Céline et Julie vont en bateau - Phantom Ladies Over Paris

Okay, wow, so, I found this accidentally on Youtube. "Celine and Julie Go Boating" is my favorite movie. It's 192 minutes long, and you really have to see it in the theater. But let's get excited to watch it on Youtube because, like when I was posting Renard, it's a film that lends itself to episodic viewing. And it is beautiful and great. I made red handprints to celebrate this important day.

Hausu (House)

"I always discuss important matters with children. Adults can only think about things they understand, so everything stays on that boring human level. At that level, a hit movie about shark attacks leads to one about bear attacks. That's the best they can do. But children come up with things that can't be explained." ---Nobuhiko Obayashi

Sedmikrásky (Daisies)

"We decided to let ourselves be bound by nothing. Absolutely nothing. We would free ourselves of all the implications of the story and keep only the dialogues, very precise and very evocative, which would remain absolutely fixed. These dialogues assured us of a base, they guaranteed that we would not abandon the meaning of the film, they were in a sense the guardians of that meaning." ---Věra Chytilová
