I'm a bit behind because of my travels and work stuff. I should be only an episode behind in both shows on Thursday, and probably right on track somewhere during the weekend.

I'm waiting before launching Twin Peaks, especially since it's nowhere to be found in France if you don't have a particular TV station (Canal+).

Twin Peaks: The Revival - Huh/10
First 4 episodes. Even beyond Twin Peaks standards, one of gen most insane narratives I've seen in TV or otherwise.

2 episodes so far. It is amazing, the old magic is there.

But how can Lynch do this without Bob, and without the dancing dwarf, the man from another place?

Fargo season 3:
Ok, back on track. Season 2 was the best TV equivalent to a page turner, but season 3, although much slower, is my favorite so far. It really takes the Coen's existentialist questions as well as their taste for the absurd to another level. We're sometimes deep down in Blade Runner territory. It's also one of the only shows where it is virtually impossible to predict where things are going.
 (In a single scene or in the season).

A Marcello Mastroianni retro at Lincoln Center yields the following:

Lo straniero / The Stranger (1967) - 5/10. Visconti's very lazy take on Camus. It's a difficult novel to put over cinematically, and Visconti does no one any favors by taking an overly literal approach. On the other hand, maybe he wasn't literal enough; Meursault's voice is what makes the novel effective, and although there is some v.o. in this, there are large stretches where we don't hear what Meursault is thinking. The trial sequence is interminable, especially as Visconti seems to be trying to satirize French Algerian jurisprudence. And I'm not sure Mastroianni was good casting: instead of diffidence he gives us perpetual nonchalance. Oh well, it was nice to get a chance to see this rare film projected in 35mm (the print looked really good, too). The New York Film Fossils were out in force--there wasn't an empty seat in the Walter Reade for this.

Three Lives and Only One Death (1996) - 8/10. This was very entertaining, a film by Raul Ruiz. Three stories are told--all with MM--the first being a kind of Lynchian updating on Hawthorne's "Wakefield." The second story is about a professor of "negative anthropology" who chucks it all one day to become a panhandler--we're into Paul Auster territory on this one. In the final tale, we are introduced to new characters, and gradually the characters from the first two stories find their way in as well and we suddenly understand that the three stories are in fact one. It goes on a little long and gets very silly at the end, but until then it cooks.

Paranoia (1969) (Orgasmo) Italian giallo starring Carroll Baker (Baby Doll, Something Wild, How the West Was Won)  who plays a wealthy widow who is seduced and terrorised at her palatial villa by a young couple, Lou Castel (Quién sabe? - A Bullet For The General) and Colette Descombes who try to drive her out crazy in order to get their hands on her money.  About a 7/10 it's also one of the first films to receive and X rating, though it's mostly T&A. You also get to see quite a bit of Carroll's assets.

Everything is done tongue-in-cheek. You are giving Drink the false impression that he might enjoy this.

Spotlight On a Murderer / Pleins feux sur l'assassin (1961) - 6/10. Immaculately shot b&w film in a gothic setting, the rather pedestrian plot has Boileau-Narcejac cribbing from Christie's And Then There Were None. I watched this mainly to see Marianne Koch, and she was certainly in the picture.

Wonder Woman (2017) - 9/10. IMAX 3-D. DC makes a real movie, WWI gets steam-punked, and Zack Snyder makes his creative presence felt. Gal Gadot (Miss Israel 2004) is a real honey. I almost feel I could convert for her. The 3-D is worthless with this caveat: the title sequence, which comes at the end, resembles a Bond title sequence. It's unlikely we'll ever see a 3-D Bond, so if you're at all curious about what a Bond title sequence would look like in 3-D . . . Otherwise, see it flat.

What would be your advice: IMAX 3D or regular flat? Flat IMAX virutally doesn't exist in Paris.
