Last Year At Marienbad – New 4K Restoration
Director: Alain Resnais
1961, France | Italy, 94 mins., 4K Digital Cinema, NR
The new 4K restoration of Alain Resnais’ 1961 Golden Lion Winner LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD comes to Oak Cliff This July! Or Does it?
“A shocking intimation of perfection.”
“The Epitome of Cinematic Modernism. Alain Resnais’s film seemed to break every rule classical Hollywood ever codified.”
“One of the strangest artifacts of cinema history…no other film has affected fashion as deeply.”
Ominous organ music resounds and the widescreen camera tracks through the seemingly endless halls of a baroque grand hotel as X tries to persuade an initially disbelieving A that they had met the year before. With dizzying time shifts and flashbacks, Last Year at Marienbad is the ultimate puzzle film.
