The Complete Kieślowski 9 – Dekalog 3 and 4

Matt and Travis move on to parts 3 and 4 of Kieślowski’s epic television series Dekalog and bring on Keith Enright of the now defunct Criterion Completion website and pod-on-permanent-hiatus. This is part 2 of our 6-part series on the anthology film that catapulted Kieślowski into international fame.

Unlike the gut-punch of the first film and the expressionistic depiction of emotional turmoil in the second, these films are hyper-focused on the internal complexity of the characters actions and emotions in situations they largely thrust upon themselves to exorcise complicated and unexplored feelings. This unspoken complexity makes these two of the most difficult to discuss in the series, but we had a great time recording the discussion and we hope you enjoy it as well.
