RIP: Alain Resnais
Alain Resnais - 1922-2014, aged 91. One of the most acclaimed French directors .... some of his titles suffice:
HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR, 1959
LAST YEAR IN MARIENBAD, 1961 - below
PROVIDENCE, 1977, script by David Mercer, featuring John Gielgud, Dirk Bogarde, David Warner, Ellen Burstyn, Elaine Stritch. Its endlessly fascinating as we ponder what is real or imaginary ....
I shall be finally catching his 1955 32-minute NIGHT AND FOG before too long ....
