Dust in the Wind


Night of the Hunter

Rosemary's Baby


My major film highlight this month was watching films by Hou Hsiao-hsien in Singapore (you can read all about it here).

Another highlight is I finally got to see Night of the Hunter starring Robert Mitchum, and an impromptu double bill at home with Rosemary's Baby and Possession.

Very Big Shot, a film from Lebanon by Mir-Jean Bou Chaaya was a great discovery and a suprise and I urge you to seek this film out. I wrote some thoughts about it here. Was also glad to re-watch Theeb at the cinema when it was re-released to celebrate its Oscar Best Foreign Film nomination.
