Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait Blu-ray Review
26 February 2010
Summary: Screened at the Cannes Film Festival, Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno's "Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait" (2006) arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Artificial Eye. The supplemental features on the disc include an interview with Zizou, a second interview with Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno, a making of, trailers, biographies and more. With optional English subtitles. Region-Free.
Conclusion: Technically, this documentary draws attention to itself far too often with its tricksy shifts between camera angles and distances. But, as a study in sporting concentration and an avant-garde experiment in spatial disorientation, it's pretty damn impressive.
