Beau Travail Review
By Christopher Null on Tuesday 1st November 2005
Claire Denis's updating and Frenchification of Herman Melville's Billy Budd -- and both turn out to be roughly as equally snoozy. The story of a sailor who spars with his captain is told slowly, sparely, and virtually entirely voiced-over. Uncompelling and tiresome, though not without a certain sense of cinematographic flair. But geez, what's with all the yoga, huh?
Aka Good Work.
