Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles ★★★★

This film is extremely effective in highlighting incredibly small details. For example, it’s painfully obvious how important the routine of sitting in the same seat, in her seat, at the coffeehouse is simply because the static camera is pointed at that seat, and she almost has to lean in to stay in the frame, the frame of her routine.
