Screen/Society--"The Souvenir Part II" (Joanna Hogg, 2021)
"The Souvenir Part II"
(Joanna Hogg, 2021, 108 min, UK, English, Color, DCP)
In the aftermath of her tumultuous relationship with a charismatic and manipulative older man, Julie (Honor Swinton Byrne) begins to untangle her fraught love for him in making her graduation film, sorting fact from his elaborately constructed fiction. A film about finding one's artistic inspiration and individuality that avoids every possible cliché, "The Souvenir Part II" is a portrait of the artist that transcends the halting particulars of everyday life - a singular, alchemic mix of memoir and fantasy.
