Two or Three Things I Know for Sure by Dorothy AllisonBastard Out of Carolina, nominated for the 1992 National Book Award for fiction, introduced Dorothy Allison as one of the most passionate and gifted writers of her generation. Now, in Two or Three Things I Know for Sure, she takes a probing look at her familys history to give us a lyrical, complex memoir that explores how the gossip of one generation can become legends for the next.
Illustrated with photographs from the authors personal collection, Two or Three Things I Know for Sure tells the story of the Gibson women -- sisters, cousins, daughters, and aunts -- and the men who loved them, often abused them, and, nonetheless, shared their destinies. With luminous clarity, Allison explores how desire surprises and what power feels like to a young girl as she confronts abuse.
As always, Dorothy Allison is provocative, confrontational, and brutally honest. Two or Three Things I Know for Sure, steeped in the hard-won wisdom of experience, expresses the strength of her unique vision with beauty and eloquence.
2 ou 3 Choses que je Sais d'Elle (Two or Three Things I Know About Her)
As the city of Paris and the French people grow in consumer culture, a housewife living in a high-rise apartment with her husband and two children takes to prostitution to help pay the bills. Dad: Objects mean more on a plane than people, why must a vehicle exist more than your loving parents? I can't figure out if I liked this film or just liked the idea of it. I like what it is trying to do, on paper it seems like something I would love to see. Godard tends to get too overly philosophical thick and fast and whilst I do see the sparks and I do see myself being entranced by the madness too much of it just doesn't stick, and he's just so heavy-handed with it all. Sometimes it just feels like the type of shit you toss back and forth with your friend at 3am in the morning after too many beers, and right now I'm way too sober for your shit, Godard.
The film is at its best when documenting everyday life in Paris or at least, Godard's interpretation of same. In keeping with its dichotomous leading character, Two or Three Things was filmed simultaneously with Godard's Made in USA; one was lensed in the daytime, the other at night.

Like the other two Week End and La Chinoise , it is considered both socially and stylistically radical. Village Voice critic Amy Taubin considers it one of the greatest achievements in filmmaking. The film does not tell a story so much as present an essay-like study of Godard's view of contemporary life; Godard wrote that "I wanted to include everything: sports, politics, even groceries. Everything should be put in a film". The film often cuts to various still shots of bright consumer products and ongoing construction.
