Some other noteworthy 9.99 titles are Bob the Gambler, Hands off the Loot/Grisbi and Le Doulos, among many others.

Or to put it another way:

1962: Godard, with Vivre sa vie, announces cinematic postmodernism (films are no longer only about themselves, they are also about other films).

1963: Demy, in Bay of Angels, gives a shout out to Godard by attaching an extra-genre ending to his otherwise scrupulously observed character study of degenerate gamblers.

1964: Varda, Demy's wife, out-Godards Godard with Le Bonheur, a film that uses advertising images in place of characters.

1968: OUATITW. Leone demonstrates that films do not need to be about themselves at all, they can be entirely about other films.

2021: Drink, utterly clueless, continues to have no idea what happened in cinema 60 years ago.
Or this:

Godard: Characters are constructs.

Demy: Genres are also constructs.

Varda: Characters and genres are both constructs.

Leone: Constructs can be fun!

Drink: When can I get my rocks off?

... and at the end, in one of the most crappy happy endings ever, she falls into his arms. Bullmotherfuckingshit. A waste of culluloid
You have no sense of humor whatsoever.

Interesting that you watched a Demy film recently. Mrs. Jenkins and I saw two on Sunday night: Une Chambre en Ville (1982) and The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967). The first isn't very good but we had to watch it because my wife is a huge Dominique Sanda fan. The second is probably my favorite musical of all time--I've seen it maybe 20 times, but I have to keep returning to it because of the music.

I don't like Lola much. Much better is the one Demy made immediately afterwards, Bay of Angels, with Claude Mann and Jeanne Moreau. You really should see that one--although the dumb happy ending in that will really REALLY piss you off. LOL.


I just watched BAY OF ANGELS. It was absolute shit. Not that LOLA is great, but definitely better than BAY OF ANGELS.

(This will contain SPOILERS)

So this guy (Claude Mann) discovers gambling and goes off to the Riviera, where he meets a degenerate gambler (Jeanna Moreau, bleach blonde  ::) ) they gamble, winning big, losing big, winning big, losing big, end up broke, he loves her, she doesn?t care much about him or anything else other than roulette, and at the end, in one of the most crappy happy endings ever, she falls into his arms. Bullmotherfuckingshit. A waste of culluloid

Kolberg (1945) I wonder again how Kristina S?derbaum landed all these lead roles in nazi Germany movies: she couldn't be any sane male's wet dream. Still one has to put up with her bloated face occupying most of the screen and most of not political discussions or battle scenes of the movie. The political discussions occupy most of the first part and there is no need for them because what the matter is all about is simple and could easily become intelligible by the events: but probably Dr. Goebbles, who supervised the editing, wanted the link to the present be inescapable for anyone. So the battle scenes are what this must still be watched for. But I like also Wegener and his dialogues with George. 7/10.

Must watch 3h40 making of: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtlRaML1Px0

Although, yes, if you do have 3h40 in front of you, maybe watch OUATIA again.
