I cannot believe CC didn't pull every string available in order to make Playtime one of their launch blu-ray titles

I love M.Hulot's Holiday!

I just rewatched it and like, but find it just a tad long.

I really enjoyed Trafic.

A (Francophile) friend found the first 2 Hulot films too "winsome"!

ten years pass...

about Tati, who’s films I’ve only recently started to watch:

It was a delightful revelation that Mr. Bean was a reimagining of Hulot

I now sort of understand the assertion that the Hulot character might have been an influence on Lynch for his creation of Dougie Jones in TP:TR

I liked Mon Oncle much more than Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday

haven’t seen Playtime or Trafic yet, those are next

I'm seeing a 70mm copy of Playtime two weeks from now.

The bit in Trafic with the "dog" under the tire got me good
