| A CINEMATIC FEAST
Compelling elements of Hitchcock-style cinema are interwoven with philosophical characteristics such as meaning of art and dark side of human soul in Giuseppe Capotondi's "The Burnt Orange Heresy" performed by an ensemble cast. This adaptation of Charles Willeford's 1971 novel carries the story to present and moves it from Florida to Lake Como, Italy. Under Capotondi's direction of the refreshed script everything works beautifully both in artistic and philosophical levels. The thin line between art world and underworld, questioning of art criticism, and "reading" of an art piece in terms of acquired notion and illusion are some of the intriguing points the movie provokes. James Figueras, an art critic willing to do literally anything to keep his fame and wealth (played by Danish actor Claes Bang) and American adventurer Berenice Hollis (Elizabeth Debicki) convey one of the most memorable performances and shine in the best screen chemistry I've seen in recent years. The other highlight is definitely Donald Sutherland as reclusive painter Jerome Debney who lives under care of an ambitious art collector Joseph Cassidy, a surprise cameo by Mick Jagger. The Burnt Orange Heresy offers a cinematic feast as perfectly crafted neo-noir thriller with immaculate acting. Two thumbs up, way up!
