The Illusion of Choice —Dekalog: Two (1988)
This is a listener-supported podcast! Thanks for your help!
Krzysztof Kieślowski’s DEKALOG (1988) is a series of 10 short films inspired by the Ten Commandments. With this episode we discuss the second film in the series, which deals with the second commandment “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.”
Dekalog can be difficult to find. It can be streamed online with a (relatively cheap and surprisingly legal) subscription to https://easterneuropeanmovies.com—the best viewing experience, however, will be the recent restored edition on Blu-Ray/DVD from Criterion https://www.criterion.com/films/28661-dekalog
Older editions on Blu-Ray and DVD are available for considerably cheaper on Amazon and elsewhere, and you may have luck borrowing Dekalog from your local library.
Next up on Criteria: La Passion de Notre Seigneur Jesus-Christ, found easily on YouTube.
