last week’s films…

.
Conte d’ete (1996) (A Summer’s Tale), Eric Rohmer ★★★★★

Third film in Rohmer’s Tales of the four seasons: A Tale of Springtime (1990), Autumn Tale (1998), A Summer’s Tale (1996), and A Tale of Winter (1992).

Solyaris (1972) (Solaris), Andrei Tarkovsky ★★★★★ rewatch

Zerkalo (1975) (The Mirror), Andrei Tarkovsky ★★★★★ rewatch

House Of Games (1987), David Mamet ★★★★★

Movie of the week

Mamet’s debut film. I’m reading Gavin De Becker’s The Gift of Fear, and he references this film, so I looked it up – house of games ebert, and it’s one of his Great Movies. All I can say is hell hath no fury…

The scene he mentions has a well known actor in a bit part – he only shows up in this one scene – William H. Macy.

Anyone who has seen William Wyler’s The Letter (1940) may know about the ending [ which was rejected and rewritten because it did not punish the murderer. ] < spoilers, hightlight to read <

The Sullivans (1944), Lloyd Bacon ★★★★★ rewatch

An American Crime (2007), Tommy O’Haver ★★

The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943), Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburge ★★★★ rewatch
