On first glance, I took Canadian director Kristof Brandl’s Pop Le Cheval to be a fashion film, albeit one which existed in a grimly intriguing world of muted colours no label would choose to showcase a collection. Further research and I’ve got…well nothing? So I’m unilaterally declaring it an unconventional teaser for a larger narrative Brandl’s yet to reveal. I’m probably dead wrong in that assumption, but it’s a wild speculation I’d love to be true.
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
