This morning I went to see Catherine Breillat's new film adaptation of The Sleeping Beauty, it was so much to take in at 9 in the morning, the subway hadn't even started running yet and I was already in the theatre, I felt like a real cinephile.
Breillat has such a gift for enchanting and the film is so wonderfully indulgent in parts and why shouldn't it be? It is afterall a story of a young girl's coming of age through a hundred years of imagination, fantasy and adventure. It's a shame there aren't more stills on the internet yet because these really don't do the film justice, so don't judge it by these pictures.

Other films I want to see, but these will have to wait until later.
Tetsuya Nakashim's Confessions.
Warner Herzog's Caves of Forgotten Dreams.

Good eye! I didn't even notice. She seems to reuse actors a lot. Like the sister in Fat Girl is Hermangarde in The Last Mistress.
