Peter Greenaway's Rembrandt's J'Accuse



J’Accuse is an essayistic documentary in which Greenaway’s fierce criticism of today’s visual illiteracy is argued by means of a forensic search of Rembrandt’s Nightwatch. Greenaway explains the background, the context, the conspiracy, the murder and the motives of all its 34 painted characters who have conspired to kill for their combined self-advantage. Greenaway leads us through Rembrandt’s paintings into 17th century Amsterdam. He paints a world that is democratic in principle, but is almost entirely ruled by twelve families. The notion exists of these regents as charitable and compassionate beings. But reality was different.

  • I like to hear Greenaway talk about art and movies, and I like most of his shorts. But Oh G^d do I loathe this man's feature work!

  • It's just criminal that his complete works are not readily available in DVD format. And meanwhile, comic book adaptation film sequel umpteen just keeps crappin' on.
