John Berger

John Berger (1926-2017) was a British essayist, cultural thinker, novelist, poet and filmmaker. He is best known for his novel G., which won the 1972 Booker Prize, and for his influential book on art Ways of Seeing, based on the BBC television series of the same name. In the 1970s, Berger collaborated on three films with the Swiss director Alain Tanner. In 1962 he left Britain permanently for a small village in the French Alps.

John Berger, 2006

La rabbia is een film van liefde. En toch is zijn luciditeit vergelijkbaar met die in Kafka’s aforisme: “Het Goede is, in zekere zin, troosteloos.”

Dat is waarom Pasolini als een engel was.
