Worth Watching - Aug 15: Claude Chabrol's A Girl Cut in Two Trailer
A subtitled trailer for the sensual French thriller A Girl Cut in Two has debuted online. I'm a bit nervous about featuring such a sexually infused French film yet again, because the last time I did (Water Lilies), I got in some trouble. But all that aside, I think this looks great and will be catching it at an art house theater soon. A Girl Cut in Two may seem like a lighthearted comedy at first glance, but it is actually a romantic thriller and dark comedy centered around a TV weather girl and the two men who pursue her. You've got to love French films, whether they're stylized action sci-fi like Babylon A.D. or whether they're sexual films like this. I'm glad I discovered this trailer, because I'll definitely be catching it in theaters.
