directed by Bruno Dumont
France 2003

 

"Twentynine Palms" is precisely the reason why Bruno Dumont is the only living director that could have made "The Passion of the Christ" work not as a torture mechanism of unaddressed brutality but as a provocative examination of the relationship between violence and the divine.

Dumont's latest gem will surely draw endless comparisons to other lost-in-translation desert romances, from Michelangelo Antonioni's "Zabiriski Point" to Sue Brooks's "Japanese Story" and Gus Van Sant's "Gerry", but this existential story of a couple who love, fight and fuck their way through California's Twentynine Palms also has God on its side. If you're looking to seriously understand the purity of what Dumont is after here, it's probably best to approach the story as an allegorical study of original sin.

Comments The transfer is basically 100% identical to the French Blaq Out reviewed HERE. Macro blocking details are the exact same. The only difference is Tartan is lighter in tone than Blaq Out, which makes details stand out slightly. No visible compression artifacts as such. A very sharp DVD.
