“Today it’s almost impossible to look at Sirk’s films without turning to Brecht, whose innovative theories on distancing and alienation are all over films like Fassbinder’s In a Year of 13 Moons, Sirk’s Imitation of Life and Lars Von Trier’s upcoming Dogville, a film inspired in part by a song from Kurt Weill and Brecht’s famous Threepenny Opera, which Sirk had staged in Bremen in 1929… The film opens with a shot of diamonds slowly falling into a glass container and filling the frame from top to bottom. Sirk immediately and deliberately acknowledges the precious and artificial nature of the film and, much greater, the film’s metaphoric, almost pathological obsession with surfaces (from mirrors to the color of the characters’ skins).”
Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
