4 films for may

April 17, 2009

we’re getting back into it.  i hope.   will have one class in may, but it’s just one.  this summer it looks like we might be doing a hitchcock film series with some friends, so there will be plenty of write-ups on those.  back to the madness…

week of may 4:

a fistful of dollars by sergio leone

this (or one of the clint/leone westerns) was on the other day and it occurred to me that i have never seen this all the way through.  i’ve been screened clips in film school, i’ve watched parts on tv, but never watched it in it’s entirety.  i’ve loved what i’ve seen so far.

week of may 11:

jules and jim by francois truffaut

after a recent filmspotting review of this film, it confirmed my suspicion that i need to see this movie.

week of may 18:

streetcar named desire by elia kazan

marlon brando and elia kazan.  they worked in on the waterfront, i’m pretty sure they’ll work in this one.

week of may 25:

the apartment by billy wilder

the leads are weak.  what?  oh.  that’s a different jack lemmon movie?  dang.  oh well, it’s too late to chage it.
