Watched Louis Malles' semi-autobiographical Au Revoir Les Enfants yesterday. It's a beautiful, restrained film about the German occupation of France, through the eyes of young Jewish boy in hiding. It was a friend's old Criterion DVD; think it's still in print. Highly recommended. Oh, and, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work was a fun, unvarnished look at a couple of years in Rivers' life. She's still hungry after all these years it seems. Good stuff.
Did anyone see Midnight's Children when it was briefly in theatres? Curious to see if that sprawling narrative could really make the transition to film.
