    STARS AT NOON (Claire Denis 2022)

    Resetting a Denis Johnson novel set in Nicaragua in the Eighties to the present, early pandemic time, Claire Denis makes this film feel richly erotic, dangerous, and atmospheric, but loses some of the political logic. Anglophone critics have not liked this. But it won the Grand Prix at Cannes.
    When it comes out in France in May 2023 local critics may appreciate the sensuality more. The fuzzy plot and long run-time began to pall during the last of the 135 minutes, but this . With Margaret Qualley, Joe Alwyn. Now available on Hulu.

    THE ETERNAL DAUGHTER (Joanna Hogg 2022)

    Some call it lightweight, a "minor" work by the director, a "slow cinema" drag. Yes it is uneventful and slow but I found it devastating, its use of one remarkable, long-time-collaborator actress, Tilda Swinton, to play both the filmmaker and her aging mother who go on a trip to a hotel in Wales, a building long remembered, to celebrate a birthday, a brilliant and haunting ploy whose meanings resonate long after.

    ONE FINE MORNING/UN BEAU MATIN (Mia Hansen-Lve 2022)

    A beautiful film, one of the director's finest. A young woman (La Seydoux, dressed down and never better), whose husband has died, raising a small child, dealing with the disintegration of her scholar father (Pascal Greggory) from neurodegenerative disease, has a passionate affair with a married man (Melvil Poupaud, also fine). Highly recommended. US release Friday Dec. 9, Sony Picture Classics.

    EO (Jerzy Skolimowski 2022)

    The saga of the life of a donkey inspired by the 84-year-old Polish director's emotional reaction when he saw Robert Bresson's AU HAZARD BALTHAZAR was introduced in Competition at Cannes and has met with accolades. (A dissenting view.)
