    Was surprised to see a RedBox today. They didn't have The French Dispatch on Blu Ray?

    They did not. I took what I could get. Besides I'll buy it on Blu-ray when Criterion releases it down the road.

    Cairo Station is pretty good, maybe even great. I saw that thanks to Netflix two years ago I think.

    That's how I saw it as well. It's a humdinger of a melodrama shot in a neorealist style and a comprehensive inventory of Egyptian modernity circa 1958 (mass transit, pinups, Coca-Cola, hipster rock 'n' rollers, Marilyn Monroe); when a pair of religious fundamentalists do briefly turn up, they're presented as comic fuddy-duddies.

    I really could have and should have written something about on my blog. I too admired how it balanced the past with then modern aspects clashing against each other. The ending is pretty intense, too.

    That's how I saw it as well. It's a humdinger of a melodrama shot in a neorealist style and a comprehensive inventory of Egyptian modernity circa 1958 (mass transit, pinups, Coca-Cola, hipster rock 'n' rollers, Marilyn Monroe); when a pair of religious fundamentalists do briefly turn up, they're presented as comic fuddy-duddies.
