    THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG/LES PARAPLUIES DE CHERBOURG (Jacques Demy 1964). John Farr has a tribute to this all-sung (and all actors' voices dubbed) all-pastel MGM-style musical love story scored...

    LOLA (Jacques Demy 1961) I once saw this, but it left a somewhat evanescent impression, being as much an idea of how movies should look as a movie. Demy's first feature, about a beautiful but dumb...

    CHRONIQUE D'UN ÉTÉ/CHRONICLE OF A SUMMER (Edgar Morin, Jean Rouch 1960) A pioneering - Mike D'Angelo calls it "seminal"- work of cinéma vérité (the term coined by Morin in homage to Dziga Vertov's...

    WEST SIDE STORY (Stephen Spielberg 2021). Rewritten by Tony Kushner, Arthur Laurents; acted and sung by Ansel Elgort, Rachel Zegler, Ariana DeBose. Long anticipated, finally seen in person on the...
  5. BAY OF ANGELS/BAIE DES ANGES (Jacques Demy 1963)....

    BAY OF ANGELS/BAIE DES ANGES (Jacques Demy 1963). Not to be confused with Manuel Pradal's 1997 Marie Baie des anges (in the Favorite Films section). I don't know if it's right to say this is "like...
  6. THE SOFT SKIN/LA PEAU DOUCE (François Truffaut...

    THE SOFT SKIN/LA PEAU DOUCE (François Truffaut 1964). This qualifies as a Truffaut Nouvelle Vague film. As Malle's The Fire Within is wholly focused on an alcoholic's suicidality and Jacque Demy's...
  7. THE LAST METRO/LE DERNIER MÉTRO (François...

    THE LAST METRO/LE DERNIER MÉTRO (François Truffaut 1980). This is a bore, and surprising to see a feel-good movie about the German occupation of France. Apparently a hit there, also nominated for...

    SHOOT THE PIANO PLAYER/TIREZ SUR LE PIANISTE (François Truffaut 1960). We are in purer, more essential Nouvelle Vague territory here: Truffaut right after the delinquent turned André Bazin-mentored...

    MURMUR OF THE HEART/LE SOUFFLE AU COEUR (Louis Malle 1971). Due to his documentary interests and his whole other American English language oeuvre Malle's French New Wave development seems arrested. ...

    THE FIRE WITHIN/LE FEU FOLLET (Louis Malle 1963). Wow. Thought rewatching this would be depressing but what's depressing is always bad movies, never good ones, and this is a very good one. It may...
