    MST3k!! That’s awesome. I miss that show, and it’s like $20 for two episodes for the DVDs. Grr, and such.

    For the record, my only experience seeing “Those Who Love Me …” was seeing it the theater, where my primary reaction (pleased but puzzled) was of someone seeing a foreign-language film containing *way* too many subtitles coming at the viewer *way* too fast. An accurate assessment, or only an example of me being slow that night? In any case … imagine the fatigue of trying to keep up with the German subtitles of a print of “Sweet Smeel of Success” (the 2005 candidate for My Favorite Movie). Daunting, to say the least.

    Care to expatiate on the film, David?

    You can find my extensive expiations in the Winter 2002-03 of Film Quarterly (Volume 56, Number 2) IThose Who Love Me is quite a challenge, even for viewers who know French and/or are adept at subtitle-reading. But like all great works of art it’s one whose deepest rewards are to be culled from repeated viewings.
