Working with Carbunariu, Jude offers a spare, visually striking evocation of the methods of Ceausescu’s secret police, the Securitate, in its pursuit and punishment of a young dissident.
It is a fierce and impassioned denunciation of evil.
Jude, with his multiple dimensions of inquiry and imagination, poses philosophical questions about conscience and consciousness, media consumption and social order, that reach far beyond the case and era at hand to challenge the deceptions and delusions of ostensible present-day democracies.
This may be one of Jude’s minor works, but it delivers a quietly devastating emotional punch.
The film metatextually insists that we not be taken in by new, more sophisticated methods of obfuscation.
