What Got This Director Here?: Mother and the Whore.
My Favorite Past Experience Was…: N/A
What Did I Watch: Mother and the Whore.
Where Does He Fit: I cannot claim The Mother and the Whore is an easy watch, as it essentially traps you with three of the most unbearable characters in history for three and a half hours. And yet the length serves a purpose in fully trapping you in the worlds of these characters, like amber. Jean-Pierre Leaud gets to have the most fun, of course, but watching this threesome monologue at one another for a very long time slowly approaches transcendence if you let it, with sudden events changing things very quickly after a long period of slowness. That is how life is. It sucks.
Most Valuable Asset: Time and talk.
Most Excited For: My Little Loves.
Did They Deserve a Spot?: Seems very likely.
Coming Up Next: Spike Lee, the foremost African American auteur.
