Reading films and watching novels

February 11, 2010

Today’s edition of the Daily Cardinal features my latest column, in which I discuss the late great Eric Rohmer, the notion of literary cinema and the problematic effect that subtitles have on film-watching. The piece could use more slang, but I suppose there’s always next week. So check it out and have yourself a pleasant morning, if possible.

Goodbye Eric Rohmer

January 11, 2010

Eric Rohmer died today.

1. Claire’s Knee (1970)

2. The Aviator’s Wife (1981)

3. La collectionneuse (1967)

4. Pauline at the Beach (1983)

5. My Night at Maud’s (1969)

In that order, I think.
