Final Cut - Ladies and Gentlemen
Final Cut - Hölgyeim és uraim | György Pàlfi, 2012
Hungary | 85 minutes

An odds-on candidate for the greatest movie ever made, Final Cut is entirely composed of scenes from the greatest movies ever made. Spending over three years in the editing room, György Pàlfi created this extraordinary film by culling scenes from over 450 international films and assembling them into a kind of ramshackle narrative. Characters are born, grow up, fall in love, marry, and move into domestic life: Alain Delon exchanges glances with Marilyn Monroe, while Jackie Chan springs to the rescue of Jeanne Moreau. Pàlfi, director of such eccentric gems as Hukkle and Taxidermia, offers a history of the world as told by the movies.
