Film Forum were kind enough to send me a review copy of Marco Bellocchio’s acidic CHINA IS NEAR, so how could it not be this fortnight’s edition of The Forgotten? Here.

The Forgotten delves into LE CHATEAU DE VERRE – a highly unusual love story from 1950, directed by man of the moment René Clément.

Last week’s edition of The Forgotten got bumped owing to Berlin, so here it is this week. Nobody guess who the image was off or what the film was last week, which is hardly surprising — you would had to have just watched the movie to recall the shot, and nobody out there is watching this movie, which is why I wrote about it in the Forgotten. A neglected production by international shady producers the Salkinds, made right after their THREE MUSKETEERS films with Richard Lester, and starring Milady herself, Faye Dunaway, who’s paired with Frank “Disco Dracula” Langella — already, this sounds like a film that should be better known, and when you factor in Rene Clement as director, a sensation of “where have you been all my life?” starts to obtrude.
