Poet Craftsman of Cinema

Starting October 2nd, the west coast of the USA gets a taste of the pleasures the east coast was able to enjoy recently, as Berkeley’s PFA screens a tribute to Julien Duvivier, featuring LA FIN DU JOUR, LE BELLE EQUIPE, LA TETE D’UN HOMME, POIL DE CAROTTE, and many more. I’ll be there in spirit. Hope some Los Angelinos can drop in on the movies and report back. Am inclining to the view that there’s no such thing as a bad Duvivier, although not all of them reach the heights of the quartet listed above.
