The great Alain Resnais at the New York Film Festival press conference for his latest film, the mind-blowing Wild Grass. Alternating between French and English, the maestro held forth on the future of cinema (it involves Arnaud Desplechin), his favorite television shows (The Sopranos...The Shield?!?...X FIles (of course)..DID he say The Wire?) and whether or not he's an auteur. He says not so much, we say hell yeah he is.
Grass supporting player Mathieu Amalric was also in attendance, and all the shots I got of him were pretty shitty, but I'm putting up this one anyway, because the actor had this gaze of adoring concentration fixed on his director throughout, and I thought that was adorable.
