wow. over two days and no comments for Pialat. Under the Sun of Satan has been one of my most rewatched VHS tapes in the DVD era. anyone without a major appreciation for Depardieu need only watch his Pialat films. U.S. release of this Pialat series would help to get more on board.

I'm glad to learn of this. I saw it at a 10am press screening in 1987 and (I think) drifted in and out of consciousness so that I wasn't sure what was the movie and what was a dream. The truth is, I am rarely fully awake until afternoon... or sundown. I have always wanted to give it another shot.

I've been buying the MoC Pialats when I can afford to - so many DVDs, so little cash - and so far the series has been incredible, with "La Guele Ouverte" the highlight for me.
Its incredibly exciting to discover a director whose films feel utterly unique and unlike anybody elses. The fact that he doesn't enjoy a reputation similar to some of his French peers is baffling...
