3 things about Jan Schmidt’s LATE AUGUST AT THE HOTEL OZONE

Late August at the Hotel Ozone [1966]

1. After bludgeoning the dog, she wipes the butt of her rifle on the grass.
2. Her first glass of milk in 15 years. She’s too overwhelmed to drink it.
3. She stares at him for a moment and then walks away, leaving him where he fell.

Certainly one of the bleakest movies I’ve ever seen it. Very well done, simple and direct.

3 things about Ronald Neame’s THE HORSE’S MOUTH

The Horse’s Mouth [1958]

1. “You’re missing a big slice of life, Cokey. Half a minute of revelation’s worth a million years of know-nothing.”
“Who lives a million years?”
“A million people, every twelve months.”
2. As he stands up, he gives a little tug on the bottom of her skirt.
3. Two streaks of blue paint on his cheeks.

Why isn’t this film better known? It’s not only very funny, it’s also one of the best films I’ve ever seen about being an artist.
