Doubles vies

Olivier Assayas France, 2018

John's rating of the film Non-Fiction

The death of the novel, the democratisation (or trivialisation) of culture, the implacability of "progress", the ethics of auto-fiction, the ennui of the bourgeoisie... Assayas never satisfyingly develops any of these themes, each of which would be enough for one well-formed film. Two stars, because I know he can do better.
