The Trial of Joan of Arc

Tweet Review by Dean Duncan Jun 3, 2015 @deanduncan63

Saw Bresson’s #TheTrialofJoanofArc. The subject is unwavering chastity, the method is chaste and unwavering. Very spare, really full.

Saw #SheWoreaYellowRibbon. It often seems Dr. Johnson’s observations about patriotism are about exactly true. …

… But not always, as this luminously patriotic declaration demonstrates.

#SheWoreaYellowRibbon. Grows with each viewing, one of those Ford films which exactly measures up to its/his exalted reputation. Lovely!
