Confession, Theory, Actress - 1971 - 6/10
AKA - Kokuhakuteki Joyûron
Something between experimental cinema and avant-garde theatre.
Three women recall key events that drew them into acting, along with traumas.
The three are “high maintenance” souls, prone to dramatics.
Swoons, breathless declarations, half hearted suicide attempts.
Camera work includes odd angles, and framing characters off in corners or near the bottom of immense skies.
Though the film can be a trudge at times, the overall experience is of eavesdropping.
How much you enjoy may depend on how high your voyeur DNA.
