Post Number 121

Here is a drawing for this week's New Yorker, for a review of the movie L'Enfance Nue, directed by Maurice Pialat. The movie wasn't available at the video store near my house, and the New Yorker didn't have a copy for me to watch, but it has been compared to Truffaut's The 400 Blows, and seems like a really interesting movie about a confused and angry kid with no real family. Read the review here. You can see L'Enfance Nue at the French Institute Alliance Fran├žaise on April 6th.
On a related note, I watched Make Way For Tomorrow last night; a movie so sad that Orson Welles said it "could make a rock cry." Yeah, it was pretty sad.
