  • Whoa! I haven’t seen a whole bunch of those but it looks like a great month :). Campion, Godard AND Bunuel!

    Also I need to watch that Papaya movie.

    • Check out Vivre Sa Vie for sure. Also, Papaya is wonderful. I’d recommend it for a Vietnam CotR episode. I know Jhon hasn’t seen it yet.

      • I’ve seen Vivre Sa Vie multiple times. The ones I haven’t seen are some of the silly American films on your list :D. You know how I feel about those!

        • The newer American stuff probably isn’t your cup of tea, but you might like History is Made at Night. Have you seen any Borzage?

          • Only Moonrise (big screen et al) and it was amazing. I should definitely watch more.

  • I can’t believe before March you hadn’t seen movies like Vivre sa Vie and Un Chien Andalou. Interesting. I wonder what you thought of The Children of Paradise… I loved that movie.

    • Until recently, I’ve been at odds with Godard. Wasn’t until January that I started getting into his work and finally digging into his films.

      Un Chien Andalou has that scene, which I have seen a lot of times in film school, but I just couldn’t bring myself to see it again. I finally manned up and decided to see it. Interesting little piece of surrealism.

      • If you liked Un Chien Andalou, I recommend the 1930 follow-up, L’Age D’Or. It’s not quite as nonsensical as its predecessor, but is still very surrealist in style. I gave both films 10/10.
