I caught this morning’s 8:30 am screening of Wang Xiaoshuai‘s Chongquing Blues — the general grimness, slow pace and repetition did me in. I tried too late to get into an 11 am screening of Sabina Guzzanti‘s Draquila — Italy Trembles, a docu about Silvio Berlusconi. I’ve just come out of Radu Muntean‘s Tuesday, After Christmas — an emotionally rounded, very well acted Roumanian drama about an extra-marital affair and its inevitable consequence. And now I have 15 minutes to make a 4:30 pm screening of Im Sangsoo‘s The Housemaid. No time to write, much less think things through.
