This review is from: Double Lives, Second Chances: The Cinema of Krzystzof Kieslowski (Hardcover)
Kieslowski changed my life. I watched RED first, then WHITE and Finally BLUE. I’ve never watched anything that moved me so. So much better than anything that comes out of Hollywood( except for the occasional Shawshank). Ann Insdorf does a great job narrating the DVD–in the ‘extras’ section of the trilogy. Based on her performance, I bought ‘Double Lives’. I enjoyed her personal observations of the master at work. I loved her book. My only complaint is I wanted more analysis of the Trilogy(and the Decalogue). But she gives a fantastic job on the Trilogy DVD set. She’s a true scholar of the sage.

This review is from: Double Lives, Second Chances: The Cinema of Krzystzof Kieslowski (Hardcover)
I have been an enormous follower and keeper of Kieslowki’s work since a fateful afternoon when I stumbled upon a showing of “Blue” several years ago. This of course came to a bittersweet juncture when K died in 1997. Regardless, this book accurately captures the the development of this extraordinary director… and writer. Insdorff presented some interesting insights in her writing amidst some oversights: the car in Blue was a Puegeott, not BMW, and no mentioning of “Blue’s” Julie’s accident interruption in court in “White”. Although Kieslowki’s beginnings and earlier works like his string of documentaries and “Decalogue” are crutcial to his foundation as an outstandingly brilliant director as showcased in the Three Colors trilogy, I wished more expoundment was made on the his final three works which is truly poetry in images.

This review is from: Double Lives, Second Chances: The Cinema of Krzystzof Kieslowski (Hardcover)
I purchased this book and “The FIlms of Krzysztof Kieslowski” by Joseph Kickasola at the same time.
Both books explore the Kieslowski’s cinema form this early documentaries to his last masterpieces of
fiction. But I firmly believe Kickasola’s book runs much deeper on analysis and interpretation than Insdorf’s.
Nevertheless, this text is an excellent beginning to study Kieslowski’s life and oeuvre.
