A Flickchart Guide to TCM in January

Jandy Hardesty

Jandy is especially drawn to classic, off-beat, and foreign film, but loves a good blockbuster action sequence, too. You can find her on Flickchart as faithx5. She also writes at The Frame, and co-hosts the occasional podcast Not at Odds at Row Three.

    I like the new post format. I missed Reflections in a Golden Eye when it played last month or the month before, so I’m going to catch it this time. Also looking forward to The Bad and the Beautiful.

      I haven’t seen Reflections, so I’ll be interested to hear what you think of it when you do. Bad and the Beautiful is great stuff.

      I change the format on this thing just about every time – someday I’ll hit on a good balance between comprehensiveness and manageability. :)

      Reflections was, I guess, what I expected, which was a good execution of a familiar plot pattern. The acting, good as it is, is actually not the most remarkable thing about it, because the cinematography is so unusual – it’s all heavily gold-tinted, which seems on-the-nose but is actually pretty cool! It’s very late-60s in its determination to push the boundaries, but fortunately it manages to come across as literary rather than tawdry.

    Please help!! I’m pretty sure it was in mid January 2016… I woke up in the middle of the night and a French film about a guy who poses as a reporter/biographer goes to a country house of a famous TV game show host. His real purpose is to find out what happened to his sister or wife (can’t remember). Anyway I purposely looked at the title in the onscreen guide because I wanted to watch the entire film at some point. I fell asleep and forgot the damn name… Like I said, I think it was mid January on TCM. One thing I do know is that “Story of Women” with Isabelle Humpert was on either the night prior or the next day, almost positive it was the night before. It’s been bugging me ever since and have spent too much time on IMDB trying to figure it out. Please help in any way, thanks!
