    Amarcord

    Amarcord

    Like many Fellini films, Amarcord is a contradiction; an account of his youth yet a complete fabrication, a vivid realisation of the past, but also a dream.

    Four years after the advent of sound in cinema, Charlie Chaplin insisted on making a silent movie the entire plot for which hinged on not being able to see.

    Un prophète

    Un prophète

    This French masterpiece avoids all the clichés of American prison films while at the same time bearing an uncanny similarity to a 1960s' Japanese action picture.

Terrific

Steven Benedict’s podcasts are terrific.
I frequently plagiarise his opinions when I’m drunk.
Sadly, I can think of no higher compliment this morning.
