Watching Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s brilliant WINTER SLEEP again. 🍿
Watching Alfonso Cuarón’s ROMA on Netflix as I continue to catch up on films before the end of the year. 🍿
Thinking about the brilliance of Claire Denis using Neil Young’s “Safeway Cart” as the background music for Foreign Legion soldiers marching in BEAU TRAVAIL.
I introduce the Claire Denis film LET THE SUNSHINE IN for the latest episode in my “I Watch Movies” microcast. 🎥
Thinking that I may not get to see all of the films that I want to see before the end of the year. Really want to see ZAMA, IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK, BURNING, and THE FAVOURITE.
A few days later and HAPPY AS LAZZARO is sticking with me. What a strange and beautiful film it is. More people should see it.
Watching Stanley Donen’s 1963 thriller CHARADE on a snow-covered Friday night. 🍿
I’ve launched a new microcast on micro.blog where I do brief introductions to films. The first episode is about the documentary Faces Places from 2017 which was co-directed by Agnès Varda and JR.
