    ★★★½

    Smooth talk is one of those few films where I have read the source material before watching the movie.

Do you have to change it to a different aspect ratio after a major moment in the film?), and a plot that pretty much ends half the way through. Do not recommend it at all.

Pierrot Le Fou is a fun, exciting, innovative, poetic, and gorgeous film about two lovers leaving society. As mentioned in Jeanne Pierre Gorin’s introduction to the film you can see it’s roots from famous noir films like Gun Crazy.…
