  2. El Biffo's rating of the film The First Night

    3.5 I hate having to give stars to every film, it's a restricitve format and doesn't allow for nuance. Franju's films are often disquieting: the father whose rebellious son is sent to a mental hospital, a daughter whose father makes a weird mask for her face, and here a boy who doesn't seem to be looked out for at all. Visually, this is beautiful and may have informed 400 Blows, and Zazie Dans le Metro (1959 & 1960).

  3. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film The First Night

    To be watched together with Kieslowski's 'Tramway.'
