I’ve been reading Ruiz’s Poetic Cinema and it definitely helps to give this context. Both seem obsessed with absurdity of the image and how much it can be manipulated. The book also makes me feel like the role of the curator is in some ways reflective of himself – obsessed, constantly taking things apart, magnifying details, etc. I can’t say I’ve ever seen a movie quite like this. I’m excited to explore more of his work.
