  1. I am struggling to get my online screener for Resnais' latest to cooperate, but so far this film is astounding. A famous playwright has died and summoned a range of famous French actors to his last home to watch a performance of one of his plays. As the film of this version of his play, the actors start reciting lines along with the young actors on the screen, usually just out of step with their delivery. And then in an additional grand layer, the playwright's massive film turns into a sort of stage across which the actors begin to act out the play in convergence with their own fading biographies. It is all quite complex and jarring at first, but I am anxious to see where this goes. Anyone catch this at TIFF?
  2. I don't know how this got on my Netflix queue, but it managed to get to the top and we watched it last night. It comes close to being comedy, but is incredibly sad. Okay as a film, but not spectacular. It does however have a significant religious aspect. It is intermingled stories of people looking for love. One of the characters is Christian and tries to be loving. She shares tapes of a religious TV show with her boss, who discovers that when he gets past the recorded show, there is porn, but you never see the woman's face. Is it her? Some interesting visual aspects to the film, especially various screens that separate people, but we still see through them. Also it snows continually outside. It's probably worth a look.
