My Weeks on Letterboxd (14-17/2015)

Not going to list everything I saw the last couple of weeks (here’s the list), just the two movies I wrote about:

On Wednesday, April 8, 2015, I watched Clouds of Sils Maria (2014). 3½ stars.

Kristen Stewart is, of course, amazing. I don’t think I’ll ever be a fan of Olivier Assayas’ “Let’s make the world’s best actors read the world’s clumsiest exposition“-style of film-making, though.

On Saturday, April 25, I saw Jacques Tati’s PlayTime (1967). 4½ stars.

I’m amazed by the way Tati choreographed movement in this film, and especially how he utilized space. Reminded me of Wim Wenders’ recent use of 3D, actually.

This essay on the way Akira Kurosawa stages scenes came to mind, too. Only where Kurosawa draws triangles, Jacques Tati builds pyramids.
