plot ripoff without acknowledgment
19 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

Ripping the main characters and plot points off Winter Light without acknowledgment cheapens the film. Winter Light it is not. Using a stationary frame, hoping it'll make the film Bresson-esque... Well, Bresson it is not... Get your own style, Schrader! You're no Bresson, nor you're a Bergman.
