Joel & Ethan Coen - A Tribute Video

. . .

"The world is full of complainers. But the fact is, nothing comes with a guarantee. I don't care if you're the Pope of Rome, President of the United States, or even Man of the Year — something can always go wrong. And go ahead, complain, tell your problems to your neighbor, ask for help —. But what I know about is Texas … And down here... you're on your own."
"You pay for everything in this world. There is nothing free, except the grace of God"

"Les frères Coen n'ont jamais caché que certains de leurs scénarios, presque un sur deux, avaient subi l'influence de grands auteurs de romans noirs. (...) Présence de James M. Cain.. Le romancier avait l'habitude de faire débuter ses nouvelles par un court paragraphe introductif à la première personne, le narrateur étant aussi protagoniste de l'histoire dont il fait le récit, comme c'est le cas dans Blood Simple" (Le cinéma des frères Coen, Frédéric Astruc, Cerf, 113-114)

"SONG TO SONG. ...an associative freedom that makes almost all other movies look, by comparison, like the stodgiest vestiges of filmed theatre. (...) Within the shifting romantic triangle of “Song to Song,” Terrence Malick develops an overwhelming, rapturous variety of visual experience". "Malick makes art—his art—the subject of the film.... This seventy-three-year-old filmmaker looks to the heart of his own inspiration, his own impulses, and creates a cinema that, with the creative command of his own life experience, feels more exuberantly youthful than that of most Sundance phenoms."

Richard Brody / The New Yorker

"Aucun film de Malick ne donnait à ce point un vertige troublant du réel saisi dans une perspective physique inédite. Corps abîmés, rockers ivres, errants ou violents, tatouages obsédants ou inquiétants, maisons délabrées, tout ce qui existe doit être source de contemplation.

La forme humaine est éloquente, à méditer, occasion de fulgurantes sensations de beauté. "L'Amour se trouve dans la forme humaine, divine", médite ainsi l'héroïne Faye (Rooney Mara), citant des vers de William Blake." (...)

"Voyageuse, éprise, inlassable, la caméra célèbre et révère les courbes des hanches, du bassin, le bas-ventre féminin, comme le Cantique des Cantiques (Song of Songs)". (...)

"La figure du jump cut et de l'association (segments discontinus d'une même scène ou émotion, lien flottant entre les plans) s'accomplit dans cette exploration de l'intermittence au sens proustien - l'examen microscopique des envies, des pulsions, des moments, des éclats et des éclipses des sentiments dont le regard plus vaste ne voit que les trajectoires". (...)
