"The most alive movie I saw at the New York Film Festival... leaves me with a whole album of indelible images and unnerving emotions." – Jonathan Rosenbaum
Master of the playful conspiracy, Rivette revisits the terrain of OUT 1 and CELINE AND JULIE GO BOATING in this mind-bending meta-thriller. Two women--claustrophobic Marie (Bulle Ogier), just out of prison, and paranoid Baptiste (Pascale Ogier, Bulle’s real-life daughter), under surveillance by a series of men all named Max--meet, bond, and embark on an adventure. Armed with a map that transforms the city into a giant game board, they set out across the Paris of Feuillade and the Surrealists, a vast labyrinth bathed in daylight and filled with conspiracies within conspiracies. In French with English subtitles. A Cinema Conservancy release. 35mm. (MR)
NOVEMBER 17: Lecture by School of the Art Institute instructor Fred Camper.
