A cinema of suspense

Adrian Martin writes that Raúl Ruiz’s Three Lives and Only One Death (1996) is about, ‘Walking out of someone’s life, and then walking back in…about that particular gap, the mysterious hole in time between when someone says goodbye to you and when they next say hello. Or even just the gap between falling asleep next to someone in the night, and then waking up next to them in the morning. Is that other person still the same person – and are you still the same person?’

    What a quote. What a film. What a guy!

    Good luck with your tutorial. If it helps, our group talked mostly about exiles and such. I think Three Lives and Only One Death might be less painful to watch than City of Pirates. It does lack, however, the word “pirates” in its title. So it all evens out.
