I think WEB OF DECEPTION is one of my most favorite films of all time. I haven’t seen I’M NOT A PROSTITUTE, but it sounds interesting. I like one scene in JE VEUX VOIR very much. It’s the scene in which the car is stuck among landmines. The scene feels so real. If the scene was real, I imagine Catherine Deneuve would have felt scared shitless to be in that scene. She would have thought, “How I was so wrong to accept to be in this film! Now I’m going to die because I decided to star in this film.” I think the blurred lines between truth and fiction in this film is the reason why I feel this scene is very exciting. It allows me to imagine that the real Catherine Deneuve was in peril, not just “a fictional character” was in peril. There are some landmine scenes I like in other films, such as the ones in WEDDING IN GALILEE (1987, Michel Khleifi, A+), and in one episode in the TV series SUKEBAN DEKA 2, in which the heroine has to use both her steel mask and her yoyo to rescue a little baby among landmines while fighting the villain who uses boomerang as a weapon at the same time. The landmine scenes in these two works are very exciting, but because I know these scenes are fictional, these scenes don’t scare me as much as the landmine scene in JE VEUX VOIR.
