Domicile Conjugal

Ups and Downs. That's what's the marriage about in Truffaut's Domicile Conjugal (1970, Bed & Board). Truffaut's vision of it is somewhat juvenile and light-hearted, but it is funny and witty with many great moments, such as "If you use art to settle account, it's no longer art" and "If I were a woman, I couldn't stand it. Naked men are disgusting". Especially the latter, you know it's a true statement from Monsieur Truffaut. :)

Film Magistery #6: Burn After Reading/Age of Bullshit

In the sixth episode of Film Magistery Dino talks about the abundance of bullshit today around us and Coens’ underrated film Burn After Reading (2008), a tongue-in-cheek spy film about people who know nothing, but pretend to know a lot. It says a lot about the cultural and interpersonal condition of the modern society today. We ask what bullshit is and why is there so much of it around us.

A new Film Magistery episode is very close to be published. To warm you up here's the blatant clue to the film and the theme of the next episode. Can you guess it?

Typecast
