Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

Ha, you waded through this one too, did you? A slog wasn't it? Like the Greenaway comparison - on first sight they seem worlds apart, but I see what you mean.

Sounds great - added to the shopping list :) Funny you mention Saint-Just, was just watching Abel Gance play the said character in Napoleon (halfway through).. Hope you like them.

Try the Jost.. on second thoughts, you've been spending too much time on the other side of the Atlantic.

Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

I agree with you on the Haskin, btw - Lancaster('s character) is perfectly obnoxious, Neanderthal, brutish and boorish; Douglas's villain, like many he played, is smooth, seductive - and deadly. The only sympathetic character in the film is Dave (Wendell Corey), but he's a wimp. No, I put that "mas...
