The Dust of Time (I skoni tou hronou)
Sunday, July 24, 2016, 6:30 p.m.
Dir. Theo Angelopoulos. 2008, 133 min. 35mm. With Willem Dafoe, Bruno Ganz, Michel Piccoli. In Greek, English, Russian, and German with English subtitles. Angelopoulos’s last film reveals a filmmaker uncomfortable with today’s Europe, exiled from Greece in order to make a film for the international marketplace rather than for art houses. Willem Dafoe gives a memorable performance as a film director akin to the ones in Voyage to Cythera and Ulysses’ Gaze. An international-intrigue thriller touching on terrorism, body scanning, and homelessness, The Dust of Time litters dozens of smashed television sets on the stairs of a luxury hotel. Post-cinema, it is also post-TV.
