Re-watched L'Atalante for the first time in years on Hulu (WmC - should be free until April 1?) and it is just ridiculously good. So much love for Simon and Dita Parlo.

got the Vigo blu for Christmas and it's fantastic. I had only ever seen L'Atlante before and it was a horrific VHS copy about 13 years ago so this was a real breath of fresh air. Haven't watched the commentary yet but I know so little about his biography that I wouldn't mind.

Jean Daste much sexier than I remembered in L'Atalante ... and that sequence of he and Dita Parlo touching themselves alone in bed....
I like the peddler's line about the dryness of the biscuits too.
