RIP Alain Resnais. We have one more film from the master to look forward to, AIMER, NOIRE ET CHANTER, (love, drink and sing) based on Alan Ayckbourn’s play THE LIFE OF RILEY. Suddenly, Resnais’s titles have a posthumous sound. But also the sound of a man who loved life and movies. LOVE UNTO DEATH. LA VIE EST UN ROMAN (above). YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN’ YET. PROVIDENCE.

I’ve recently been catching up on all the Resnais I haven’t seen, prompted by my screening of JE T’AIME, JE T’AIME for the ’68 Comeback Special. There’s a huge body of great work to see. If you haven’t started, start now. If you’ve seen them all before, see them again.
