Two fugitives on the run and a helicopter on their tail... Whether because it is disguised as a cheap action/thriller or director Losey’s dedicated effort of revealing less, Figures in a Landscape has always been an overlooked work in the filmography of the master director. Whereas, in a 1971 article in the New York Times, film critic Vincent Canby wrote that Losey was “pursuing his own metaphysical concerns as in his films The Servant and The Accident.” For Losey, the film’s plot was a perfect allegory for tracing the race of survival between the hunter and the prey which is at the heart of nature. The name of the characters, the place, or details were insignificant. Figures in a Landscape is one of the stylistically most experimental and liberated works in Losey’s filmography.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.
