Alain Robbe-Grillet: Six Films 1963-1974 (Blu-ray) BFI

$69.95

Perhaps best known as the writer of Alain Resnais’ classic cine-conundrum Last Year of Marienbad, Alain Robbe-Grillet was also the director a number of stylish, erotic films which starred such icons of French cinema as Jean-Louis Trintignant (Haneke’s Amour, Bertolucci’s The Conformist) and Isabelle Huppert (Claire Denis’ White Material).

Impossible to see for decades, these enigmatic, sexually charged films have now been collected together for the very first time, and are made available here in beautifully remastered high definition presentations. This Blu-ray collection includes: The Immortal One (1963), Trans-Europe-Express (1967), The Man Who Lies (1968), Eden and After (1970), N. Took the Dice (1971) and Successive Slidings of Pleasure (1974).

Extra features include video introductions by Catherine Robbe-Grillet, filmed interviews with Alain Robbe-Grillet by Frederic Taddei, and newly-recorded, exclusive feature-length commentaries by cult-cinema authority Tim Lucas.
