Reading, Writing, Arithmetic #8


Sorry for the delay. You’ll have to excuse my current obsession with French cinema. Those of you that know me will surely have noticed. I say French Cinema, more directly the French New Wave. Even more accurate still would be Jean-Luc Godard. Saw A Bout de Souffle again last night. Terrific. So anyway, I dug into the archives and found an article on Anna Karina going back over ten years. Listening to Karina singing “Angela” right now as I edit this -but you won’t believe that. I was also lured in by Wenders and Kurosawa pieces recently, not to mention lists of car movies, animated films, and non-Oscar nominees. And any reading list with Roger Ebert on it is always worth the admission alone.
