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"!

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

For the 1978 cut of M. Hulot's Holiday — which is the definitive one we've been watching for decades — Jacques Tati shot an additional joke about the broken kayak because he saw Jaws, then spliced it in. Note the dude with shaggy '70s hair edited into a movie from '53. pic.twitter.com/49nzu8E1rV— Matt Prigge (@mattprigge) April 27, 2020

Ha - just rewatched this the other day and that gag stuck out to me. Not the hair, I never would have noticed, but even allowing for Tati-movie-logic I was groaning at that guy, like come on dude youre 25 feet away, how do you think thats a real shark
