R.I.P. Alain Resnais

Alain Resnais.

Alain Resnais died, aged ninety-one, leaving the world a sadder place for the knowing we will never see another one of his films. He has made two of my personal favorite movies that fall in my “top ten” (if such a thing can possibly exist) and they are Last Year At Marienbad and Hiroshima Mon Amour. The film he made last year in 2013, You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet was one of my favorites in the year, and I am very pleased there will be another Alain Resnais film for me to see in the forthcoming year (Life of Riley). I haven’t seen all Resnais films, I’ll make sure I get to them all of course.

In the meantime, I have a few reviews that I will list below, if you feel like taking a trip down memory lane with one of the greatest directors that ever lived.

(Sigh) It’s really sad.
