Claire's Knee ★★★★

8/10
Wonderfully compelling and visually rich. Such beautiful atmosphere. Not really sure how critical it is of this main guy here. I enjoy the premise as a thought experiment so I don't mind if that's the point, but he's pretty hypocritical and borderline sketchy sometimes. I think that enough of those elements and others feel intentional so I'd say there's some criticism present. I guess it all comes down to whether or not the things he tells himself are actually true, which I suppose can be speculated on. And that's really the point here, to think about and discuss morality of the characters. Not my favorite Rohmer but, yeah, good stuff.
