A Short Film About Killing

Posted by martinteller on February 9, 2006

I don’t remember much about Decalogue 5, although my log indicates that I thought it heavy-handed.  Either this remake of it is quite different, or I’ve changed my mind.  I don’t necessarily agree with Kieslowski (the same way I don’t agree with Von Trier in Dancer in the Dark) but this film approaches the subject matter in an amibiguous enough manner to let you ruminate on it a while and draw your own conclusions.  The murder scene is one of the most brutal I’ve ever seen.  Rating: 8


Also on the disc was A Night Porter’s Point of View, a documentary short featuring (you guessed it) a night porter ranting and rambling on various subjects.  I skimmed through it rather quickly, seemed to be occasionally funny but overall not that compelling.  Rating: 6
