TRIPLE feature

17 Mar

While I should have been working on bags and drawings TCM had a marathon of MOMA collection films. Which made for a fun distraction.

First, ItalianAmerican (1974). A documentary by Martin Scorsese, shot in the Manhattan apartment he grew up in, his parents discuss their personal family stories and history. (In the end credits he gives his mothers pasta sauce recipe.)

Next up, Weddings and Babies (1958) by Morris Engel. Really great looking (French feeling) film about a women who is dating and working for her photographer boyfriend in NYC. She’s sensitive and he’s kind of a jerk. I would watch this again just to see the photographies logo.

Then look who shows up- Little Miss Jean Seberg! in Bonjour Tristesse (1958) by Otto Preminger. Damn, she makes me want to cut all my hair off again. . .

She made this film two years before Breathless. Watch it for the epic beach house, fashion and the dangerous sexy time.  Who doesn’t love her?
