Last Year at Marienbad

Last Year at Marienbad

We think that this film by Alain Resnais is one of the best movies we’ve ever seen. It’s a textbook example of a subtitled, black and white art house film from the early 1960s. OK, we know – you’re about to say “Boooooring”. If so, we must respectfully disagree. Sure, it’s not a Spielberg action flick, but we think that’s a good thing. Watching the film, one gets the sense that nothing exists outside the upscale European chateau/hotel that provides the setting for the elusive story line. You may find that it’s not your cup of tea, but if you can allow yourself to be immersed in the world of the film, it’s well worth your time.
