now i regret selling the flower of evil before i got halfway through it.
that’s all i’ve seen of Chabrol
‘’Merci Claude Chabrol, merci pour le cinéma !’’
Rest In Peace you lovely man.
so sad. so very very sad.
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!
Whoah, we’ve had many director losses these weeks, now Chabrol’s turn…
He might have lost his touch but i’s a pity indeed.
I think Bellamy was extremely enjoyable. That being said, my friends hated it. :’(
As Serge Moati just said “French cinema is now an orphan”.
We’ve lost too many great directors in the past few months.
RIP to my dear Claude.
His death is a sad reminder that we’re losing a whole amazing generation of directors.
Let’s pay hommage by continuing to see his works.
We all gotta die sometime, G.
what was the cause of his death?
Life was the cause of his death.
Been thinking about him a lot lately as “A Girl Cut in Two” was a new career high for this exceedingly prolific and tottally unique film master.
Among my faves:
Le Beau Serge
A Double Tour
Les Bonnes Femmes
Marie-Chantal contre le Dr. Kha
The five young men who started in Langlois’s tiny theater 60 years ago are now finished making movies.
RIP: was watching Les Bonnes Femmes just last night, very sad.
Decomposition brought on by old age. What the hell is the matter with you?
La Route de Corinthe…such a clever comedy…he’ll be missed
Yes sad. I love those early films of his.
a director that I still have much to watch from.
wish he had advanced in the cup, he will be very much missed ):
So sad… Rest in Peace!
sad, drunk rewatch of Le Femme Infidele is due.
Alain Resnais, Jacques Rivette KEEP STRONG.
This is sad news indeed. I seem to be losing more of my favorites everyday. RIP, and thanks for leaving a great body of work for us to enjoy.
Thank you Claude Chabrol! The aspect of his cinema I love is the way he turns a thriller into a psychological character study, in subtle and humorous ways, such as in Le Boucher, La Femme Infidele, This Man Must Die, The Rupture, La Ceremonie, The Bridesmaid, L’Enfer, The Story of Women, Violette Noziere, The Color of Lies, etc.
