Last Year at Marienbad
Directed by Alain Resnais
Well, that was a weird one. No one seems to have any idea what really happened in this movie. I think the fun comes from forming your own theory and yelling at other people via the internet who have a different opinion. At least, that is what my research yielded. In any case, I found it to be confusing to the point of annoying.
So this guy, X, (real names are so passé) tells this woman that they met a year ago and agreed to meet up in a year. A, the woman, says this never happened. Then, M, her husband, denies it as well. And then, that's kind of it. After that I, as in Amanda, kind of zoned out.
I am sorry people, I could not get into this one. To me, it just came across as pretentious and dull. This was very disappointed, because I have loved all of Resnais' other work.
I had no idea what was going on and what's worse, I didn't care.
Included in "The Fifty Worst Films of All Time". Are intellectuals actually on my side for this? Very shocking.
