La Femme Infidèle and Le Boucher

Kevin Lee invited me to discuss Chabrol's La Femme Infidèle and (the especially wonderful) Le Boucher with him recently, and he turned the discussion into three short (6 to 8-minute) video essays (here are videos one, two and three on YouTube) on his Shooting Down Pictures blog, where he does a great job of collecting both contemporary and modern commentary on the 1000 films in the canon according to They Shoot Pictures, Don't They?

Nice commentary, Dan.

Thanks, 'cita. Le Boucher is playing at the Walter Reade on April 24, but it's in the Young Friends of Film series, and it might be expensive for non-members to get in.

Update: I got in courtesy of a friend interning there, but the print they got was so unwatchably scratched that they were forced to project a VHS at the last second. God did that suck.

The movie, of course, is great.

I heard a week or two ago that the print was thrashed - too bad they couldn't find something of higher quality than a VHS. I recall the Walter Reade showing a decent print in 1999, but I guess a lot can happen in nine years.
