it's not a bad film probably. i said the same to my mate and she said she loved it, it was close to her heart.I remember liking it when I saw it but that was so long ago I hardly remember it
Maybe some like it that way, but I don’t really interpret it that way. I view Frances Ha as more of an upper-middle class coming-into-adulthood story, but to versions point I think people like his movies because they’re comfortable/enjoyable, and also because they’re well made. I personally like the black and white approach for Frances Ha, but I can also see where some may find that pretentious (in a way where Nebraska strikes me as a harder film to call pretentious, maybe just due to subject matter).
I still haven't seen this doc of his. That, the Shawn/Gregory one, Mr Jealousy, and Highball are his only films I haven't seen yet.It was interesting to learn he's a big De Palma fan, to the point of doing a documentary on him. You can see it in certain shots in White Noise, but it was never something that occurred to me from watching the stuff prior to that.
There's a long interview between the two of them on the Criterion release of Blow Out too.
