I’ve kinda consciously postponed watching films from the major film-producing countries (from my point of view, of course: people in India may disagree): France, The United States of America and Britain. (And I couldn’t quite make up my mind whether to treat the UK as four contries or not.)
Like, where’s the challenge in finding a film to watch from France? And a cocktail?
Tut alors, I watched Touki Bouki and I really wanted to watch a Jean-Luc Godard film, so here we are.
“The right, because its cruelty makes it stupid. The left, because it’s too sentimental.
Actually, we shouldn’t phrase it like that.”
