In this episode of Cinematalk, Johnnymelodica reads a passage from Holderlin’s epistolary novel Hyperion and ponders the glories of the ancients, sees the ‘beauty in this world’ along with Ricky Fitts in Sam Mendes’ “American Beauty” (1999), meditates upon snowstorms, follows Heidegger up the Danube river into the Black Forest in “Der Ister” (2004), and gets caught up in a fatal love triangle in Henri-Georges Clouzot’s French drama “La Verite” (1960, Brigitte Bardot).
