      Audience Member The concluding part of Skolimowski's Andrzej-trilogy, about a particularily bitter student reunion, is a truly revolutionary filmwork, both in style and content. After the initial blacklisting in 1967, Skolimowski decided to treat the recorded material as a diary when the ban was lifted in 1981, adding 25 minutes of new material functioning both as a personal reflection and social comment. Although generally exclusive because of it's largely private nature, the new additions perfectly annotates the original narrative and manages to enrichen it with it's several meta levels. The exquisitely apocalyptic science fiction intro also highlights Skolimowski's notion of film as memory. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Made in 1967 but forbidden for 14 years and released finally in 1981 with new footage by Skolimowski added. Really really shocking and stylish images and soundtracks. Personal, sincere, experimental, and political. You need to learn Polish history of late 90s to understand this film, but even without that, it will definitely blow your mind away. Polish new wave is probably the most important modern cinematic movement. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
