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

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?

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.

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.

Bergman at 100. Film Forum has an amazing retro going now: a ton of Bergman films, a ton of them restorations. Saw two early films last night (from his Bergman Before he was Bergman period). They looked fabulous and I enjoyed them both.

It Rains on Our Love (1946) - 7/10. Boy meets girl, boy lives with girl, boy and girl want to get married but--wouldn't you know?--the Swedish bureaucracy won't let them! Oh well, there's a nice man with an umbrella who seems to be steering their destinies, so it will probably all work out (yes, it rains on our love and it will always rain on our love; at the end the man with the umbrella passes the instrument over to the couple: take care and keep moving).

Music in Darkness (1948) - 7/10. During his military service, a promising pianist is blinded in an accident. Consumed with self-pity, he doesn't properly appreciate the family maid (Mai Zetterling) who loves him and could help him find happiness. He moves away and years of suffering ensue. Later the two are reunited. After some awkwardness, the pair develop as a couple and decide to get married. Unhappily, there's this damned Swedish bureaucracy that just might ruin everything . . . but, it's all headed toward a happy ending, so no worries. Bergman was such a sentimental old softy! He certainly found the secret to success on this picture, though--lots of close-ups of Mai Zetterling. I could stare at images of her forever.

That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

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

Jusqu' la Garde / Custody (2018) 7/10
Here is a good French film, Stanton. A family thriller about a divorce gone wrong. You shouldn't read anything about it before seeing it, since most of its appeal comes from the tension and the doubt you have on the characters. It won the Silver Lion in Venice.
