"I had a strange dream last night: I was looking up at the sky, and it was very, very light, and soft; and high, high above me it seemed to be slowly boiling, like light that had materialized, like the fibres of a sunlit fabric, like silken, living stitches in a piece of Japanese embroidery. And those tiny fibres, light-bearing, living threads, seemed to be moving and floating and becoming like birds, hovering, so high up that they could never be reached."

  • At Film Comment, Paul Schrader writes incisively on Yasujiro Ozu's artistic project.
"Although Dinner at Eight is ranked as a classic “comedy,” it has far less in common with the post-vaudevillian slapstick of Animal Crackers (which Kaufman wrote for the Marx Brothers in 1928) than with the acerbic psychological portrayals of All About Eve (which Joseph Mankiewicz would write and direct for the screen in 1950). For while the film initially showcases the quick repartee and exaggerated facial expressions of the era’s comedies, it quickly becomes a complex social satire which concerns itself with an array of human frailties—and which remains strikingly of the moment."
  • Author Amor Towles considers George Cukor's Dinner at Eight for the Library of America's column The Moviegoer.
