Writing about movies can feel clumsy. If a director could have put a feeling into words, maybe she would have invested a few bucks on paper and a pencil, instead of spending millions on cameras, actors, and crew to craft images that most people may not understand or even see. Often, reading or writing about the work of French art filmmaker Claire Denis makes me consider these questions of language, written and otherwise.
