Thanks for this as always (and for the nice pic) :)

Not at all, thanks, Sergio, for the contribution. Even mediocre French films often have good cinematography or at least framing for stills (see too much of Godard...and I'll have to go look to see who his, if any, default cinematographer has been). Interesting that the BBC Radio adaptation was superior, if a bit rushed.

I'm going to try to make my way through as many of these as I can before tomorrow. Where does the time go?

All the reviews? Don't burn yourself out! Looking forward to seeing more of yours!
