Klimt

2007 / 97min / DCP

DIRECTOR: RAúL RUIZ

CAST: JOHN MALKOVICH, VERONICA FERRES, STEPHEN DILLANE

A fresco of real and imaginary characters revolving around the artist, Klimt is less a by-the-numbers biopic of the standard bearer for the Viennese Secession than a deep dive into the miasma of the Austro-Hungarian capital at the fin de siècle. Ruiz’s film offers both a melancholy acknowledgement of time’s unyielding passage, and a biting commentary on societal decadence—the state of mind and aesthetic most loathed by Klimt.
