BAM’s Arnaud Desplechin Retrspective: Must See Cinema

BAM's Arnaud Desplechin Retrspective: Must See Cinema

On the eve of Wellspring’s upcoming release of Kings and Queen, the good folks at my cinematic local, The Brooklyn Academy of Music have assembled a five day retrospective of the works of Arnaud Desplechin, my favorite living filmmaker. The most exciting aspect of the retrospective is, for me, the chance to see La Vie Des Morts and Léo: Playing In the Company of Men on the big screen. Neither film is currently available on DVD or video, so this is a wonderful oppotunity to see two wildly underappreciated but very important films in Desplechin’s body of work. Most exciting of all, I have been granted an interview with Desplechin this Friday that indieWIRE has promised to run. After the interview runs, I hope to be able to post a more complete and in-depth version of the interview on this site… So, if there are any Desplechin fans out there who would have any questions, use the Comments section below to post them and I will see if I can get some answers from the man himself. It all begins tonight at 7:00 with a screening of my favorite Desplechin film, My Sex Life… or how I got into an argument. In the meantime, a little preparation for the interview and your questions: My thoughts on Desplechin and Kings and Queen from this year’s Toronto Film Festival. I hope to see you at BAM (Brooklyn represent!)
