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. Like that extended wide shot when she enters the house for the first time that doesn't mean anything (an extended close up of her face would have been the easiest meaningful choice). I saw it twice on TV with a terrible sound, next time will be either VOD or DVD but I want a listenable sound.

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.

You watched his latest films?

The latest one I saw was Jeune et Jolie, which felt way too much like a promising first short movie. I have seen a big chunk of the one before too (Dans la Maison). I haven't seen more than the trailers for his 3 last ones (probably several clips from Franz at the time because it intrigued me a bit but I cannot remember then). Have you seen everything?

Disappointing to hear. I still have not even purchased the DVD. I have this as a digital download on my iTunes (so I can only watch it on my computer screen, not my TV screen). 

Question is if I should get one of these subpar discs, or wait until such time as a truly good disc may be released ....

Good review (and great snarky commentary on ES!). I like the little Dessner music I've heard (as it happens, I was just listening to the CD he appears on with J. Greenwood before reading your post), so I probably would have enjoyed that part of the program more than you. The Emperor Concerto at speed sounds like an interesting approach. Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed the show. I think the acoustics at Carnegie Hall are the best in the world. Better than at Lincoln Center (which are very good).
Regarding acoustics: maybe I am just used to heavy-metal concerts, which are booming. I like all music loud - including classical. But I really know almost nothing about classical music, so any criticisms I ever make should be taken with a grain of salt.

I would not say that the entire concerto was especially fast – I only noticed it particularly in the opening.

Black Panther (2018) - 2/10. Insufferable. Worst superhero film ever? Certainly a contender (even the Stan Lee cameo is the worst ever).

What's funny is that I thought Moorman was talking about a film that was about The Black Pathers, I found out earlier today it's about another superhero.  Grin

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?

He's been on my to watch list for some time, thanks for the reminder Wink

He hasn't directed that much - more known as an actor of course.

The four I've seen that he directed ("Toi, le venin", "Les salauds vont en enfer", "Le goût de la violence" and of course "Cemetery without Crosses") are all really great. As a director, he was and still is ridiculously underrated.
