I always feel Breillat is a better speaker than filmmaker, although I am a fan of A Ma Souer and Brief Crossing.
My two faves as well. 2001 was a banner year for her, although as I told someone the other day, even her "lesser" movies have something interesting to say.
I suppose that is very true - she is better than most. I just remember reading and watching a couple of interviews with her and being incredibly impressed with her outlook on life, and I get frustrated when intelligent people don't make as many masterpieces as they could:)
Have you seen her talking on a documentary included in the Criterion DVD of "Saló"? She's magnificent! I love how she makes sex seem as normal as it should be but still layers it with gender and politics.I also liked "The Last Mistress" and "Sex is Comedy" quite a lot!
No, I haven't - I remember watching Salo a few years ago and it didn't do much for me - perhaps I wasn't ready!Agreed, she's very inciteful. I more admired than liked The Last Mistress and Sex is Comedy was an interesting premise.
