    Luchino Visconti’s Historical/Period Dramas are consistently sumptuous and immersive.

    Oh, and it’s good to see Visconti loves Bruckner and Mahler as much as I do! Bruckner’s Symphony No. 7 forming the soundtrack in Senso worked considerably well. I loved this film.

    ★★★★★

    Second viewing of Godard’s extraordinary filmic retelling of Georges Bizet seminal opera, Carmen. And I still believe it’s his most underrated work.

    My review from when I first watched it last year:

    Godard’s best film of the 1980s, and his most French New Wave-like since his astoundingly prolific 1960-1967 period. The use of Beethoven’s music, and the occasional cuts to a string quartet rehearsing one of the renowned composer’s quartets, accentuates the film’s poeticism. Thank you Mubi.

    A phenomenal concert of a selection of John Williams’ film scores - ranging between some of his most famous scores and some lesser-known, underrated scores - conducted by the man himself. Not to mention augmented by one of the greatest orchestras in the world.

    Uncompromising, profound and beautifully raw. What a phenonmal film.

    Surely Maurice Pialat's understated, albeit powerful, turn is amongst the best that an actor-director has produced?
