    HERE’S MY ROBERT BRESSON LIST

    SUMMER 2019 WATCHLIST

    DIARY OF A COUNTRY PRIEST (1951)

    The "coming of age" story is a definitive genre. Usually, it is the story that we are handed in high school and which somehow we identify with because the main character is going through the same issues and has the same concerns we had at the time, though perhaps in a more romantic, more elevated way.

    Straw Dogs

    ★★★★½

    Controversial for its disturbing depiction of male aggression and sexual violence, Sam Peckinpah’s 1971 suspense film STRAW DOGS plays out with all the brutality of the westerns for which the director is most famous, though it takes place very far from the frontier.

    It is brutal and on a base level it has a classic revenge story, but a unique one in that the main character David doesn’t quite know what has happened in his absense (SPOILER ALERT) his wife’s…
