Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Apr 5, 2021

Silver Screen Standards: Stagecoach (1939) I took a short ride in a stagecoach once, at the Old Tucson Western theme park in Arizona, and it permanently altered my impression of films like Stagecoach (1939), where travelers make long journeys in those noisy, dusty, bumpy conveyances.

I read Of Human Bondage as a preteen/teen and was moved by the story of a would-be artist who eventually discovered that a simpler life of helping others was his route to happiness. As a wannabe artist myself, Philip’s journey was meaningful, even enlightening. His time practicing medicine for a poo read more

Nelly and Monsieur Arnaud (1995): The Opposite of Loneliness

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Apr 1, 2021

Claude Sautet’s Nelly and Monsieur Arnaud positions itself as a certain type of film. There are no thrills about it.

Max and the Junkmen (1971): Un Flic With a French Connection

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Mar 30, 2021

I couldn’t help being reminded of Melville’s Un Flic catching the opening of Claude Sautet’s movie. There’s a policeman, 80 grand missing, and two dead after a heist. It’s not the events that are the same, but the initial sensibilities, the palette, even the world they read more
