Post Alain Resnais is no more
Still making movies (Life of Riley comes out later this year), Alain Resnais passed away. The world lost a good one. I'm watching Last Year at Marienbad tomorrow in memoriam.

He put together quite a career. For those who haven't seen Night and Fog, I suggest you do so immediately. It is hands down one of the greatest films ever made about the Holocaust.

Post Re: Alain Resnais is no more
I've mostly just seen his acclaimed early work (Night And Fog, Hiroshima mon Amour, Last Night In Marienbad), but this is certainly a big loss in the cinema world. Night And Fog especially gets to me in a way no other film has. Any recommendations from anyone when it comes to his later films?

I've actually had Marienbad on loan from the library for the last couple weeks, because I felt it was time for a revisit. Now I know what I'll be watching sometime in the next couple of nights.

I just watched Hiroshima mon Amour a few months ago (also my first film of his). It seems promise a unique filmmaker whose works I have been meaning to explore more. RIP.

Wild Grass is pretty strange, but it's probably worth a look. I haven't seen Private Fears in Public Places or You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet, but they're probably worth a look. I'll catch his new film when it makes the rounds later this year.

Sad news. Well, he stayed active right to the end.
