The Tulse Luper Suitcases, Part 2: Vaux to the Sea (2004)
6 January 2012 | by MartinTellerSee all my reviews

As I suspected, this is starting to get tiring. I don't like the term "self-indulgent," it's not a particularly useful criticism. But if any movie can be called self-indulgent, this is the one. Greenaway is crawling really, really far up his own ass here. That doesn't necessarily mean you can't enjoy it, I'm just pretty sure no one can enjoy it as much as Greenaway can. What I enjoyed most of all were the striking, original filmmaking techniques. Some of the effects going on are extremely cool and not exactly like anything I've seen before. As for the content, it's a mixed bag. In the first part ("Episode 4") I was rather bored and couldn't really follow anything. Episode 5 (in the cinema) was quite a bit more compelling, and features the most direct references to Greenaway's body of work. My attention started to wander again during episode 6. It was nice to see appearances by Ana Torrent and Isabella Rossellini, and certain moments were terrific, but the film as a whole is hard to concentrate on. Not really looking forward to part 3, but I might as well finish for completism's sake.
