Journey of an object

Post by iconogassed »

https://www.criticker.com/films/?filter=e58049

Films that follow a non-sentient object as it makes its way or is passed around.

For completist purposes, "nonhuman" may be accepted as a substitute for non-sentient, i.e. a film about a self-aware pen, but "object" is still operative, i.e. no animals. This would mean:

Bresson's L'ARGENT, which follows, at least for a little while, some counterfeit money as it changes hands, counts.

Dupieux's RUBBER, which follows a murderous tire with psychic abilities, counts.

Bresson's AU HASARD BALTHAZAR, which follows a donkey who possess less obvious agency than the tire from RUBBER but who is more than an "object", would not count.

Somehow I'd forgotten Sacha Guitry's wonderful Pearls of the Crown.

Posting 'cause 19 ratings is CRAZY LOW Y'ALL

Also, I have removed Pulp Fiction and the Marvel movies. I appreciate the additions, but the idea is that the object's travel is the structure or primary thrust of the movie. Not an incidental thread, as in Pulp Fiction, or whatever sword or amulet the avungers are after. Otherwise every MacGuffin would qualify

Well, Avungers have probably understood now that they are not allowed to play with your precious little collection.
