Madeline's Madeline

Yönetmen: Josephine Decker
Cast: Helena Howard, Molly Parker, Miranda July, Sunita Mani
USA, 2018, 93', color
English with Turkish subtitles
Josephine Decker’s third feature film sounds out both the healing and potentially destructive powers of performance, what happens when you play around with roles and identities. Like Madeline herself, Madeline's Madeline remains ambiguous. Do we really need to define what’s a mental illness and what is simply the rebelliousness of a teenager? How do we draw the line between love and overprotectiveness? In a legitimate artistic process in which everyone is giving and taking, where lies the threshold to exploitation? Does creativity even exist without destruction?
