Harry W (us) wrote: I really did not know a thing to expect from The Missing Picture, but any free ticket is a film worth seeing.The Missing Picture was an interesting experience. Granted it was weird experience because it wasn't story much movement and it was seemingly a new kind of docudrama I was not that familiar with which involved a lot of clay figures standing still in a re-enactment of many of the events that director Rithy Pahn encountered before his escape from Cambodia in 1979. Admittedly, I found that the slow pace sometimes took its toll on me during the film and that it was the first film I had ever seen where there was really nothing much happening from a visual perspective while it was all standing as symbolism with implied activity. Really, The Missing Picture is a very eccentric film and viewers that see it will learn of the endeavour of their diversity when it comes down to dealing with taste in cinema. I can happily say that despite being somewhat distant from the film due to taking a while to adjust to its style of storytelling, I eventually learned to adapt to the film and found that I walked away from the experience having learned a lot.The Missing Picture is a French documentary of arguably the most famous event in Cambodian history, the Cambodian Genocide which happened under the rule of the Khymer Rouge from 1975-1979 which is an event that director Rithy Pahn lived through, and he uses his medium of filmmaking as the opportunity to tell his story which is great. He uses a lot of the documented footage which depicted the facade put up by all the propaganda footage and contrasts it with a recreation of a lot of the events using clay figures and sets which are beautifully constructed and are made with a vibrant colour and passion for art. At the same time, The Missing Picture is both an expression of director Rith Pahn's artistic mind and a recreation of just what he faced as a young man suffering under the Khymer rouge in the same way that many of the surrounding Cambodian people had to suffer in the same way. As an example of filmmaking, The Missing Picture takes an approach that is one of the most eccentrically new that contemporary cinema has on option. And it allows audiences to really take in everything that is happened while admiring the visual qualities of The Missing Picture for its craftsmanship. The visual style of The Last Picture is the single quality that renders it unforgettable, and in that instance it also assures that Rithy Prahn's life story is no longer a missing picture and is actually a story that he passes on to audiences to hold in mind while taking in the endeavour of his artistic talent as a filmmaker. While the story of the Cambodian Genocide under the Khymer Rouge has been told in arguably better films such as 1984's The Killing Fields, Rithy Pahn makes the decision to tell his film in such a way that it is unforgettable, and it truly succeeds. Granted his ambition may prove a little weird for a lot of viewers, but those who can take in its appealing visual qualities and feel the story leak into their minds as part of a style like a storybook will walk away from The Missing Picture having really found something new which was previously unexplored.Frankly, Rithy Pahn tells his story in a way that is almost poetic. He has Randal Douc read out the lines like he recites a poem with all the heartfelt meaning he could possibly put into it and he uses his voice to connect the emotions to the audience. While The Missing Picture already grabs the attention of its viewers through a rather iconic visual medium, it takes in the hearts of viewers by having a voice explain the nature of everything in a way that doesn't try to force drama into things but instead lets them unfurl naturally, and that is exactly how The Missing Picture plays out. Everything in The Missing Picture is brimming with life and emotion even though there isn't a lot of movement on screen for the majority of the film, but as the camera pans across these beautifully created small sets and characters, audiences can see a first person perspective of the Cambodian Genocide recreated in his own image to tell his story and show the endeavour of his talents as an artist.Frankly, it is really interesting to see a recreation of the Cambodian Genocide from a first person perspective because it makes the experience feel all the more real even when the film is depicted through fictionalised propaganda footage and clay figures. And since the film is excellently written it ends on a rather poetic note which reveals that the film itself is the missing picture that the title refers to, a story hidden underneath footage of nothing but propaganda. So Rithy Pahn's ambition for making the film is very admirable and to know that he had to face the horrible events depicted in the film which make viewers question the very morality of humanity makes it all the more interesting, just like when Haing S. Ngor played an Academy Award winning role in The Killing Fields when he himself faced the Khymer Rouge. Frankly, I learned plenty from The Missing Picture and I will easily remember it for its artistic style, and it seems like that was the exact angle Rithy Pahn was going for and so he massively succeeds in his creation of The Missing Picture.So while the eccentric visual style and pace of The Missing Picture may alienate viewers and leave some confusion for them to deal with in terms of taking in the story structure, the heart that Rithy Pahn puts into the work as a piece of dark historical storytelling and a new kind of artistic cinema can be deemed as revolutionary by some, and it is essentially guaranteed to leave audiences walking away from the film unlikely to forget it one way or another.
