Berlin Film Review: ‘In the Intense Now’

21 February 2017 12:22 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Almost every contemporary movie, from Hollywood superhero blockbusters to the most arduous Romanian art film, is shot in some variation of “widescreen.” So it was a shock to sit down in the Kino International, the exotically stodgy yet palatial Cold War movie palace built in East Berlin in 1963, to encounter a film projected in the ancient shape of a square. (The shape matched the theater: so out of time it seemed new again.) It’s clear why the Brazilian director João Moreira Salles chose that aspect ratio. His movie, “In the Intense Now” — one of the rare glories of this year’s Berlin International Film Festival — consists entirely of home movies and TV and documentary newsreel clips shot during the mid-to-late ’60s, and since the vast majority of the footage is shaped like that, why not stay true to it?
