Death Imitating Art

The Postcard Killings (2020)

I don’t normally highlight a murder mystery movie, unless it is extemely well done, or of cultural significance. This one is both.

As this was released in March, it may have been one of the last films to see the light of day before the pandemic.

Unfortunately, the viewing public and the film critics generally did not enjoy it. Maybe it was too gruesome.

The art works, that the killings were imitating, make an interesting story, in themselves.

Saturn Devouring His Son (Goya)

The Scream (Munch)

The Kiss (Rodin)

The Incredulity of Saint Thomas (Caravaggio)

Dante and Virgil in Hell (Özcan)

The Kiss (Klimt)

As the movie is a virtual tour of Europe and (more importantly) museums of art, it will make its mark, one day, when we no longer visit such places in the flesh (as it were).

We shall see…but, in the end, does any of it really matter?
