After seeing the Alain Resnais film Last Year in Marienbad twice this past weekend I've been on a binge consuming essays on the film and searching for the British Film Institute's a book on the film as part of their BFI Classics series.

After locating the book I've dropped other readings and made the following my primary focus.

Last Year in Marienbad by Jean-Louis Leutrat.

It was a pretty great film. Having never seen it I was confused and attracted to it. The first showing I went to Saturday evening, four people walked out about an hour in. Sunday afternoon for my second viewing two people walked out.

It's such a strange and compelling film, but not for everyone.

The BFI book, though short has been enlightening with a large amount of production anecdotes and information, but has been a bit unsatisfying as far as the criticism and interpretation of the film goes.

I'm going to have to make a bit of a U-Turn here. I've dived back into Ancestor's Tale and I'm racing through it now. I think it was all the early-human stuff that I got bogged down in. Australopithecus this, proto-hominid that Sahelanthropus the other . . .


But since then, it's been really good. I'm still on mammals, which is kind of my area, I guess, but it's definitely been much easier going once out of the Human evolution stuff.

^^ That's good to know.

If my memory serves, I'm sure Adam (does he still frequent these boards?) had good things to say about it as well.
