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

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

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.

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?

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.  ;D

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.

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

Jusqu'à 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.

I watch permanently good French films on Arte. 7/10 does not sound that spectacular.

There are only a couple of 7/10 french films a year for me. But it isn't a spectacular film: it's (alleged?) domestic abuse as a realistic and very effective thriller. But it isn't anything more than that. Think Suspicion in real life.

There's probably no hope for stanton, but you've sold me. I'll keep my eye out for that.

Black Panther (2018).   This lived BEYOND the hype its been getting.  Everything about the film is original and spectacular.   Heck, i would put it in a early running for best picture of the year... A masterpiece, 10 out of 10...

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

Wow- so aside from some intentional baiting by DJ which no doubt knocked his rating down a couple of notches, you guys are at opposite extremes here...

Hmmm....

It just depends on how much ones tastes have been formed by TV. I can't stand the medium, so when I get even a whiff of it in a film . . .
