    Damn, Biette really creeps up on yah. Not a false beat in the film, but I feel like this would hit me harder on a second viewing.

    35mm print - FSLC

    A total shock to the system. Visually, narratively, and pratically destructive...at least in terms of food waste.

    As a Westerner I had a little touble understanding that last part without context. I then read an interview with Jitka Cerhová who said: "You can’t imagine how these scenes, where we threw down the table and the platters of a sumptuous banquet, were shocking in a country where people waited on line for hours in front of grocery stores."

    35mm Print. This film is a beauty. The shot of Shelley Winters underwater should be in museums. I swear Seymour Skinner is channeling Robert Mitchum in this movie.
