"The Imperialists are still alive!"
"The Imperialists are still alive!", de Zeina Durra.
Não estará tão cedo nas salas portuguesas, mas já dá para aguçar a curiosidade.
"The Imperialists Are Still Alive! is propelled forward (and backward, and sideways) less by by a streamlined narrative arc and more by the hope that its free-floating characters and scenes will ultimately coalesce into a larger picture. Similarly, its initial (and almost aggressive) weirdness is tempered by such somber moments as Asya relaying news of her brother not long after huddling around the radio in a small market in order to hear news of the latest bombings in Beirut. Still, extracting meaning from Durra’s film is a decidedly strange process, and The Imperialists Are Still Alive! can be as difficult to make heads or tails of as the art therein. In this way, the angle from which it’s viewed is vital".
