La Lectrice (1988) Michel Deville, France.  My feeling was that this should have been a bit better.  Miou-Miou takes a job as a professional reader and being Miou-Miou some over her encounters are sexual in nature.

Laibach: Victory Under the Sun - This Serbian language movie is about the band Laibach from Yugoslavia. It details their origins in the early 1980s and their influence on the "NSK" movement and culture of the country at the time. Included are interviews with band members and also social commentators about how the band uses Nazi, Fascist and Anarchist imagery to provoke a response from the audience and raise questions about why the world is the way it is. It also follows the band as they give performances not only in Yugoslavia but also in both sides of Germany and in London England. In this film, they perform "Life is Life" and also "the NSK anthem" - two of my favorites from them, alongside other songs from their Opus Dei album. The entire thing is up on YouTube and only slightly more than an hour long. I recommend it to anyone who is a very big fan of Laibach like I am. Unfortunately the copy up is kind of poor quality but I did not mind as I enjoyed the content so much. I hope some day it gets cleaned up. Here is the video of them performing the NSK anthem which appears at the very end of the documentary. Overall a very fine film.

Wuthering Heights (1988) Yoshishige Yoshida, Japan.  I could have sworn I posted about this right after La Lectrice but it simply disappeared.  Anyway, my blurb mentioned my understanding of Wuthering Heights despite taking it in English lit (maybe I didn't finish it?) was of Olivier carrying Merle Oberon to the window so she could see the heather on the moors one last time.  This Japanese period version has "Heathcliff" unearthing "Cathy's" corpse and carrying it around on his horse.  But by this time I had already seen the Bunuel Mexican Wuthering Heights (1954) where "Heathcliff" leaps into Cathy's open grave to embrace her corpse.  I giggled at that because I thought it a Bunuel conceit.  But Andrea Arnold'ss UK 2011 follows the same sequence.  I wanted to like the Yoshida version more but it is no Ran.  Perhaps it is because the lead in this one is so unlikeable.

It may have been the "nudity" (or implied nudity in this case). Some of the moderators here are a bit trigger happy when it comes to that stuff. :rolleyes: :lol:

I wish that they would edit the post rather than delete all that text if that is the case.
