The Strange Woman (1946) - 8/10. "For the lips of a strange woman drip honey, and her mouth is smoother than oil; but her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword." These words from Proverbs 5:3 and 4 are, at an appropriate moment, spoken by a character in the film and are meant to refer to the scheming heroine, played by Hedy Lamarr. They also provide the putative message of the film, the ultimate femme fatale piece. But how are we to forget that we've enjoyed watching Hedy be bad for the entire running time of the picture? Is this a clever gambit to convict audiences of their own concupiscence, or just another example of Hollywood's bad faith? You decide:  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A1WY6QQ/

Inside Llewyn Davis (2013)

A beautiful love letter to the 1960s folk scene. It may be slow moving for some, but I found myself captivating by it. I look forward to my second viewing.

It's far broader than just about the folk scene! It's about life and sadness.

Of course! I like that it wasn't sugar coated.

It's about the power of music (not just folk music) to transcend life and sadness.

No, it's about cats, and how they enrich one's life ...

Cats are evil. Feed them to the rats . . .

Only because the rats are singled out and cornered and attacked individually. But against a rat army, a cat would fall, like any tyrant would.

Not possible. All cats are they're own emperors. An army of emperors goes nowhere.

The Best Offer:  Giuseppe Tornatore, Ennio Morricone, Geoffrey Rush, Hitchcockesque story, some plot points require thought/not fully explained.

It should have been my sort of movie but for me it didn't quite work.  Possibly the characters didn't grab me emotionally, the twist in the story was too obvious, there were some implausibilities and some viewers may be confused by the ending and the flashforwards and the flashbacks.  A bit disappointing. 7.5/10

Having said that, I liked parts of it and I'll have a look at Tornatore's earlier movie The Unknown Woman.

Rabbit-Proof Fence - 6/10 - Drama about Aborigine children kidnapped for settlement with white families, who escape and try to trek home. Starts as a preachy racial drama, turns into a chase/escape film, isn't especially good at either.

Rendez-vous (1985) - 6/10. Juliet Binoche plays a bimbo--er, an actress--who gets involved with two men at the same time. One guy is Bad Boy Lambert Wilson and the other is Good Boy Someone Other Than Lambert Wilson. It's the classic triangle: Binoche treats Good Boy like dogfood, and Bad Boy does the same for Binoche in turn. All is going along swimmingly until one day Bad Boy gets hit and killed by a car. Then Jean-Louis Trintignant shows up! Apparently Bad Boy was due to play Romeo in a production of Shakespeare's play Trintignant is contractually obligated to direct. Hmm, no Romeo; hey, Binoche is an actress, she can be Juliet! (huh?) The only problem is, Bad Boy's ghost keeps showing up, trying to convince Binoche that playing Juliet is a bad idea. It's enough to give anyone opening night jitters. But Trintignant is there to soothe Binoche before the curtain goes up--until he isn't. A beautiful piece by Lully plays. The stage lights come and we read: "Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains but a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit." John XII 24.  The End; A film by Andre Techine. WTF? Binoche was 21 at the time and didn't mind displaying her tits, ass, pubic hair, and--even in one scene--her underarm hair! ["OMG, Drink, look away, look away!"] Streaming free on Hulu for one week: http://www.hulu.com/watch/348239?
