I was looking forward to seeing Bergman's classic "Through A Glass Darkly" on July 28th, but it was preempted by the James Garner memorial. Any idea when it might be shown?

LA HAINE features this creative mirror scene.

There was actually no mirror.  

The person we see from behind, looking into the "mirror," is a double.

Vincent Cassel is on the reflection side of the "mirror."

 

 

Yes, his character is imitating Robert DeNiro from TAXI DRIVER.

 LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Karel Reisz. Albert Finney, Shirley Anne Field, Rachel Roberts, Norman Rossington.

"Grim yet refreshing look at angry young man, who in a burst of nonconformity alters the lives of girlfriends Field and Roberts. Superbly enacted. Script by Alan Sillitoe, from his novel. One of the first and best of Britain's "angry young men'' dramas of the '60s."

D: Akira Kurosawa. Toshiro Mifune, Isuzu Yamada, Takashi Shimura, Minoru Chiaki.

Yes, it was very engaging. Almost hypnotizing. What a fantastic performance from the actress playing the housemaid herself. Her first appearance in the closet, smoking a cigarette and that expression on her face made me laugh. I was glad to see that she ended up being the title character. She became very frightening and unpredictable later in the film. It was almost a bit of a loss because she was such a satisfying eccentric, hah.

 

The tacked-on ending may have been lame, but it was so awkward that it kind of added a weird, wholesome juxtaposition, like we've just witnessed something taboo and this was their cumbersome attempt to "right" it. Reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

 

The image of her clinging to his leg as he walked down the stairs is one that sticks in your mind...

Even though Love and the Frenchwoman is listed on this month's Imports tab, the schedule for July 13 lists Throne of Blood in that slot instead. I wonder which one we'll get?
