Movie Diary 11/7/2017

Right Now, Wrong Then (Hong Sang-soo, 2015). Missed this when it was new – it’s a typical narrative game from Hong, and I think one of his best. A film director tries to pick up a young painter, a situation we witness twice through; the first time the director is dishonest, the second time not. Hong shows his affinity to Eric Rohmer in a few different ways, including the way the director is in town for a film festival and was accidentally brought out a day early, leaving him at loose ends and available to be distracted.
