Resnais article

There is a very interesting article on the French filmmaker Alain Resnais in today's NY Times. I must admit that I've never seen a single film of this much-lauded artist, but the article was a joy to read and I'm definitely going to try to see some of Resnais' work in the near future. His most famous films are probably Hiroshima Mon Amour, Last Year at Marienbad and Con Air.

I've been meaning to watch more of his stuff. I've seen Night and Fog, which was pretty good.

Juest recently watched Hiroshima Mon Amour and it was fantastic. Hypnotic, poetic and beautiful. But the main attraction is the powerful performance of Emmanuelle Riva. Deserves to be on the list of all-time greatest debut performances.
