I haven't seen Heartbeats or Tom At The Farm but I guess Mommy is a good starting spot, as is Laurence Anyways.

They're both quite similar and quite different at the same time. In the end Mommy is the most "social" film, English style, and if you like movies about struggling single mothers and crazy/stupid people (I'm talking to you, The Wrestler fan), you may like it a lot. Laurence Anyway is a love story with a transgender twist (it's trying very hard to be a movie about freaks vs boring, normal (ie oppressive) people but that's where it fails the hardest to me).

Don't start with I Killed My Mother if you aren't an academic (it only has value as a first film - and one great scene - as far as I can remember), don't start with Tom At The Farm (nobody likes it) and don't start with It's Only the End of the World (it's the only one he didn't write so it doesn't give you a good idea of what he's like).

Le dernier metro (1980) - 9/10. I can watch this any number of times, and have done. It's not flawless--FF has a tendency to stoop to docu-drama summaries to get through exposition--but the plot is wonderful, particularly the dual love story. There are also so many well-observed details that it is obvious much of them come from the recollections of historical characters. And of course this was made at the time when Deneuve was at the pinnacle of her beauty.

Maybe his most powerful standalone film.

"The Exception" on Amazon Prime very good, like 8/10.  WW2 drama.

(I'm talking to you, The Wrestler fan)
Thanks - I'll definitely start with Mommy. And how old is this guy, like 6? Fuck him.

Radio Days (1987) - 10/10
It's pretty fucking dumb that this is not considered Woody Allen's best movie. And it's flat out ridiculous that its not considered one of the best movies ever made.

It isn’t a 10 you liar but this one was always on my top 5 Woody list. Manhattan, Annie Hall, Radio Days, Everybody says I Love You and probably another one i’m forgetting right now [EDIT: Anna and her sisters] are indistinctively his best ones.

Radio Days is a lesser Woody for me, but still 7/10.

But ... long time no see (as the Indian says in westerns)

everybody says I love you, huh? I’ve seen most of his movies but never that one. Maybe I’ll watch.

Death Is A Caress aka Døden Er Et Kjærtegn (1949): Car mechanic Claus Wiese drops his fiancee Eva Bergh for an affair with the rich and seductive, but also married, Bjørg Riiser-Larsen. Told in flashback by Wiese as he faces murder charges, this a decent, dark Norwegian melodrama, also sometimes called the first Norwegian film noir (as well as the first Norwegian movie directed by a woman, Edith Carlmar). It sags a bit in the middle and it's a bit too talk-y, but it was enjoyable enough. 6/10

Walking Tall (1973)

I'm almost embarrassed to admit that this was the first time I've watched this in its entirety. This moves at a fast pace and is great 70s gritty filmmaking and there is danger abound in nearly every scene. And Brenda Benet in this movie - wow. I'd personally put her in Claudia and Raquel territory.

And to top it off Phil Karlson directs.

9/10



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

The Maltese Falcon (John Huston, 1941) - 9/10
Minus one for the missed opportunity to play around with San Francisco's architecture in a Noir. Vertigo still gets the high ground on that one.
What stroke me this time is the modernity of the dialogues. They could be written today exactly as is and still make for a classic that would inspire future generations of filmmakers.

If you ever get a chance check out the 1931 version for Bebe Daniels as Miss Wonderly, much more sexier than Mary Astor and didn't have the restraints of the Motion Picture Production Code, and a bit closer to the novel releaing that Spade was a womanizer. But the 1941 rest of the cast is better

P.S. you got the date wrong.

Typo fixed, thanks.

I’ll try to see the 31 version. How’s the novel?
