Cannes Film Review: ‘Joan of Arc’

You have to hand it to Bruno Dumont, France’s dark prince of dour auteurism: He never makes the same film twice, even when he does, to all intents and purposes, make the same film twice. Two years ago, he offered his own singular contribution to cinema’s well-stocked canon of Joan of Arc dramas: As a […]

The canonization of teenagers.

Excerpt:[L]ifting her eyes and staring into the distance before her, González stood in silence. Inhaling and exhaling deeply—the microphone caught the susurration, like waves lapping a shoreline—González’s face was stoic, tragic. Her expression shifted only minutely, but each shift—her nostrils flaring, o...

Who would spray paint "Tear It Down" on a statue of Joan of Arc in New Orleans?

I'm reading this story at PJ Media  — which misquotes the graffiti in the headline and makes it sound as though the graffiti was on the statue when it's actually on the base. So let's switch to The Times-Picayune (which is linked at PJ Media): The phrase "Tear it Down" was hastily sprayed in black paint across the base of the golden Joan of Arc statue on Decatur Street in the French Quarter sometime earlier this week. It has since been removed, with only the vaguest traces of the paint remaining...

Rouen, A Beautiful Medieval City in Normandy

My passion for art and the Impressionists led my steps to Rouen, where I discovered the beautiful medieval quarter.   I had never been to Normandy before, and I was dreaming of visiting some of the main sights: Mont-Saint-Michel at low and high tide, a long reflection on the ravages of war at the WW1 battlefields, moments of bliss at one of the pretty towns along the coast, a walk on the cliffs of l’Etretat.      I soon found out that I needed much more time than three stretched day...

In the Louvre

After I saw the current Vermeer exhibit in the Louvre Museum, I walked around a bit in areas I usually don’t visit (Mona Lisa for instance). The Louvre is vast and full of only some of its treasures. Joan of Arc hearing the voices that lead her to don armor and lead men into battle. Next I wandered into the Napoleon III apartments. It was very luxurious. This light fixture was at the top of some stairs. There was gilding on just about every ceiling and many chandeliers. More gilding, lots of...
