Figures in a Landscape
Joseph Losey

The subject of persecution, so recurrent in Losey’s cinema, is taken to the nth degree of abstraction in this work. Two men flee through an inhospitable landscape plagued with dangers. A helicopter chases them incessantly, like a tenacious, tireless animal with no intention of giving up on its prey. It’s not clear who’s hunting them or why. A fascinating existential metaphor anticipating a good deal of today’s cinema, starring Robert Shaw (before Jaws) and Malcolm McDowell (before A Clockwork Orange).
