I think they're based on paintings.

Oh ok. Now that you've said it it seems very likely. That's why they look gorgeous but the extras don't know what to do.

Zombieland: Double Tap 6/10
I've always liked the first one. That sequel is a disappointing mess, in a surprising way (ie not in the "easy cash 10 years later" kind of way). It has good scenes though.

Guy 8/10
Amazing mockumentary about a (fake)  formerly famous singer. I have no idea how the film would work for foreigners, but as a french, the illusion is incredible. The film makes you nostalgic for classic musical hits that never existed and perfectly captures several decades of french music. It also succeeds at starting with the caricature and progressively revealing the man behind the mask. It sounds corny, but it does it with a welcome subtlety. The movie isn't flawless (the whole father/hidden son thing that frames the whole thing isn't what it does best) but I watched it with a big although sometimes sad smile on my face from start to finish.

The main actor/director was 39 at the time. I have no idea how he managed to perform songs with an old man voice.

Les Felins (1964) - Alain Delon, Jane Fonda, Lola Albright, together again for the first time. Wow, a performance by Fonda I actually like! Her badly accented French is charming, and that Naughty Kitten routine she does is pretty funny. The plot isn't bad and the dialog is witty. The locations in Nice are nice too. A film by Rene Clement: https://ok.ru/video/1676664900206

The Horseman on the Roof (1995) - 9/10. I'd forgotten how enjoyable this film is. It's fast moving and has a lot of really sweet locations. And it turns out the cholera outbreak of 1832 is a good backdrop against which to project a rollicking adventure tale: hey, our superstitions aren't all that different from theirs. There's a couple of great moments when the hero uses hand sanitizer to dramatic effect--a bit anachronistic, though, as the theory of germs didn't develop until the second half of the 19th Century. Several amusing cameos: Arditi, Yanne, Depardieu. And Binoche was never lovelier. I have to dock a point for some of the BS night-time lighting, but otherwise . . . Apparently, there's a version with an extra 15 minutes, but I've only ever seen the 2-hr. version. I wonder what was cut?

Hum, how long exactly was it? 2 hours? I have never heard of different versions for this film. (Yet again, I only heard 6 months ago about the differences between the US theatrical cut and the European one for The Shining.)

The different lengths listed on the french Wikipedia page:

Quote
124 minutes sur DVD
119 minutes version DVD americain
135 minutes sur cassette VHS

The 2010 "restaured" BD states 130min, but is actually exactly "2:09:41.440" long, acording to one this websites that make technical analysis of BDs and DVDs:

The Sleeping Car Murders (1965) - 10/10. Six people travel in a railroad sleeping car from Marseilles to Paris. On arrival, a woman is found dead in one of the berths. The police investigate the other five passengers, suspecting that one of them committed the crime. Meanwhile the passengers are being assassinated one at a time . . . . Guest victims include Simone Signoret and Michel Piccoli. Yves Montand and Claude Mann are the investigating officers. Jacques Perrin and Jean-Louis Trintignant are also on board. Man, does this film have pace (possible tag line: "hurtles along like a speeding train!"). It is so well edited it had me picking my jaw off the floor several times. It's also very funny, as in the midst of the investigation life goes on, and people, self-absorbed as always, can't help but render what is amazing banal. There's a wonderful device of listening to characters reviewing their lives in their heads just before they're killed, complete with flashbacks. Why has no one ever before told me about this wonderful movie? A Costa-Gavras film I can not merely tolerate but actually love. The world has been made new again! https://ok.ru/video/1676669684334

So good, I had to watch it again, and it was even better the second time. The greatest film policier ever made.

Underground (1941).  Pretty good anti-Nazi film, made during early wartime.  Lets's give 7/10
Kaaren Verne and Mona Maris were actually pretty hubba !

Who is going to remember a review from 2013, especially when there was no way to see the film here in the US. I'll be watching it again today.
