Journey of an object

Postby iconogassed » Fri Mar 06, 2020 8:02 pm

Films that follow a non-sentient object as it makes its way or is passed around.

For completist purposes, "nonhuman" may be accepted as a substitute for non-sentient, i.e. a film about a self-aware pen, but "object" is still operative, i.e. no animals. This would mean:

Bresson's L'ARGENT, which follows, at least for a little while, some counterfeit money as it changes hands, counts.

Dupieux's RUBBER, which follows a murderous tire with psychic abilities, counts.

Bresson's AU HASARD BALTHAZAR, which follows a donkey who possess less obvious agency than the tire from RUBBER but who is more than an "object", would not count.
