Not long back from a relaxing weekend at the bf's; Saturday morning, coffee with Colin and Tom, Sunday six artist's studios in East Cambs. Some lovely work and one or two enviable homes and indeed lifestyles.
And films. Many films.
This time four and two bits, that's not too mention the first forty minutes of 'The Empire Strikes Back', but I'd rather not mention that. To deal with the bits: "Il Deserto Rosso" by Michelangelo Antonioni, 1964 and 'Bande a part' by Jean Luc Goddard, 1964. I bailed out of both after half an hour - 'The Half-hour rule', we call it.
The four: 'La Notte' , Michelangelo Antonini, 1961; 'The Leopard', Luchino Visconti, 1963; 'Roma', Frederico Fellini, 1972, 'Joanna', Mike Sarne, 1968.
A surfeit of 1960s/Italian cinema.
