A month at the movies #9: The Rules Of The Game
My wife was in another room of the house while I was watching this classic French film recently, and had to tell me to calm down because I kept yelling out 'fucking bourgeois scum!' as I watched it.
I couldn't help it, because they really are fucking bourgeois scum. The fatalism in Jean Renoir's film is heavy in every frame, especially when it's made in 1939 and the Nazis are definitely coming, but the cruel cluelessness of the fools in this story still enrages.
