Danièle Huillet & Jean-Marie Straub, Cézanne - Dialogue avec Joachim Gasquet, 1989

Fine article by Dominique Païni here (hope link still works) ... n_cezanne/ which is well worth a read, despite a few odd glitches - it's Jean Renoir's 1933 Madame Bovary not Vincente Minnelli's 1949 that the Straubs "sample" - with its sapient remarks on montage from Pasolini, amongst others. Scroll down here to see how Huillet annotated the text (see below) to be read with her customary maniacal precision (there's a brief Vimeo interview with Straub on the subject too, but good luck understanding him: he might have helped if he'd taken the Gitane maïs out of his mouth for once). Whether or not Cézanne actually said all these things - Gasquet's book came out 15 years after the painter's death - is beside the point. Magnificent.

Gregory Peck is as awful as ever. Stay away.
I will. Shame our man Walto doesn't post here anymore to rush to his defence :D
the film is slightly better than any bond movie and peck is wonderful as ever. (come on, you get a gorgeous movie star and a bresson-method model/actor rolled into one, what's not to love?)

I've written a few paragraphs on Denis Villeneuve's Dune. Review is here.
