Notes june 15

Fathers’ day. Yes?

Last night watch Renoir’s Grand Illusion. Every line, gesture, counts. Powerful craft of film.  And several themes> The value of aristocracy, and the lack of value of war, though the two cross when the lead says “For the ordinary soldier war is tragic, but for us it is a way out.” Reflection on life and its value?

But overwhelmingly this sets a standard for how dense and structured a film can be.
