Hiroshima Mon Amour (1959)


As I mentioned in a previous post I have been writing Blu-ray reviews for my friend’s site called Cinema Sentries. I’ve decided that I am going to start posting those reviews here. I won’t be pasting the actual reviews here as I want to give Cinema Sentries all the traffic it deserves.

First up is my review of the Criterion Collection’s excellent release of the fantastic French film Hiroshima Mon Amour.

I know this is all new and possibly weird for my site. I’ve spent ten years posting nothing but bootlegs and suddenly it is all movie reviews, and pop culture musings. I apologize if that is annoying. I really do plan on posting more bootlegs in some capacity in the near future.

Out of curiosity though, what do you all think of me suddenly talking about movies and such like?

  1. Well– I love movies and have been following American and foreign films with great interest since I turned around fifteen, so I have been enjoying reading your reviews. Do you have a subscription to the Criterion Channel? For the past year, I have been catching up on many foreign cinema classics I never got around to seeing (they have most of Ozu’s best films– and a handful of Mizoguchi films as well– including my personal favorite: Sansho the Bailiff). A great addition to their amazing blu ray and dvd offerings.

    • I do have a subscription to the Criterion Channel. I love it.

      I just subscribed to Mubi which has some interesting stuff on it as well. Where Criterion tends to focus on older films, Mubi does a lot of more modern foreign and arthouse movies. They are definitely worth checking out.

  2. That was an excellent review! Really enjoyed it. I think it’s great to see your movie reviews posted here, and conversations, and whatever seems like the right idea to you. I will check them out. I admit that I’m not a huge movie fan, but what I do enjoy is getting recommendations about certain ones to check out, past or present. For instance, a friend recently told me his favorite movie is ‘Wings Of Desire,’ which is about to play from a 35mm reel here at a great theatre in Atlanta. So I’m going to that for sure. I love a good recommendation.
