Edvard Munch | Chicago Reader

Edvard Munch

Peter Watkins brings an elliptical, post-Godardian narrative style to bear on the age-old problem of how to make a film biography dramatically viable without being intellectually superfluous. At a length of 174 minutes, this 1976 study of the tortured expressionist painter is obsessively detailed (and meticulously researched), but through Watkins's jittery, subjective montage, it retains a life and madness of its own. In English and subtitled Norwegian.
