May 2017 in Films

May was another month filled with auteurist completism. I tried to finish all of Michelangelo Antonioni’s films. While I didn’t finish all of his films, I did see everything we had streaming on FilmStruck and am only a few films shy of completing his directorial filmography. I also watched more Varda. My plan is to finish all her films on FilmStruck by the end of June. In May I also watched auteur television and by that I mean season two of Master of None, which was a fabulous tribute to Italian cinema. Check it out if you haven’t seen it already! As always, you can find my favorite films of the month + everything I watched after the cut.

Movie Quote of the Day – Lemale et ha’halal (Fill The Void), 2012 (dir. Rama Burshtein)


Shira: I’m sorry.
Yochay: About what?
Shira: About what happened.
Yochay: I know what happened to me, but tell me what happened to you.
Shira: I hurt you.
Yochay: Very much. And you, Shira?
Shira: Nothing.
Yochay: Are you sure?
Shira: You’re too close.
Yochay: I could have been closer.
