The great website Wonders in the Dark has posted essays on two more movies in its Romantic Countdown series. Both are movie that I’d made a mental note to avoid: thanks to these essays, though, I’ve swung around completely and will be looking out for them. The essays areby Jon Warner on Once (2006) and by Duane Porter on La vie d’Adele (2013; vt Blue is the Warmest Colour).
I do have a criticism of the latter essay: it lazily omits the release date. This would be irritating at the best of times but at the moment I’m operating with a sprained wrist, so having to go check on IMDB actually friggin’ hurts. 🙂
