This is a TV series, but it has so much good stuff, we should not miss it. I mean, it is about a young Pope (you don't say?), who is quite misanthropic, don't you think?

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. :)
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.
