So glad you both liked Lions Love. Took a glance at the critical consensus, went in expecting a misfire and now it’s probably my favorite of her fiction features. One of the great final shots of all time.
I have no problem with blaming western leftists for supporting the Vietcong back then. Communist revolutions caused disaster everywhere they occurred, as would have already been known from Russia & China. Even within Vietnam, when the country got divided between north & south, massive numbers of people fled the former for the latter, while basically nobody went the other way. It should not have been a surprise that so many people had to flee again when the south fell. What the U.S deserves blame for is undermining the South Vietnamese government.
In terms of creepy French movies, I think all the ones you brought up were outdone by Louis Malle’s “Murmur of the Heart”.
I’m shaking my fist at you for suggesting those mumblecore movies (which, unlike any of those creepy French movies, I actually watched).
Murmur of the Heart, which I think is amazing, belongs to a whole other category of creepy.
Sorry about the mumblecore.
