La Rose de Sang – review

Director: Klaudia Lanka Release date: 2014 Contains spoilers Viewed at the 2020 IVFAF, this feature can be summed up in a single word, melodrama. Not that there is anything wrong with melodrama when done right, and this was certainly a good melodrama. A romance, most definitely, with a fairy-tale heritage. It also boasted, as we will see, some wonderful sets, the strangest of idiosyncrasies and a central performance which managed to single-handedly bring Jean Rollins’ work to mind. vict...

A Priceless Ignoramus.

Jim Holt’s NYRB review (July 19, 2018) of Lives of the Eminent Philosophers by Diogenes Laertius, translated by Pamela Mensch, starts off in Holt’s usual lively fashion: Poor Diogenes Laertius. He gets no respect. A “perfect ass”—“asinus germanus”—one nineteenth-century scholar called him. “Dim-witted,” said Nietzsche. An “ignoramus,” declared the twentieth-century classicist Werner Jaeger. In his lyric moods he wrote “perhaps the worst verses ever published,” an anthologist pronounced. And he h...

Bread and books

Twenty years ago, I met the most famous baker in the world. I was in Paris for a speech, and visited Poilane, a bakery much smaller than its reputation would lead you to believe. I was hoping to take home an unbaked kilo of dough, a sourdough, one that I could use to spawn hundreds of new loaves over the years. Proud of my sneakiness, I began by ordering $30 worth of loaves and tarts. And then, offhandedly said, “and an unbaked loaf please.” The clerks would have none of this. It was impossible,...

The best things to do in Albania

Although Albania emerged from Communist rule in December 1990, its process of opening up to the world has been slow, and it has been overlooked by even the most adventurous backpackers. Yet, sitting as it does the shores of both the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, between Montenegro and Greece, Albania has a lot to offer. It has stunning, near-empty beaches; ethereal mountains; a rich history. and budget-friendly prices. It’s hard not to be drawn in by this mysterious nation, the homeland of Mother...

11 times the Los Angeles Rams went Hollywood

The Los Angeles Rams arrived in L.A. in 1946, but you could argue they’d gone Hollywood two years earlier when they drafted UCLA quarterback Bob Waterfield, who married screen star Jane Russell when the team still played in Cleveland. Or maybe it happened in 1949 with “Easy Living,” in which the film’s fictional football players roles were played by Rams such as Kenny Washington, Elroy “Crazylegs” Hirsch, and Fred Gehrke (who created the Rams’ horns logo). Regardless of the exact moment, Hollywo...

"The Bullshit-Job Boom/For more and more people, work appears to serve no purpose. Is there any good left in the grind?"

By Nathan Heller at The New Yorker. In “Bullshit Jobs” (Simon & Schuster), David Graeber, an anthropologist now at the London School of Economics, seeks a diagnosis and epidemiology for what he calls the “useless jobs that no one wants to talk about.” He thinks these jobs are everywhere. By all the evidence, they are. His book, which has the virtue of being both clever and charismatic, follows a much circulated essay that he wrote, in 2013, to call out such occupations. Some, he thought, were st...

Billions Season 2, Episode 10 Recap: "With Our Without You"

With every passing week of watching this show I keep wondering: is their music budget a billion dollars? I mean, Bob Dylan last week, a gazillion other examples from previous weeks, and then this week a big, romantic final sequence set to “With or Without You.” This episode, of the same title as the song, focused on relationships over business (although, I guess you could argue that the two really feed off each other) and I absolutely loved it. But business before pleasure, so let’s talk about ...

The Monuments Men of Libya

True heroes, generous hearts: these are the Libyan archaeologists who, with Daesh at their heels, have accomplished the feat of completing the excavation of the Haua Fteah cave in Cyrenaica, one of the most important prehistoric sites of all Africa. When, in 2013, the team of international researchers involved at the site was forced to suspend work, nine Libyan archeologists - two women and seven men - successfully completed the excavation by themselves, securing its secrets for posterity....

My Paris Wedding

Buy Clotilde's latest book, The French Market Cookbook! On December 22, 2016, twenty years to the day after our first date, Maxence and I got married. It was a small wedding — just our parents, siblings, sons, and closest friends — that we decided on and planned in just two months, because we’re crazy like that. It was, quite suitably, the most magical, the most romantic day of my life, and I kinda want to do it again this year, and the next, and the next (with the same man, obv.). One of the b...

Island Hopping Around The Cyclades, Greece: Part III

I'm definitely in island hopping mode now. For those of you who read my first two articles describing my visits to Serifos and Milos, thanks for checking in once again - this time for my final stop. The next destination literally was a hop as the island of Kimolos is situated just 1km from north-eastern Milos. It was just a 20-minute ferry ride from Apollonia (the nearest point from Milos) to Kimolos on the local ferry. I arrived early evening. While it is significantly smaller, both geographic...

Sifnos - the Lesser Known Greek Island

Greece is well known for her islands - especially the more 'Disneyfied' commercial Cycladic ones such as Santorini and Mykonos. There are other, smaller and less well known Cycladic islands though, Sifnos being one of them, and one of my favourites. Location Location Location It's in the same chain of islands as Santorini and Mykonos, but have you heard of Sifnos? Probably not. With a regional population of less than 1000 and only 9 miles long (15km), it's the perfect destination if you're l...

Island Hopping Around The Cyclades, Greece: Part II

Howdy again - and thanks - to those of you who remembered to return to my tour of the Cyclades. To those of you who read Part I - and to the newcomers - welcome to Part II. Just a brief recap; my first destination was the island of Serifos. From visiting the main town, Chora, to paying a visit to a few of the numerous beaches, it certainly left an impression. I was also pleased with the research I did prior to leaving Athens, where I live, on choosing great accommodation in Aria Hotels ariahote...
