VALLEY OF THE BEES (dir. František Vláčil, 1968)

This was Vláčil’s followup to Marketa Lazarová. It’s not as good, but it’s still pretty beautiful.

atsuperfluously said: Got another one for you: Battleborn by Claire Vaye Watkins. It’s a collection of stories. Came out last year. I had such an intense reaction to the first story, I nearly broke down in a movie line. It only got better.

Thanks! I’ll look for it the next time I hit the used bookstore. (And I just found out she went to Ohio State, so there’s another reason to check her out!)
