Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

And when Szell finally gets his hands on the loot, did he really have to have it appraised among the camp survivors in the Diamond District, massive hub that it is? Not a fan of the movie, but the diamond district has been overwhelmingly run by Orthodox Jews since at least WWII, kind of inevitable ...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

Stifling hot here in Sweden, I find that I can't be fucked to do much more than work and watch The Sopranos - I know, not welcome here in these pages, I will resist (still the best tv show ever, btw) - but a couple of real stinkers came my way, so enjoy: https://m.media-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BMjE3M...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

Nice write-up. Yes, you can see why Rivette and his chums liked Hawks so much, can't you? I'll take your word for it on the Deleuze equation (I did as it happens get that far in his book before I gave up). I'm no great Wayne fan but this is his best performance, I reckon - and Clift is superb as al...

Hey there, back again - a push of energy this morning led me to write this: https://m.media-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BMjI1Njk4NDQ5N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDYzNzU2NA@@._V1_.jpg Howard Hawks - Red River (1948) It’s fascinating watching Hawks’ films this late, seventy years on, and realising how minimal, how...

OK, so it was shot in Hungary, but I'm assuming that even in the wilds of Sweden there is a) a mobile phone connection and b) a local constabulary (Henrik!

Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

I have no other choice but to play the "mauvais coucheur" part, sorry pals, and based on my faulty memory at that. While I commend the film's ambition, I remember it as the kind of film that is just a bit too full of itself, and not much else save for the rave scenes, which I found just a bit too y...
