bigger than life

image 4+5 (a door opening) very bressonian

chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying

fight sequence toward the end of nicholas ray's bigger than life - 1956
cinematography by joe macdonald

rather disorienting camera work accompanied by an equally disorienting sound track
(a tv turned out to drown out the sound of the killing)

Just saw this film.Very ahead of it's times and one of the best depictions of the subtleties of psychosis.
