Redoutable, Le (2018)

Pe 3 decembrie Jean Luc Godard a implinit 87 de ani.
Filmul despre el, Le Redoutable, l-am vazut la Cannes , anul acesta, la editia70. Înainte de proiecţie a fost o alerta cu bombă, în Palat, la Debussy. Era vorba de o geantă lasata in sala. Gluma era ca Godard insusi ar fi lansat alerta, pentru ca nu i-a placut filmul..,
Iata gluma de acum, e cs am scris recomandare de film pentru Zile si Nopti dar filmul nu intra in cinema la Brasov :(  Asa ca acolo o sa il vedeti la Cinemateca Patria pe 8 ianuarie. 2018.
v. cronica in Zile si nopti aici 

Redutabil –Dragoste, cinema și revoluție.

Jean-Luc Godard este o instituție în Franţa şi o instituţie în lumea cinematografului mondial. Godard a împlinit 87 de ani pe 3 decembrie anul acesta şi primul său film, À bout de souffle /Cu sufletul la gură, este din 1960  şi reprezintă naşterea unui curent cinematografic numit Noului Val.
Le Redoutable este un film despre Godard, dar nu un biopic pretențios ca unele din filmelele iconoclastului sabotor, ci o comedie a l'italliene- un soi de ratatouille. Cu un titlu de film şapteyecist cu Belmondo. Întrebat despre film, Godard nu a vrut să ştie nimic de rezultat. A zis că e o idee stupidă. Redutabil a fost criticat şi la Cannes (unde a făcut parte din Selecţia oficială), unde a polarizat critica, cum altfel ?
De ce a vrut Michel Hazanavicius, autorul lui OSS şi Artistului (dar şi a dramei de război The Search/Căutarea), să facă un film cu şi despre Godard  ? Este vorba de o perioadă tumultoasă din viaţa artistului la tinereţe (Louis Garrel este aici Godard), mai ales anul 1968 şi Revoluţia pe baricade, maoismul, grupul Dziga Vertov, un film bazat pe cartea autobiografică  Un An Aprèsa Annei Wiazemsky-muza şi soţia sa de atunci (avea 17 ani). Actriţă în Au Hasard Balthazar (1966, Robert Bresson), Teorema (1968, Pier Paulo Pasolini) şi la Godard în La Chinoise (1967), interpretată aici de Stacy Martin, Anne Wiazemsky a murit anul acesta, pe 5 octombrie, la 70 de ani.

Cypress Grove -SOTD

Piesa lui Skip James din 1931, Cypress Grove Blues,
aparuta si pe ultimul album al lui Eric Clapton, I Still Do (2016) ,
dar in interpretarea norvegianului David Eriksen, a carui varianta mi se pare cea mai chul.
enjoy !

         LYRICS:
I would rather to be buried
In some cypress grove
I would rather to be buried
In some cypress grove
Than to have a contrary woman
Lord, I never can control
And when yo' knee bones
Go to achin'
An your body gettin' cold
When yo' knee bones
Go to achin'
And yo' body gettin' cold
You know, you jes' gettin' ready
Honey, for some cypress grove


Then I would rather be buried
Six feet in the clay
Then I would rather to be buried
Six feet in the clay
Then to be way up here
In New York City
Honey, treated this't-a-way
An I will drink muddy water
I'll sleep in a hollow log
I will drink muddy water
Sleep in a hollow log
Befo' I stay up here
Honey, treated like a dog
Yes, I'm goin' away
Honey, don't you want to go?
Yes, I'm goin' away
Honey, don't you wants to go?
I'm scared to go back down south
Them people goin' kill me, sho'

A Ghost Story (2017)

A Ghost Story, written & directed by David Lowery.
very sweet, very restrained, very sad film.
opened in Sendance this year, heard about it a few days ago when it came on this year's lists of Best films. Very reluctant at 1st of the look of the Casper ghost and of the Ghost like synopsis was still intrigued of  how Cassey Affleck can carry a movie with a sheet over him...
here Lowery talks about the 10 films taht influenced his film, the lokk and the context. Included are Spirited Away and Poltergeist. 
Ït's all about Time.
Right.

-undecided between a 7 or an 8. out of Ten.
