Other stuff I really liked this month:
Venus in Furs (Jesus Franco, 1969)
L'immortelle (Alain Robbe-Grillet, 1963)
The Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes (Stan Brakhage, 1971)
Notre musique (Jean-Luc Godard, 2004)


Thoughts on these? Been meaning to rewatch Notre musique ever since I read all of the Divine Comedy.

You had a great month! I wish I saw that Tsai in theatres when I was in Portland. :( Also Le diable probablement is my favorite Bressy too. =D

It wasn't the Tsai I watched! It was another Asian movie with the same title haha. I was supposed to see the Tsai film with my girlfriend in a theatre but she broke up with me before we could and now I'm not even sure if I want to watch it at all due to the association.

Venus in Furs was great and better than the Polanski shitfest I saw. Surprised at Jess Franco actually making a (somewhat) sophisticated movie for once.

L'immortelle was fascinating and the B&W was genuinely stunning looking to me.

The Act of Seeing is up there with Dog Star Man for me. My band played a show and we put that up on a projector and it was so fitting.

Notre musique is up there with some of my favourite later era Godards. His approach to form and structure in his later work equally excites and inspires me.

Ah. I've been trying to avoid finding out anything about the Tsai before watching it so I scrolled over your review as soon as I saw the title lol… I'm sorry to hear about what happened =(

I gotta rewatch L'Immortelle in better quality, I've only seen it in a crappy VHS rip with broken subtitles… and it still ruled.
