The Premise of "Krull": Peter Yates' Psyche
After watching BULLITT from way back when, I have come to the conclusion that I have great admiration for a director that commands presence with silence, utilizes an emotional climax with only subtlety...the undertow of intensity. Wind-blown wisps of hair across porcelain foreheads and glazed horse-eyed gazes on the beach.
Like Jacqueline Bissett, I discover he is living in a crazy law-enforcement world of violence and our worlds have collided. Dialogue is moot in this instance. In that vein of thought, I found myself to recognize myself as a fatalistic and gentle creature, restless and tenacious, impartial and frail.
