I watch permanently good French films on Arte. 7/10 does not sound that spectacular.

From what I've seen, Swimming Pool is my favorite of his post-8 Women work but there is too much laziness in it for me.

Can't remember anything lazy in it. Quite contrary it was a beautifully controlled story telling.

No, not all, mainly cause nowadays I have a big time problem, and can only watch a fractional amount of those I'm interested in.

I liked Jeune et jolie very much. 9/10

Le Refuge was of similar quality, and a re-watch of Swimming Pool was an intensive experience.

Young Ozon  was interesting, sharp and ambitious. Nowadays he has a way more relaxed approach to filmmaking, he became a bourgeois, making a living of the aura his early work earned him. He still has creativity but he doesn't have the willingness to go all the way and actually try hard. I have seen him at a screening of Angel a decade ago (and very quickly talked with him): the encounter confirmed what I thought. His interviews also tend to show there isn't much else going on in his films that what can be seen at first glance. He's far from being a moron though.


You watched his latest films?

It does.

You underrate Ozon of course, because he is a Frenchy. But he's a good one. Always a challenge, mostly a pleasure.

Btw watch films by Robert Hossein, a criminally under-appreciated director. His Spagie Une corde, une colt is fantastic, better than some from the Sergio, or at least equally stylish.

3 Whatevers Outside of Whereever - Martin Whoever

Very entertaining stuff with a good mix of drama and humour, and lots of differentiated characters. 8/10

More a screenplay film than a director's film btw

L'amant double - Francois Ozon

A tricky thriller by one of the most interesting modern directors. 8/10
7  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In America / Re: Arnon Milchan: Super Hollywood Producer on: February 16, 2018, 02:39:07 AM
Not really. It's based on the same events.
8  Films of Sergio Leone / Other Films / Re: Vamos a matar, compaņeros aka Companeros (1970) on: February 15, 2018, 02:35:07 AM
I knew this was gonna be like some of the other comedic tone spags that i purchased and regretted, but gave it a shot anyway. I suffered all the way up to the scene where the trained pulled into the station and the gang member had a TELEPHONE as a ear Lips Sealed.  I shut it down after that.



Then you missed a fantastic ending with virtuosic directed action scenes, but of course it is way over the top.

I'm not interested in photo books.

I'm probably the only one here who was disappointed by Hanley's GBU book. Too much photos, and not enough interesting text to justify the price.

Yes, kinda amazing, isn't it?

. Just ask Wim Wenders. He thinks "Wings of Desire" is much better than "Der Himmel über Berlin" (and he's right).

Btw, absolutely not ...

The Heaven above Berlin, I love that.

I agree with mike, and yes, the film feels often like made 10 years later. And that is quite rare for a 50s film, especially for a 50s western.

The Ox Bow Incident is of course a pretty good one too, but Yellow Sky is the more fascinating film. One of my 20 favourite westerns.

The Ox Bow Incident is a bit marred by being a message film with a bit too much talk. And too much studio sets. It is 8/10 for me, but Yellow Sky gets one more. Wellman made some more good westerns, and I probably prefer Westward the Women also over The Ox Bow Incident.

One more thing, Cigar Joe,  no, this film doesn't come close to being as great as The Oxbow Incident, lol.


I think it is better, despite the weak ending.
