The Innocents (1961, Jack Clayton) British nanny cracks up. New to me. Deborah Kerr is always interesting to watch.

Branded To Kill (1967, Seijun Suzuki) One of my favorites. Highly influential. Various Yakusa vie to be killer No. 1.

The Golden Chain - Very trippy animated short film. Can't wait to see what Adebukola Bodunrin and Ezra Claytan Daniels come out with next.

Fishing with John - Dank dry comedy by John Lurie.

Tokyo Story - Insanely gorgeous visuals. Strong plot that nails the slice of life approach but I felt like it could've been stronger.

Teorema - Thought the ending was wild and loved the soliloquy on artistry. There were a lot of mid points though. Idk, maybe seducing a whole family was more provocative at the time, I feel like these days people have a D.E.N.N.I.S. system about it.

Didn’t know Lurie directed films. Thanks.

Just renewed my sub today (different payment method). Gave me two weeks free. Bit weird but I’ll take it. Ha

throne of blood (1957, akira kurosawa)

Japanese version of Shakespeare's Macbeth. Best one (imo). Hope it's a permanent streamer on the channel.

Me too, but the trailer puts me off.



To me, either do something different with The Scottish Play or leave it in the attic.
