my favorite film of the year


my favorite film of the year, by far, is the diving bell and the butterfly (le scaphandre et le papillon). it is a tremendous feat in filmmaking wherein the camera ceaselessly becomes the eye--the sole eye of the debilitated protagonist and the eye of the viewer. it is a mastery of imagery, color, and humor despite the unpredictable challenges that make up life. there is no doubt in my mind why julian schnabel won the award for best director at cannes.
