CONFIDENTIALLY YOURS
VIVEMENT DIMANCHE!
1983, Janus Films, 110 min, Dir: François Truffaut

In François Truffaut’s delightfully entertaining tribute to Hitchcock, a businessman (Jean-Louis Trintingnant) is wrongly accused of murder, and while he goes on the lam his secretary (Fanny Ardant) tries to find the real killer. Gorgeous black-and-white photography by Nestor Almendros and a witty screenplay (by Truffaut and frequent collaborators Suzanne Schiffman and Jean Aurel, adapting hardboiled American writer Charles Williams’ The Long Saturday Night) make this one of the director’s most enjoyable efforts.

HAPPY DEATH DAY
2017, Universal, 96 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Landon

SCREAM meets GROUNDHOG DAY in this darkly comedic slasher hit from Blumhouse Productions. University student Theresa "Tree" Gelbman (Jessica Rothe, in a breakout performance) caps off her birthday by getting murdered – only to wake up and re-experience the day’s events. As the process repeats itself, Tree gathers clues to stop her killer and escape the endless loop. “A snappy horror-comedy with a gentle romantic spine.” - Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times.
