France | 1968 | Alain Resnais
This little-known major work from Alain Resnais, the director of Hiroshima, Mon Amour and Last Year at Marienbad who died in March, is a sci-fi nightmare that deals with Resnais’ usual themes of time and memory. A man who attempted suicide finds himself a guinea pig in a time-travel experiment gone awry; he can’t escape his life’s unhappy moments. “Five stars (highest rating)…A masterpiece…You can see why Michel Gondry cited this as a major influence on his sci-fi romance, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” –Time Out New York.
