where hypotheses come to die

I don't know if Budapest ever came through the theatres even once here(!) It really deserves its accolades, despite it being so absurdist. I am a great fan of Kafka, and all that.

Let me tell you: When I first started viewing this movie, I sensed a definite Nordic influence. Note that I never look much into a film ahead of time...

One thing I noticed was the imposition of pointless characters from the margins, poking in, and poking back out. This totally reminded me of, "You, The Living," which was directed by Roy Andersson.

Plus there was a starkness and stillness.

I contemplated on how this might be a good thing for historical accuracy, because modern people might not be so good at representing the hang-ups of the past, in the area of "Budapest," unless, maybe, they were Nordic(!!!)

What an odd thought to have, lol...

PS - I forgot to say: I found it impossible to get through the first few minutes of "Squid and the Whale." Seriously, one of the few movies I decidedly hated. Tell me why I am wrong!
