Review

Known as the work of Samuel Beckett, Film(1965) was acclaimed as the greatest Irish film by French philosopher Gilles Deleuze in his book. Dealing with the idea of ‘seeing’, Film has attracted cinematic and critical interests over a long period of time. Though it is often referred as Samuel Beckett film, there are two important people who also worked on the film: Alan Schneider who transformed Beckett’s playwrights, including Film, into movies and Buster Keaton who is the protagonist of Film and the master of silent comedy. Notfilm is a testimony to their collaboration. With Beckett and Keaton at its center, Notfilm revisits the history of artists that prevailed during the time. The collaboration of the two masters is depicted like a chase from the opening sequence of the Film. Notfilm also suggests a constructive introspection on modernism. The film delivers the textures from old black and white films that we still admire. (LEE Sang-yong)
