone it was very enjoyable. Made me think of Winstanley, even though they are really not much alike. I guess there just aren’t many historical films that break from the heavy and overbearing traditional way of dealing with it. This was refreshing, if a bit rough at spots. It felt strangely visceral for this period of film making.
