#159 Éric Rohmer Ranked List
I saw a Rohmer film once. It was kind of like watching paint dry.
- Harry Moseby in Night Moves (1975)
I don't feel the same way, but my experiences with Rohmer do seem to be more dependent on my attitude in the moment than most directors. I can pick up a genre film like a Jersey Mikes sandwich, but I have to WANT to see a Rohmer. Problem is, I'm rarely in that mood.
With that in mind, I need to be extremely selective about what I watch here. ICM has 18 films that appear on a list. Chloe in the Afternoon
(1972) is on 4 Official Lists, so that seems a wise choice. The thread has a lot of recommendations, and I want to have something else on standby in case I want to watch more. Top picks based on my familiarity with the titles would be...Pauline at the Beach
(1983)A Tale of Winter
