Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles ★★★★½

“Better just to change all the buttons. It makes a garment look new.”

Terrific, and of course highly influential, but not my favourite quiet and subdued depiction of suffocating female oppression and the gestures used to rebel against it staring Delphine Seyrig released in 1975.
