What an awesome French neo-noir. The acting is great. I haven't read this Thompson novel, but it definitely captures his spirit and gives it a French tweak (better than COUP DE TORCHON, which is still a good movie). Plus, it was cool to see the one-armed man from the 1993 version of THE FUGITIVE speaking French!
LACMA Bing Theatre- 052909 Wow this was a rare treat,, I saw this long ago disturbingly beautiful really a classic I want to see all of Dawaere Films.. OMG the director of Prepare Vous Mouchoires played his boss on the filmm intense
maybe I remember wrong, but Im pretty sure Kubricks version of Lolita blows. I dont know whos idea it was for him to make it, but its a pretty bad matchup with director and material. Most his stuff has that mausoleum air to it, which makes sense for movies about robots, ghosts, the imminent apocalypse, the aristocracy, you know, dead things or things that are about to die. But his stuffy detachment doesnt really work for a movie about a pedophile. (And neither does the Red Shoe Diaries soft-focus treatment, but lets not even bring up Adrian Lyne.) Anyway, this movie gets it right. Its moody, weird and batshit, as something should be about a child fucker. Also, I think it might be the best Jim Thompson adaptation, and that includes The Grifters and the movie with Rachel Wards tits and the Billy Zane movie with Sheryl Lees tits.
