I enjoyed this episode, but I'm finally coming to terms with the fact that you're never going to do a Chantal Akerman episode. You're not going to bracket Raul Ruiz movies. Bela Tarr, maybe? Maybe not.

How about an Eric Rohmer retrospective?


Well, my comments disappeared, which may be an indication that I should buzz off. But let's try a different tack:

I like the idea that Duellists is the not-boring remake (remix?) of Barry Lyndon. I suspect there's a fruitful line of historical analysis here; cribbing style but pulping it up, dragging highbrow into the low, or vice versa. Not that no one's ever discussed this before, of course, but you guys know enough about the art house and the trash art to make these fresh connection.
