LA COLLECTIONNEUSE
1967, Janus Films, 89 min, France, Dir: Eric Rohmer

When cultured art dealer Adrien (Patrick Bauchau) retreats to a Mediterranean villa with his close friend for a quiet summer of reading and relaxing, he doesn't count on the presence of a third roommate - Haydee (Haydee Politoff), a young woman whose free-spirited, sexually uninhibited behavior is an unwelcome addition to the planned serenity.


THE DEAD DON’T DIE
2019, Focus Features, 103 min, USA/Sweden, Dir: Jim Jarmusch

In the sleepy small town of Centerville, something is not quite right. The moon hangs large and low in the sky, the hours of daylight are becoming unpredictable and animals are beginning to exhibit unusual behaviors. But no one foresees the strangest and most dangerous repercussion that will soon start plaguing Centerville: The Dead Don't Die - they rise from their graves and savagely attack and feast on the living, and the citizens of the town must battle for their survival. The horror comedy features the greatest zombie cast ever disassembled, including Jarmusch regulars (Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloë Sevigny, Tilda Swinton, Iggy Pop, Steve Buscemi, Tom Waits) and newcomers to the fold (Selena Gomez, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Carol Kane) in a raucous, rueful and satirical glimpse at American habits and desires at the end of the world.


Good Girls
2019, NBC-TV, 43 min, USA, Dir: Michael Weaver

Mixing a little THELMA & LOUISE with a bit of “Breaking Bad,” Season 2 of NBC-TV’s comedy-infused drama “Good Girls” is all about its female protagonists dealing with the consequences of their criminal behavior. When we last saw Beth (Christina Hendricks), she had just returned home to find Rio (Manny Montana) in her dining room, with a gun trained on her bloodied and beaten husband, Dean (Matthew Lillard). As the last season came to a close, a shaken Beth was left holding Rio's gun as he taunted her to pull the trigger - what happens in the wake of that will have life changing consequences that ripple through the entire season for Beth and her fellow grocery store robbers Ruby (Retta) and Annie (Mae Whitman).
