When I say 'police work primer,' in Unforgotten they are dealing with missing persons who turn up dead. It holds you more as the case gets started and develops.

Nice & watchable so far. Too early for a verdict, but definitely entertaining (though some series experience a sharp dropoff in entertainment value at some point).

I'm into seasdon 2. They're a bit fond of making gay men suffer and squirm, that's the only fault I've found so far. You can't binge on it either.

Alphaville, The Strange Case of Lemmy Caution. B&W 1965

Quote:
A cockeyed fusion of science fiction, pulp characters, and surrealist poetry, Godard’s irreverent journey to the mysterious Alphaville remains one of the least conventional films of all time. Eddie Constantine stars as intergalactic hero Lemmy Caution, on a mission to kill the inventor of fascist computer Alpha 60.
https://www.criterion.com/films/207-alphaville

Lemmy Caution was the suave French Detective version of Matt Helm and had a series of 3-4 movies. I have them all, this one is the best.

He's sent into the future to another galaxy to thwart the evil plans of bÍte noire. It's entertaining, the future not as futuristic as in Southland Tales, but strange enough to know that's...strange alright, so it must be the Future..


I traveled back already and stopped first to visit Josephine while Napoleon was on a war campaign in Italy. Ma belle gave me les sentiments mon petit cœur as she bid me adieu..

Today I have two movies that have nothing shiny or bright about them. It's about what it is to have it hard in life. To put things in perspective.

One I doubt anyone has seen The Ditch. That's where they live along side of the train tracks. They're poor. When a crazy woman who ran away from her job wanders in she does her best to help.

The Japanese version of The Lower Depths. They live in a garbage dump, at the bottom of it. They're poor too but have their own problems. This is an Akira Kurosawa film and better thna the French version IMO.
