The Thinking Machine #58

As Tears Go By

In their series The Thinking Machine, critics Cristina Álvarez López and Adrian Martin create a new video essay for de Filmkrant every month.

With the distance of time, the wisdom of age, and the help of cross-cutting, Anna Karina and Marianne Faithfull talk to themselves and to each other across six different films, reflecting – with words written by men and songs composed by men – on what it means to perform as women invented by men, both inside and outside the fiction.
