5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas LONG OVERDUE FOR A CATCH-UP! 25 de septiembre de 2011
Por Jef Cameron - Publicado en
Formato: DVD Compra verificada
I sincerely wish Mr. Greenaway would consider taking a couple months out of his busy filmmaking schedule to revisit this MASTERPIECE and give us a restored Bluray Disc of "The Pillow Book." The Criterion Collection would do well to add "TPB" to its lineup of master works of film, as this I find to be Peter Greenaway's most accomplished work thus far (and that's saying something).

While I appreciate the past necessities of tweaking things to work on the older smaller screens (when this came out originally on DVD), now that most of us have larger-sized and wider-aspect flatscreens, it would be more appropriate - and desirous - for there to be a bluray version that brings back the wondrous use of space and aspect utilized in the original film's theatrical release. Additionally, it would be greatly instructive to hear what Mr. G might have to say about why he created this film to look and feel the way it does: what were his motivations for film/video, aspect ratio, image placement, etc.

"The Pillow Book" takes a fascinating, and revealing, look at culture, art, and of course literature, and how they interplay with our more primal, instinctual urges; and ultimately what all of it says about being human and our struggle for meaning as well as happiness. A "must-have" for any serious film aficionado/collector!
5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Not even your usual art house film - wow 21 de abril de 2017

Not your average film, The Pillow Book is really a piece of art. It is BEAUTIFUL but I had to watch it several times before I figured out exactly what the storyline was. Very much art house theater genre.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Sometimes art inspires ... 3 de enero de 2002

...sometimes it merely aspires to inspire. THe Pillow Book is very much like PG's Prospero Books. But I was annoyed by his first work. It tried too hard; very rich and ponderous, I couldn't watch it. The Pillow Book is still an intense visual experience, but it works. The Patti Guesche piece during the love scene is incredible. In fact I ordered all of her catalogue in the hope there she had produced more music just as sublime -- alas! not yet.
But here is point: this is art, not entertainment. Beyond the intellectualizing, this piece struck a chord so deep that it changed my life.
At one point in my life someone asked my why I wanted to be an entertainer. I was offended by that question -- but wasn't sure why. Perhaps it had something to do with my grandfather and uncle both being ministers. Were they entertainers? I equate entertainment with TV, of a very comfortable slide into oblivian. Most movies are like that. They target specific entertainment buttons. There's the action button. The relationship button. The laughter button. Each neatly wrapped up into a neat little package.
The Pillow book doesn't fit any of those packages. That's what's so annoying. One doesn't expect to see a work of art in the theater. It is erotic but doesn't try to turn you on. It is both dense in space yet sparse in time. Moreover it is quite satisfying. As it ends, you get to *feel* the process of reaching a new point of maturity.
Yes, the characters are shallow. So are most twenty year olds. With experience comes depth. Many of those experiences require reflection. This is one of those movies that can overwhelm, if you let it. Or just let it seep in. Then dream. Feel what it's like to treat people's bodies as the pages of a book. To overlay your story on top of another.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Challenging Greenaway film (barely) makes it to DVD 16 de julio de 1999

Peter Greenaway is an extremely erudite and sophisticated (some say pretentious) artist. Unfortunately for the medium, he's nearly the only active, high-profile filmmaker whose work continues to push back the accepted boundaries of film. This film is quite different in many stylistic ways from prior Greenaway films, although it is structurally similar to all his films. Just as The Baby of Macon pairs with The Cook, The Theif, His Wife and Her Lover in their stagey motifs, Pillow Book pairs with Propero's Books not only in their obsession with writing, but with the use of innovative image composition techniques. It is these latter traits that make them two of the most important films of the last twenty years. Like all Greenaway films, they appeal only to audiences who are ready to accept a deeply idiosyncratic set of conventions as opposed to the usual Hollywood fare (drivel). (This is a roundabout way of saying that most Americans will not really enjoy this movie -- or any other Greenaway, or Fellini, or Bergman movie, or for that matter, any serious work of art -- because they "just want to be entertained".) I was lucky to see this film in the theater prior to acquiring the DVD. Those who weren't as lucky won't know what they missed. The picture on the DVD is savagely cropped. (It is NOT a pan-and-scan; it is simply cropped. Twelve to fifteen percent of the original film image is missing on each side of the video image.) The consequence of the cropping is that the elaborate compositions of overlapping digital images is wrecked, and many of the images look rather weird. On the other hand, the transfer is acceptable, and the film is watchable; because this is not mainstream cinema, we're lucky to have it on video at all! Even in its compromised form, this film is worth a hundred immaculately produced ephemeral Hollywood films. I strongly recommend planning on repeat viewings with a copy of the screenplay (all Greenaway screenplays are in-print): this work invites extended scrutiny and discussion.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Unique visual storytelling 8 de febrero de 2006
Por C. Collins - Publicado en

This is certainly a fascinating film with visual images that are unique and beautiful and disturbing. There are several highly interesting aspects to the film that I would like to explore in this review.

First, Peter Greenaway has the eyes of a visual artist. His attention to the odd detail is incredible and subtle. I found the film to be full of images that went beyond the story line and pentrated at an unconscious emotional level. The act of exploring the human body with a caligraphy brush, composing stories, poems, novels, autobiography is certainly a compelling image and concept. Isn't our life written on our bodies? Don't we read the bodies of those with whom we are intimate? Don't we in some way brand or stain the bodies of those whom we love and in turn are we not burned and molded by those who love us? From the corpses of a young lover wrapped in indigo paper, to baths in ancient urns, the an army of handsome Japanese nude men covered in caligraphy, the film floods you with images. The storyline, the text, is only part of the story - a point I wish that those who did not like this film would recognize.

Second, it is unique storytelling. Nagiko, a Japanese girl, adores here novelist father. She comes to understand however that he must submit to sodomy with his homosexual publisher to remain in print and prosperous. Nagiko marries and becomes an unhappy young bride. She runs away from her husband and Japan to Hong Kong where she eventually becomes a fashion model. She explores the concept of writing on the human body as her art form as she moves from lover to lover, experience to experience. She meets a handsome European translator, Jerome, and becomes fascinated with him once she learns he is the publisher's lover also. She seduces him and then gradually develops a plot of revenge against the publisher. Yet, she has met her sexual, artistic, intellectual, aethitic match in Jerome and they both know that their relationship is rare. She and Jerome plot to have her story read by the publisher while he is making love to Jerome and sees the caligraphy on Jerome's body. But this plot backfires terribly as Nagiko finds she can not bear the jealousy and she rejects Jerome. Jerome, the romantic, kills himself with a drug overdose. The publisher uncovers Jerome's body and has his skin turned into parchment so he can retain his lover in book form. Nagiko learns of this and wants the book, for Jerome's skin is her medium. Her revenge includes writing a series of tales of desire and experince on the bodies of handsome Japanese nude young men whom she sends to the publisher for publication. The publisher is captivated by the beauty of the work and the men and begins to publish her novels and poems. Yet in the end, Nagiko sends an assassin with the final chapter, the last of 12 books, who kills the publisher and retrieves the book composed of Jerome's skin. I dare you to find a more odd story than this!

This visual feast of the unconscious is not for everyone. It is only somewhat linear with flashbacks to Nagiko's childhood and sections from the Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon integrated throughout the film. Yet, the character of Nagiko, her cognitive association of writing with the body, made far more sense than many performance and conceptual artists in the art magazines.

I was left with one haunting line, spoken by the 10th century courtesan who wrote the original pillow book in the title who says at the end: "I have loved two things, literature and the body."
