Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles ★★★

Sixty-eighth movie in 52 Feature films by women 2020.

It took it being on Nicola's syllabus for a class, but we did it!

Honestly much more active than I had anticipated and been led to believe, nothing of note happens necessarily, but a lot happens.

I was reminded of what I said about The Color of Pomegranates feeling like the cinematic equivalent of ambient music if I didn't find ambient music engaging, because this is the cinematic equivalent of ambient music that I do find engaging. Mostly at least, it definitely gets harder as it goes on and we just hold on Jeanne sitting in a chair for what feels like 3 minutes straight.
