Louis Malle's God's Country











Been totally addicted to these Louis Malle documentaries this past month. Just like Phantom India, the one I have posted here called God's Country, is so so good.

I finally got to watch Phantom India in its entirety, and then went on to rent Calcutta, Vive le Tour, Humain Trop Humain and Place de la République (those last three were all on one disc). For sure going to try to see the rest - and then on to his feature films I suppose...wonder if I will like them as much?

I love his feature films! beautifully crafted and pervy in all the right ways. I remember staying up late in highschool to watch Le souffle au coeur on the Showcase review.
