Assassins: A Film Concerning Rimbaud
A free rendering of the passionate relationship between Rimbaud and Verlaine. Combining elements of avant-garde and classicism ... an iconoclastic, yet respectful film. Sarajevo Film Festival
Certainly this is a rough work, amateurish in certain aesthetic and technical respects, yet Haynes’ confidence in his storytelling and subject comes across so strongly that the shortcomings become part of the charm.
