I am in the mood for a good flick this weekend. Kanopy to the rescue. It pays to have a library card. With a limit of five films per month, Lydia Lunch: The War is Never Over by Beth B is getting my full attention this weekend. I honestly do not know much about Beth B, so this should be a treat.
There is more to a library card nowadays. You can download books, audiobooks, music, stream, and graphic novels without setting foot in a library. My favorite freebie from my local library is Kanopy. The avantgarde streaming service is a welcome addition for unusual classic movies that you will not find with other streaming services. You stream thousands of films for free, thanks to the generous support of your public library or university. I am allocated 5 movies a month. This weekend I am watching The Torment by director Claude Chabrol from 1996. The French title is L’enfer. I do not know why they do not translate it as Hell. The movie stars Emmanuelle Béart, François Cluzet, and Nathalie Cardone.
