I think I'm going to try to catch my favorite, Resnais's new film this Thursday night instead. Actually this month there are just too many good movies out, without even mentioning the L.A. Film Festival.
PREVIEW SCREENING: WILD GRASS
Director: Alain Resnais
Writers: Alex Réval, Laurent Herbiet
Cast: Sabine Azéma, André Dussollier, Anne Consigny, Emmanuelle Devos, Mathieu Amalric
Widely acclaimed at its Cannes world premiere, the latest film from France’s master of space-time intrigue Alain Resnais may be his headiest concoction in decades. Racked by a mid-life crisis, George becomes obsessed with the owner of a mysterious purse that he chances upon: an aviatrix with a shocking red hair. As he tries to track her down, he becomes enveloped in a mystery of his own making. With its lush widescreen camerawork, playfully free-floating montage, and imaginative tonal shifts, Resnais’s latest mind-bending journey finds this 87-year-old filmmaker in peak form. “Sublime..Resnais’s finest work to date.”—The New York Times.
