The Thieft Lives in Hell

1984

A man loses his job and starts falling apart. Phase one, welfare; phase two, moving to an unfamiliar seedy neighbourhood. In phase three, his pack of neighbours affects his mental state. Thinking he’s having hallucinations about the people around him, and to help himself regain normal, banale objectivity, he starts filming them discreetly, like a thief, from the window of his squalid room. Once developed, far from reassuring him, the films drive him from confusion into psychosis.
