  1. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Too Beautiful for You

    A seamless, hopeless tour de force, Too Beautiful for You is Blier's best film, a masterful experiment in non-linear narrative both playful and painful in equal measure. The interpolation of timelines -- actual and/or speculative -- as they unfold for the central pair of couples allows for a dense interplay of possibility, and for a range of moods from passionate to perverse. Eternal sunshine within a prison of shit?

  2. Abby.'s rating of the film Too Beautiful for You

    I expected it to be funnier than it actually was. Depardieu, Bouquet, and Balasko all gave good performances though.

  3. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Too Beautiful for You

    Variations on a theme, perhaps best described as filmic semi-colons. A generally engaging play on possibilities as at least a dozen narrative threads are initiated, explored and discarded. Somewhat cubist in its fragmentary nature, it has an icy panache sweetened by precise performances and deft use of Schubert (final in-joke withstanding). A small triumph of form though trapped eventually in its own blind alley.
