Le Roi De L'Évasion
France | 2009 | Alain Guiraudie
The film that Alain Guiraudie made before Stranger by the Lake (see 5/1 & 4) was “the revelation of Lincoln Center’s recent Guiraudie retrospective,” according to the Anthology Film Archives. (Their April-June program book also calls it “one of the greatest films in recent memory.”) The King of Escape is an outlandish sex farce in which an obese, gay, rural tractor salesman becomes the unlikely love object of his boss’s teenage daughter. They run away together, setting off a chain of bizarre events. “Guiraudie’s most purely enjoyable film.” –Film Comment.
