Devotion Blur



























 (stills from a successive sequence that continues to haunt on each viewing in José Luis Guerín's Unas Fotos en la ciudad de Sylvia, in my opinion the much more fascinating half of the 'ciudad de Syvlia'  duo)

This moment is haunting, I agree. I wish it had more such moments.

(As for the film as a whole, I can only find it as fascinating as its relationship to the other film. (It does reveal a lot about both film and director.) I wish it had done more with the still-collage technique than it did.)

Yeah, it was probably wrongheaded of me to try and prop one film above the other. They are lovely compliments and I think could yield the greatest rewards being explored as such...
