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

Fine article by Dominique Païni here (hope link still works) https://www.sensesofcinema.com/2006/cin ... 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 https://www.tumgir.com/kirpcatnotes 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.
