I don't know how/why I'd never seen Chabrol's The Unfaithful Wife until now.
I'd call that movie kind of a downer. Yes, I don't care about the cahiers folks, particularly -- not that I don't care very much for some of their films, but as a movement, it is not my place or time.
However, comparing to other of Chabrol's movies, it seems he might have been going for something, in his life -- that might be worth looking more closely.
Saw again Alphaville yet again. In fact, I remember very well when and where I first saw it, in a theater. I think it's a stupid stunt.
But, killing some time today, saw most of The Searchers again. I'm not sure if there is a more relatable character in novels or in film than Uncle Ethan, in recent times.
Oh yes, a while ago I was just looking for something to pass the time -- low blood sugar, low brain power, whatever. I do not know how it's called A Band Apart probably. Yeah, I don't know. I've seen it a bunch of times, but a few little things struck me as new this time. Like the way Odilie has that curl in her hair. Stuff like that.
Maybe young kids aren't so bad after all, I guess, even with that ridiculous stunt audio work.
