    I recently led a discussion group on The Dead, having first asked the audience to read the Joyce story. It was a great discussion on the nature of adaptation.

    Coincidentally, I have Sans Soleil cued up to watch next. It looks very daunting.

    I would love to see you write an Antonioni primer. His stuff baffles me although I concede it is great.

      I would’ve loved to have heard that DEAD discussion. Most of my students really loved the film (none of whom had read the story). L’AVVENTURA got a predictably mixed reaction but even the students who disliked it managed to say really interesting things about it. Can’t wait to hear what you think about SANS SOLEIL. It’s one of my favorite documentaries. It’s dense but it has its playful side.

    Sorry I have not posted in a while, I have just been so busy. Anyway, I have seen every film on this list. With the exception of number 7 (which I gave * * * stars to), I have given all of these films * * * * out of * * * * stars.

      Good to hear from you, John. You will probably be unsurprised to learn that your three-star movie is the only one of the bunch that I watched in my leisure time. The rest I was screening in classes.
