Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

 ... you can learn from:

The Tenant (1976)

Stella: Why don't you take your tie off?
You look like you're choking to death.
Trelkovsky: I found a tooth in my
apartment. It was in a hole.

I love the constant streams of non-sequiturs in The Tenant, don't you? I've seen that movie half a dozen times at this point and it still manages to disorient me with every view. Anyway a happy 67th birthday to Isabelle Adjani today! I know she works plenty but I feel like I myself haven't seen her in a movie in awhile, so I'm pretty excited to see her in François Ozon's next one, the Fassbinder-riffing Peter Von Kant. I mean I'd be excited to see Ozon riffing on Fassbinder no matter what but Isabelle being there's a plus! Here's an image of an album cover (via) involving Isabelle's character:

I guess I'm gonna have to finally see The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant before I see this one. Fassbinder films have always been down my list of what to see. They seldom make the top of my list.

Love her, and DDL...but as of late have questioned them letting their son star in Gina Carano vehicle "Terror on the Prairie." Now I know parents only have so much say, that he's an adult, and that DDL didn't seem to be too involved in his upbringing but yeah...questionable.
