    Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne

    I sense a lot more Dostoevsky here than in Four Nights of a Dreamer even, a sort've devilontheshoulder test of willpower/faith complete with debts and atonements and a warping of what can be considered a moral (narrative) "high ground", as atypical as this may appear on the surface, one simply has to listen: cars, broken glasses, vases, tap shoes, music, aural textures more important than the Cocteau dialogue Bresson finds himself a bit uncomfortable with in their more dramatic flourishes

    I wrote a very long piece on this movie, what I believe to be one of the most wonderful American films directed by one of the most wonderful American directors. Please read and share and tell your friends and subscribe to the newsletter thing cause I'm gonna do more stuff. Also watch this movie. If you would like to see it definitely don't email me at kenny nixon 1999 at g mail because I definitely won't send it to you.

    So theres this Truffaut quote I read or heard once that has really stuck with me, he talks about how in order to make really good movies a director has to be a little bit stupid, otherwise when they put two people in front of a camera and ask them to say "I love you" to each other, it will never work, either for the director or for the audience.

    Say what you will about Charlie Kaufman, he sure isn't stupid

    What a fucking chore of a movie
