Fantastic interview, Glenn.



Great interview. Irma Vep is actually one of my less-favorite Assayas films, which might show you how high I regard his work. But when is Cold Water going to be available on DVD (or is it already and I just don't realize it)? I've been hearing about it for years, but never had the chance to see it.

Sadly, Cold Water is beset with music rights issues that I doubt anyone can afford to resolve. But man is it good.

Cold Water, l'Eau Froide, is available in a french DVD boxset along with Désordre and Irma Vep. I'm not sure it has english subtitles (I land mine to a friend), but I'm sure it's enjoyable all the same (well, being french speaking and all).


great interview, thank you!

Mr. Movies

Good stuff :)


Saw him interviewed at the Curzon in London when he was promoting Summer Hours, and thought then that he was a great interviewee (mind you, the last person I saw speaking at the Curzon was Lou Reed...) - but so good to see a filmmaker who seems to actually enjoy talking about their work. Saw Irma Vep for the first time in a decade a few weeks ago, and it holds up really well: that Brakhage meets Feuillade ending is wonderful...

Summer Hours just proves what an extraordinarily adaptable filmmaker he is - and Juliette Binoche's flourescent jacket was the most dizzying costume of the year... I know it's on another thread, but I was so happy to see Breillat's Une Vielle Maitresse so high up on your list: I've been telling everyone I've met since I saw it in May to see it, but usually to looks of utter bemusement...
