La maman et la putain

Jean Eustache France, 1973

This is Jake Kath's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

They smoke, they fuck, and they talk. 3 1/2 hours of that and not a minute is dull. Yes, it focuses on the mundane details of life than anything else but there's a clear insight it that function that couldn't fit an overarching plot. These are college students from any campus. All misguided but contain a grace that shouldn't be ridiculed. There's so much to say about this movie and that's why I love it!
