Phantom Thread (2017) - 8/10
PT Anderson strikes again. I think most people including myself will like this more than Inherent Vice.

Model For Murder (1959): Keith Andes gets framed for the murder of a fashion model who walked in on a jewel robbery organized by her boss, fashion designer Michael Gough. Nothing special, but at about 70mins it's a decent time-waster. 6/10

Watched this on the Network UK DVD.

CJ, I'll check it out and also on youtube is Double Deal with Marie Windsor and Richard Denning. Unfortunately Windsor plays the good girl here, but still a nice time waster.

Yea I watched it also just in the last week in fact, but it wasn't anything to really recommend other than as you say a time waster.  ;)

Any of you who need to kill time, there are plenty of soup kitchens or other charities that need volunteers, or sick/old people in the hospital who would appreciate visits  :)


There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.

High and Dry (1954) Ealing comedy with Paul Douglas, entertaining. 7/10.

The Square (2017): Right before the launch of a new artwork called The Square at a modern art museum in Stockholm, Sweden, the curator's phone and wallet gets stolen. His attempt to retrieve them sets off a series of unexpected events. Swedish satire/black comedy that has a few funny moments but is just an overly long and disjointed mess of standalone scenes with little substance. Avoid. 5/10

Everything I read about The Square indicates the opposite. Too bad I missed this film.

The Day of the Jackal (1973) - 8/10. Pretty good. The fact that no one can figure out the day of the hit until almost the end is a bit silly. And it's too bad all the French are so English, but still . . .

Two Simenon adaptations, both with Gabin, both directed by Jean Delannoy.

Maigret and the St Fiacre Case
(1959) - 7/10. Could be called The Fat Man Goes Home. The premise is interesting: a woman is threatened that she will die before the end of Ash Wednesday mass. She goes to mass and in the midst of it keels over with a heart attack. Maigret, on the scene, declares it murder. But how was it done? And why?

Maigret Sets a Trap (1958) - 9/10. A Jack the Ripper style serial killer is stalking Parisian women, and Maigret must stop him. But he has no leads. So he . . . (wait for it) . . . sets a trap! This film features one of the most compelling 3rd Degree sequences ever . . . and a fabulous twist. It makes one mistake, though. After moving away from the principal suspect, to pick up on a surprising new one, the film returns to the original perp. A way should have been found to stay with the new one in spite of the undeniable guilt of the first.

Gabin was the definitive Maigret. They should have made a dozen of these.

Peppermint Soda (1977) - 10/10. Dianne Kurys' autobiographical debut feature, about a girl's coming-of-age in French public school in the early 60s, a kind of female The 400 Blows (it even ends with the central character on a Normandy beach in freeze-frame), but better. The difference has to do with the fact that the heroine has a sister--the relationship between the girls is extremely well observed (Kurys dedicated her picture to her real-life sister) and makes the piece emotionally richer. I saw this film originally in, I think, 1979, and only now have I seen it (on blu) a second time. The long hiatus was unfortunate: this is one of French cinema's very best works.

The Sun Also Rises (1957) – 6/10. It had to go the Zanuck Way/ It had to go the Zanuck Way/ Zanuck, Zanuck/ Way Way Way/ Zamuck, Zanuck/ Way Way Way/ It had to go the Zanuck Way.

It should have gone the Heming Way/ It should have gone the Heming Way/Heming, Heming/ Way Way Way/ Heming, Heming/ Way Way Way/ It should have gone the Heming Way.

“Isn’t it pretty to think so?”

With Ty Power, Ava G., a fat Errol Flynn, Eddie Albert, Mel Ferrer, and Juliette Gréco (who, rumor has it, was banging Mr. Z at the time).

UPDATE: Oh yeah, Robert Evans is in the picture, another genius move of Zanuck's. Every close-up of Evans shows him with a dopey look on his face. Since he wasn't really a bullfighter, the close-ups were his only reason for being in the film. But his close-ups are terrible!
