Fucky Film Review!

Hiroshima Mon Amour

Posted by Web Manager on August 3, 2009

Alain Resnais 1959

This is a kickass movie.  I had never seen it before.  I’d heard its name tossed around, but I never knew where I stood with it.  Is it recent or old?  How old? Is it Japanese or French?  A web of conundrums.  But then the other day I was watching L’ECLISSE by Antonioni.  (I didn’t Fucky Film Review it because I own the title and I rarely Fucky Film Review films that I own, mostly because I watch them over and over again.  But in honor of what an awesome movie HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR is (which I don’t own) I have published a list of the 40 or so films that do I own, which can only be accessed by clicking here.) Anyhow I really enjoyed L’ECLISSE this time around, and then I found this short commentary on the film by Martin Scorsese, which was pretty awesome, and he mentioned a few movies that I’ve been wanting to check out, HIROSHIMA among them.  It’s one for all the hall of fame lovers out there, poet-warriors, athletes each and every one of you.

  1. Fucky,

    WhadduP!?!?! No September Fucky Film Reviews? What’s the deal, yo? Anyhooo, last night I went on a date to the Grand Cinema in Tacoma and saw 500 DAYS OF SUMMER. Have you seen it? It was super good. There is a very funny scene in the movie about French films that Fucky will enjoy immensely.

    I’m about to watch part II of NO DIRECTION HOME. Nice to see Scorsese is still making great movies!

    YO. I spent most of Sept on the road and didn’t find the time to watch too much, or blog about what I was watching – but as you can see now I’ve begun to address the situation.

    I haven’t seen 500 Days of Summer. I’m really over Zoe D but if you say it’s good I will check it out.

    NO DIRECTION HOME is fucking amazing. He shit the bed with that Rolling Stones concert he did last year, but no one here at FFR doubts that there are still many good things to come from Mr. Scorsese.

    Well, that’s all for now Ms. Kitchen. Thanks for reading!
