Yesterday I suggested a remake of Robert Bresson’s Au Hasard Balthazar, not realizing that one had already been made by the great Jay Chandrasekhar and released last summer by Warner Bros. Here’s a review and an excerpt: “Chandresekhar is one of the saints of the cinema, and The Dukes of Hazzard is his most heartbreaking prayer. The film follows the life of a muscle car from birth to death, while all the time living it the dignity of being itself — a dumb machine, noble in its acceptance of a life over which it has no control. The General Lee is not one of those cartoon cars that can talk and sing and is a human with four wheels. The General Lee is a muscle car, and it is as simple as that.” Apologies to Roger Ebert, but this is good.
