Arbitrary Cinema: The Laughing Woman (1969)

4 August 2016 4:01 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Join me in the confines of my house on the hill, where every week I’ll be sharing with you a seemingly random review of a movie that’s come across my horror-nerd radar in the middle of the night. So come join my on the couch. It may give you some insight into the way our referential minds connect films, it may introduce you to something you never knew existed, or it may give you a rash that requires a 7-day ointment treatment.  Or, maybe none of that matters in the end–because this is Arbitrary Cinema..


The Laughing Woman (1969)

A Married Woman

9 May 2016 6:06 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Here's something special, a Godard movie about people as much as concepts, and the dialogue doesn't sound as if it belongs in cartoon bubbles. Jean-Luc Godard turns his intellect to the subject of relationships and reveals a lot about himself. It's a beautiful show too -- with the incredible Macha Méril visually cut up for study piece by piece. A Married Woman Blu-ray Entertainment One / Cohen Film Collection 1964 / B&W / 1:37 full frame / 95 min. / Un Femme Marieacute;e / Street Date May 24, 2016 / 39.98 Starring Bernard Noël, Macha Méril, Philippe Leroy, Roger Leenhardt. Cinematography Raoul Coutard Film Editor Andrée Choty, Françoise Collin, Agnès Guillemot, Gérard Pollicand. Written and Directed by Jean-Luc Godard

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

Imagine that -- a Jean-Luc Godard film not primarily organized around destructing film language. By 1964 Godard had taken apart the conventions of film editing and structure. He'd plumbed new depths in genre autopsies and blended moving pictures »

Classic French Film Festival March 4th -20th at Webster University

15 February 2016 7:04 PM, PST | | See recent news »

The Eighth Annual Robert Classic French Film Festival — co-produced by Cinema St. Louis and the Webster University Film Series — celebrates St. Louis’ Gallic heritage and France’s cinematic legacy. The featured films span the decades from the 1920s through the early 1990s, offering a comprehensive overview of French cinema.

The fest is annually highlighted by significant restorations, and we’re especially pleased to present Jacques Rivette’s long-unavailable epic Out 1: Spectre Additional restoration highlights include Jean-Luc Godard’s A Married Woman and Max Ophüls’ too-little-seen From Mayerling To Sarajevo. Both Ophüls’ film and Louis Malle’s Elevator To The Gallows   – with a jazz score by St. Louis-area native Miles Davis — screen from 35mm prints. All films will screen at Webster University’s Moore Auditorium (47- E. Lockwood)

Music fans will further delight in the Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra’s accompaniment and original score for Carl Th. Dreyer’s »
