a movie criticizing his time
3 September 2018 | by yrolSee all my reviews

You get the impression that people no longer know how to see a film and what it says. Not only is the rhythm similar to Polanski's previous films, but it develops a disturbing relationship between a novelist and herself and the whole with her audience. The film criticizes the novelists who play on the autofiction and the public of social networks in the narcissistic relationship that all this little world maintains with itself. The theme of the double is at the center of the film and Polanski had wanted to adapt Dostoeivski's Double. Polanski hasn't changed, it's the public that has become more ignorant in general.
