A masterful film with the same themes that Antonioni and Godard grapple with. More radical than any of Godard's 60s work. A masterpiece in color and mise-en-scene. I'm still recovering from this. A "horror" movie in every way, except it is not a genre movie at all. Extremely disturbing. The "plot" is secondary in this avant-garde work. It is really just the machinery for Robbe-Grillet to channel the themes of consumerism, alienation, superficiality, boredom, and nihilism in contemporary capitalist society.
On one hand I'm incredibly happy that this masterpiece finally is on a list, one the other hand I'm still sad that Robbe-Grillet's 9 other films aren't :(
the crowning achievement of a radical anti-narrative, painterly sort of filmmaker. catherine jourdan is as beautiful as the photography itself.
