08 Lug “RESONANCE” by William Stancik
This time William Stancik leads us into the mechanisms of a new puzzle. In “Resonance”, yet another pinnacle of a well-coded expressive language, it is precisely reality that triggers chaos. The chaos in Stancik’s films is actually an element carefully studied, created with talent, the key of meaning that underlies the magnetic images of his films. The metaphor of frequency is ambiguous in this film. A kind of sound vertigo that pierces the air and connects improbable destinies and logics becomes the heart of the narrative. The film proceeds like a strange, original odyssey and this frequency, such a scientific, cold, abstract element, becomes the manifestation of that incomprehensible set of forces that governs the world and men. Through its poetics, this film manages to identify the invisible connections hidden behind everything and also through this surreal and disturbing immersion in the complexity of reality, the world becomes a little more bearable.
“Resonance” as well as the other Stancik films are a kind of therapy, or, as has already been said in other reviews, a reworking of what anguishes us and which we can only perceive. In the films of this author, the line between poetry and narration is subtle, blurred by the most bizarre and abstract elements that intervene in the staging and narrated story. In short, without “Resonance” there would be foreclosed spaces of our deepest subconscious, which the director has been able to touch, stimulate and represent with talent and finesse.
