“I can trace my deepening love and appreciation for cinema directly from one viewing of Point Break to another. I would have first caught it piecemeal on network television in junior and senior high, swept up in the narrative and literally sensational setpieces; next, on DVD in college, enamored with its poetry and moral ambiguity; and, finally, during multiple viewings on DVD and Blu-ray, astonished anew at the total extraordinary package. It is a film firing on every conceivable cylinder, its exhilarating blend of action, morality, comedy, politics, spirituality and subversive-bordering-on-queer romance adding up to a genuinely poetic exploitation film in which every life has value.”
Stephen Cone On Point Break

“While these images seem to reveal all, they disclose nothing beneath the surface. All that we know is what we see onscreen and that Seberg’s face is delicate and lightly creased. She’s rarely shown smiling, although there are instances when she laughs emphatically, moments that feel uncomfortable and artificial, as if she were trying out an emotion she had forgotten. We know the texture of her skin; the patterns on the walls; the depth of field; the quality of the light; the contrast of the black-and-white film; the level of grain; the dowdiness of her clothes. She’s partial to granny dresses, or maybe they’re nightgowns, and when she stands in front of a window, the sunlight glows softly, creating a kind of ravishing halo effect: Saint Jean.”
