  • LA FEMME INFIDELE


    I haven't been knocked out by the Chabrol I've seen in the past. Is this one particularly outstanding?

    And thanks for reminding me about the Bresson. I don't know how I could forget him!

    Chabrol made a lot of crap films, but this is a great one (IMO) from his best period: late 60s to mid 70s. I haven't seen it in quite a few years but I believe my recollection of its quality is accurate.

    Most film critics and historians will go on and on about the Greatest Year in Hollywood being 1939, when the movies released in that one year, were some of the best movies ever made and that would stand the test of time.

    I agree.

    When I was in high school, my senior year, 1969, It seemed every time I went to the movies I came out changed- Not that every thing I saw I thought was great, rather, everything I saw was great, beginning with:

    The Wild Bunch
    Midnight Cowboy
    Easy Rider
    Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
    Once Upon A Time In The West
    They Shoot Horses, Don't They?
    Alice's Restaurant
    True Grit
    Women In Love
    The Bed-Sitting Room


    There are many, many more.
