Rembrandt's J'accuse dir. Peter Greenaway (new film / trailer)

by Eleanore Catolico

9 October 2009

 

With every brushstroke, Rembrandt often painted an Amsterdam filled with social malaise fueled by wealth mongering at the height of the Dutch Golden Age. Documentarian Peter Greenaway scrutinizes Rembrandt’s famous genre piece, Nightwatch, as a means of forensic investigation into the country’s criminal underbelly. The movie speaks to art’s relevance as civilized society’s premier tool of education, communication, and preservation. If you can get over the visual echoes of PBS, then Rembrandt’s J’accuse is something definitely worth seeing. Rembrandt’s J’accuse opens Friday, October 21st in select theaters.
