SPOILERS FOR ENTIRE DENIS VILLENEUVE FILMOGRAPHY (STARTING FROM 'POLYTECHNIQUE') IN VIDEO!!

SUBTITLES COMING TOMORROW!:)

In this video essay/mini docu, which serves as the final entry into my Denis Villeneuve related series (which include PRISONERS (2013) and SICARIO (2015)), I examine the narrative thread, the structure of his stories, woven through Villeneuve's entire filmography up to this point. By doing this I hope to reveal in part who Denis is not only as an director but as an individual, and what he's trying to achieve with his films.

It is advised that you (re)watch my earlier video on PRISONERS (and optionally SICARIO) as it adds another layer of context to this video and will thus enhance the understanding and the experience of this mini docu. However, it is perfectly enjoyable without doing so if you lack the time and/or interest.
