Top Three Films of May, 2011
Days of Wine and Roses (1962, Blake Edwards)
Just jaw-droppingly amazing. I mean, come on, where was I this whole time! Over the past several years I've come close to watching this movie, yet I haven't. Then I did and it was an EXPERIENCE.
Midnight in Paris (2011, Woody Allen)
See my blog posting for this one.
Slogan (1969, Pierre Grimblat)
Perhaps this film should be recommended to Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg fans only. It was the film where they met, fell in love, and two years later Jane would give birth to their only daughter together, Charlotte Gainsbourg. The film has a very sixties feel and not everything is sunshine and roses. But I enjoyed every second of this film nonetheless.
